Hall Named NFC Defensive Player Of Week

Posted Nov 30, 2011

DeAngelo Hall posted seven tackles, seven passes defended and an interception that sealed the Redskins' 23-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday. It's his second NFC Defensive Player of the Week award.


Quite a week for DeAngelo Hall.

He began last week suggesting the Redskins ought to cut him after he yielded a big play in the team's 27-24 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

He ended the week with a strong performance in the Redskins' 23-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks. For his efforts, he was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Hall posted seven tackles, a career-high seven passes defended and a interception late in the fourth quarter that sealed the Redskins' victory.

Hall was part of a pass defense that yielded just 126 passing yards and a 46.7 completion percentage, the lowest of any NFL team in Week 12.

Hall admitted the award caught him a little by surprise.

"Definitely," he told reporters on Wednesday. "I didn’t realize I had seven pass breakups. I definitely remembered dropping a couple picks, but I didn’t expect this at all.”

As for rebounding from his disappointing performance vs. Dallas the previous week, Hall said: "It feels good to respond the way you’re supposed to."

Added head coach Mike Shanahan: "He had a great week of practice and it showed on Sunday that he deserves NFL Defensive Player of the Week. That doesn’t happen all the time and he had the mental toughness to come back [Dallas game] and play one of his better games.”

It's the second time Hall has won NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. He previously won the away last year after his four intereption performance against the Chicago Bears in Week 7.

Previously this season, Brian Orakpo won NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for his performance in the Redskins' 17-10 win over the St. Louis Rams in Week 4.
