Kia MVP Of The Game: Redskins Safety D.J. Swearinger

Posted Nov 13, 2017

This week's Kia MVP of the Game is Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger, who logged the first multi-interception game of his career.

On an afternoon when the Washington Redskins struggled to slow the Minnesota Vikings’ offense, safety D.J. Swearinger did his best to flip the script.

Starting in the second quarter and then extending into the third quarter, the Vikings at one point scored four touchdowns on four straight drives. They looked primed to make it five out of five late in the third quarter.

That was until Swearinger stepped in for his first interception with the Redskins. Then on Case Keenum’s next throw early in the fourth quarter, the South Carolina product picked off another pass.

While it wasn’t enough to help the Redskins get a victory over the Vikings, Swearinger has been named Kia MVP of the Game.

The first one, I told [Deshazor Everett] to go down. I’ll usually be guarding the tight end, but I figured a play was coming, so I just told him to go down so I could play free,” Swearinger said. “Just read them. On the second one, I held my disguise. I knew if I held my disguise, he’ll throw it. If I didn’t hold my disguise, he wouldn’t ever throw it. I just held my disguise and he threw it. I should’ve been in the end zone on that one, but it was two good plays.”
