CHICAGO – With their outstanding work completed, cornerback DeAngelo Hall and defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth celebrated briefly together late Sunday afternoon while the Washington Redskins’ offense finished a 17-14 victory over the Chicago Bears.

The close friends definitely were entitled.

Hall tied the NFL record with four interceptions – including one that resulted in a 92-yard go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter – and Haynesworth dominated the Bears’ offensive line, providing the biggest contributions in Washington’s superb defensive performance before 62,155 at Soldier Field.

“DeAngelo . . . DeAngelo was incredible,” inside linebacker and defensive captain London Fletcher said. “I mean, four interceptions, and one for a touchdown when they’re driving on us, you can’t say enough about that. And Albert, he played some major football for us today. I told the big fella, he played some dominant football for us.”

Often lightning rods for controversy during their brief careers with the franchise, Hall and Haynesworth had – by far – their best performances in Redskins uniforms in leading the defense’s six-takeaway outing. Washington last had six takeaways on Jan. 1, 2006, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

All of Hall’s interceptions came in the game’s final 24 minutes. The two-time Pro Bowler helped the Redskins (4-3) overcome a four-point halftime deficit and match their win total from last season. Hall also scored Washington’s only touchdown in the season-opening victory over the Cowboys when he stripped running back Tashard Choice and returned the fumble 32 yards as time expired in the first half.

The seven-year veteran, who has a team-leading five interceptions, became the first Redskins defensive player to score two defensive touchdowns in a season since Andre Collins (two interception returns) accomplished the feat in 1994. Hall has two defensive touchdowns in a season for the first time in his career.

So who do the Redskins play next week? The Detroit Lions in Detroit. The Redskins lost to the Lions last year 19-14. Oh mercy 😦
