The Redskins thought they struck gold last October when they traded a fourth-round pick for then-Packers safety HaHa Clinton-Dix, who was widely considered one of the best safeties in the NFL at the time.
But in nine games with the Burgundy and Gold, Clinton-Dix's performance with largely disappointing. The Redskins allowed the safety to walk in free agency, and he signed with the Chicago Bears on a one-year deal this past offseason.
Clinton-Dix returned to FedExField for the Bears Week 3 Monday Night Football clash with the Redskins, and it didn't take long for the former Redskin to make a play.
On a third-and-9 play deep in Redskins territory, quarterback Case Keenum misfired on a pass intended for Trey Quinn. Clinton-Dix intercepted Keenum's pass and followed an array of white jerseys down the right sideline until he found the end zone, giving his new team an early 7-0 lead over his old one.
The interception was Clinton-Dix's first with the Bears.
Facing one of the best defenses in the NFL in Chicago, Washington will need Keenum to perform a lot better than he did on the team's opening drive in order to pull off the upset.
