E.J. Biggers, David Amerson get INTs for Redskins
The Washington Redskins earned an overtime victory over San Diego on Sunday of Week 9 and got two big interceptions from the defense. Cornerbacks E.J. Biggers and David Amerson each intercepted a Philip Rivers pass during the game.
Biggers returned his pick 15 yards for Washington and Amerson didn't have any return yards, but came up with a highly impressive takeaway. Biggers had three tackles in the game and Amerson six. Five were solo stops.
The 21-year-old rookie Amerson, who went to North Carolina State, has two interceptions for the season, one returned for a touchdown. He also has 30 tackles this season. Biggers, a veteran, has 18 tackles and recorded his first INT of the year.
