Swearinger recorded 79 tackles (61 solo), 10 passes defensed, four interceptions, one forced fumble and 0.5 sacks across 16 contests this season.
Swearinger's first season in the nation's capital was one for the books, as the safety notched career-highs in almost every statistical category. He was second on the team in tackles and provided a consistent presence in Washington's secondary, as his 1,095 defensive reps were the most on the defensive unit.
Swearinger logged his third interception of the season in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints.
Swearinger now has three picks across the previous two weeks, while he had not recorded any prior to that. The 26-year-old also came one tackle short of a season high by posting six (five solo) on the day. He was one of four Redskins defenders to see all 71 defensive snaps in the contest.
Swearinger recorded both his first and second interception of the season Sunday against the Vikings.
Swearinger also recorded five tackles (three solo) to go along with his pair of picks. The 26-year-old intercepted Case Keenum with a few minutes left in the third quarter, and then once again on the first play of the fourth. He now has recorded two passes defended in consecutive week.
Swearinger recorded five tackles (five solo) and a sack in Monday's loss to the Chiefs.
After his participation in practice declined last week, it was suspected that Swearinger would not suit up for Monday's game, but he instead turned in one of his best performances in a Redskins' uniform. He'll now get some extended time to rest and get healthy as the team heads into their bye week.
Swearinger (hamstring) is officially active for Monday night's game against the Chiefs.
Swearinger didn't illustrate optimism as he practiced less and less as the week wore on to earn a questionable tag, but apparently he is ready to go Monday. The 26-year-old should resume his duties as starting free safety as the Redskins attempt to slow Kareem Hunt and the Chiefs vaunted rushing attack.
