Ha Ha Clinton-Dix named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

His two interceptions at Chicago set up two Green Bay touchdowns


GREEN BAY -- Packers S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 15.

The third-year safety intercepted two passes from Bears QB Matt Barkley on back-to-back series in the third quarter on Sunday in Chicago, both setting up touchdowns for Green Bay's offense in the victory.

It's the second time this season Clinton-Dix has posted two interceptions in a game. He also did it against Indianapolis, and those were also in the same quarter as well (first).

Clinton-Dix is now tied for the league lead among safeties with five interceptions. The Giants' Landon Collins also has five. This is the first player of the week award for Clinton-Dix, a first-round draft pick out of Alabama in 2014.

Clinton-Dix also earned his first Pro Bowl selection on Tuesday.
