Nov. 27, 2007: Superstar Sean Taylor Passes Away

Nov. 27, 2007: Superstar Sean Taylor Passes Away

On Nov. 27, 2007, Redskin superstar safety Sean Taylor died a day after being shot in a break-in at his home in Miami. The passing of one of the NFL’s best players marked the biggest D.C. sports tragedy since Maryland basketball star Len Bias died of cocaine intoxication in 1986 and the biggest Redskin tragedy since Vince Lombardi’s death in 1970. The Redskins and their legion of fans were devastated. Compounding the agony was a 1-point loss to Buffalo that dropped the Redskins to 5-7, and left their playoff hopes flickering. But the resilient squad, playing in memory of Taylor, swept the Bears, Giants, Vikings and Cowboys to clinch a Wild Card spot.
