Heroes of the Week: Redskins Remember Taylor With Empty Spot On Opening Play

Sean Taylor's untimely death at the hands of burglars last week has left the club stunned, shocked, and sorrowful.

They wrestled over whether they should play this week's game against Buffalo or postpone it.

Taylor's family requested the Redskins honor Sean by taking the field.

When they did, the defense took the field with only 10 men lined up for the first play. Taylor's safety spot was left unattended.

It was the ultimate honor for a true warrior.

The Redskins are our Heroes of The Week.
