Despite a disappointing finish to the 2011 season, the Redskins had very rare success against the conference rival Giants, sweeping the season series for the first time since 1999.
On Sunday, the Giants will take on the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC conference crown, leaving Redskins fans to wonder if this has any bearing on the value of the Redskins’s season.

Young showed that he was willing and capable of playing fullback at a high level last year, and enjoyed his first season as a starter in 2011.
Breaking the mold has been a theme in Young’s football career, starting at its very roots. Young grew up in an Army household with 12 brothers and sisters.
