There’s little to worry about on this Friday the 13th, especially when it’s your birthday.

That’s right, Redskins fans. Cornerback E.J. Biggers is celebrating his 27th birthday on this day of fear long ingrained in American history.

But you shouldn’t fear on this occasion. As Biggers continues to grow in the Redskins defense, the only panicky feeling should be coming from opposing wide receivers.

Redskins Blog’s gift to you, E.J., is a look back at your first season with the burgundy and gold.

After four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Biggers joined the Redskins on Mar. 20, 2013, rejoining his former head coach Raheem Morris (Redskins defensive backs coach) in the process.

In the first game of the season vs. Philadelphia, Biggers recorded a season-high seven tackles and one pass defensed.

His top highlight moment of 2013, though, came against the San Diego Chargers in a thrilling 30-24 overtime victory.

The Chargers were nearing the 50-yardline of a 7-0 game midway through the second quarter when, on 2nd-and-5, Biggers intercepted San Diego quarterback Phillip Rivers.

Not only did his interception give the Redskins 12-straight games with a forced turnover, the most since the 1999 season, but it set-up running back Alfred Morris for a touchdown just four plays later.

Biggers completed the 2013 season with 35 tackles, two passes defensed and that interception.
