The Washington Football Team surprised everyone with their astonishing victory against the previously unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers including Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James via Bleacher Report. The four-time NBA MVP was ecstatic for the team's win and showed his support to promising defensive end Chase Young on Twitter.

The rookie was also hyped as he responded to the tweet by James afterward.

The NBA star has been looking out for Chase Young since his days with the Ohio State Buckeyes in the collegiate ranks, primarily since James also hailed from the same state. Young previously concluded an eventful three-year stint with the Buckeyes before he took the leap and made it to the big leagues.
Even though he didn't tally eye-popping numbers with only two total tackles in the game, the rookie still managed to make his impact be felt in his team's most recent victory. He was able to lead the defensive rotation in their bid to limit a fluid offensive team like the Steelers.
After a dismal first half, Washington came out strong on both ends of the field in both the third and fourth quarters of the game which eventually sealed the 23-17 victory for the team.
With a 5-7 record, the Washington Football Team inched closer to the top spot of the division as they now share the same win-loss tally as the New York Giants. A win in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers should help them in their bid for a last-gasp attempt to secure a playoff spot.
At the end of the day, getting to receive a shoutout from a solid Dallas Cowboys supporter like LeBron James should be clear evidence that Washington has already put everyone on notice indeed.
