Kirk Cousins explains 'How you like me now?' celebration

In just four days, Kirk Cousins's latest post-victory primal scream - this time he rubbed the hair-challenged dome of general manager Scot McCloughan and yelled, "How do you like me now?" - may be read with a different inflection.

"The one to Pierre was a 70-yard touchdown".

I guess someone forgot to tell the Washington Redskins that Thanksgiving is on Thursday and not Sunday. "He's always been able to knife the ball through the wind, really".

As good as the Cowboys have been, the Redskins have played almost as well since that Week 2 matchup.

After four straight losses, all of which included the opponent scoring 30-plus points, things are dire for the Green Bay Packers.

"The biggest hole in our football team is our turnover ratio", McCarthy said. "Go in there and try and get that win going". Plus it was less than a yard, and we have a very big center, a big left guard and a big right guard and two mammoth tackles. "We're in a rough stretch right now". While he eventually got going and wound up 26 of 41 for 351 yards with three TDs and no picks, Rodgers lamented that poor beginning.

Later, once Rodgers & Co. got going, tight end Jared Cook fumbled away the ball after a catch.

It was the Redskins coach, though, who put his neck on the line the most, calling for a daring fourth-and-1 quarterback sneak in Washington's own territory.

In fairness, Green Bay's defense is all kinds of banged up, as is their corps of running backs, and the list of injuries lengthened in Washington to include linebacker Blake Martinez (knee), safety Kentrell Brice (back) and cornerback Demetri Goodson (knee).

Rob Kelley, who goes by "Fat Rob", had only 17 carries for 103 yards in the first eight games. "When we watched the film, we felt like there were plays to be made that didn't get made".

Another time, on a third-and-5 in the third quarter, Cousins climbed the pocket under pressure.

QUICK-STRIKE OFFENSE: While the offenses were on ice early in the night, they combined for two touchdowns in the first 35 seconds of the fourth quarter. There's an element of boom or bust with Matthews, as he's had 40 yards receiving or less in six of his eleven games. That is what Washington needs to accomplish on defense if they want to stop the Cowboys this week. They rank 23rd overall in total defense on the year, sitting at 19th against the pass and 23rd against the run.

Can the Redskins (6-3-1) become road warriors?

It was Cousins' 17th career 300-yard day, including the postseason, setting a team record.

The Washington Redskins quarterback has been known to celebrate wins rather exuberantly, becoming famous for shouting that three-word phrase after an October 2015 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If the Redskins pass rush doesn't take over the D struggles.

On third-and-goal from the 13, Rodgers found Jordy Nelson in the back of the end zone, giving Nelson his ninth touchdown catch. Sunday, he ran for more than 100 yards in a game for the first time since high school. Facing a strong wind, the Redskins tried for a two-point conversion but failed.
