Re-Watch Redskins-Buccaneers For An Early Morning Christmas Gift


If you have kids, you know you're going to be up at the crack of dawn on Christmas morning, groggily heading downstairs to put on the coffee as the unwrapping commences.

But, besides the opening of gifts, you'll have some extra motivation to get up early – maybe even before the kids – on Dec. 25. Trust me, you'll like that.

Those words are not written in order to needlessly perpetuate quarterback Kirk Cousins' signature phrase.

They're written because the NFL Network is re-airing the Redskins' incredible come from behind, 31-30 victory over the Buccaneers from late October, the must-win game before the Bye Week, the Homecoming Weekend game, the game that Cousins drove his team down the field in the final minute and then unknowingly started a tidal wave of vines and memes when he burst out "You Like That!?" walking into the locker room.

Yes, the condensed version of that defining day is being re-aired at 7 a.m. on Christmas, the ninth best game of 2015 as voted on by fans, who were given a list of 24 to choose from through Week 15 (you can see the whole schedule here).

It was the Redskins' biggest comeback in franchise history, erasing a 24-0 second-quarter deficit to defeat the Bucs.

On three occasions – as recently as 1999 – the Redskins had come back from a 21-point deficit to win, but they had never, in their 83-year history, done anything like they did that Sunday.

"It's huge," Gruden said after the game. "To come back and battle back to give (the alums) something to cheer about on their alumni weekend is an awesome feeling."

"You don't want to sit on a loss in a Bye Week, that's always tough," Cousins said after the game. "It was a step in the right direction. We're going to need a lot more than three wins this year, but it was a good step and we just have to keep learning and keep growing. There were certainly a number of plays that we want to learn from and improve upon. We just have to keep playing, but certainly feel good about this win."
