screen-shot-2016-10-05-at-3-27-45-pm-1-4-e1476984171410-650x379After facing a 10 point deficit midway through the fourth quarter, the Washington Redskins staged a furious late rally to take a 17-13 lead over the Detroit Lions.

Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins ran the ball 15 yards into the end zone for the score to put the Redskins on top.

Skip Bayless was excited. So excited that he tweeted this:

Fans on Twitter jumped all over the Fox Sports hot taker after the Lions won:
