Kirk Cousins led the Washington Redskins to a big 42-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football. The 28-year-old quarterback was terrific on the night, completing 21 of 30 passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns, while throwing no interceptions. On the season, he’s thrown for 17 touchdowns, seven interceptions, and a rock-solid 98.9 passer rating.
In addition to getting it done at the quarterback position, we know that Cousins is an intense dude that has been known to yell things in front of the camera. Who could forget the great “YOU LIKE THAT?” moment from last season (heck, it sparked a corn maze creation):
So, consider all that, and it’s hardly a surprise that Cousins had another hilarious moment of yelling after Sunday night’s game. And it was to Washington general manager Scot McCloughan!
“HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW? HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW?”
Maybe even funnier is McCloughan’s calm reaction to this screaming: “I appreciate ya. That’s good stuff, man.”
ESPN’s Jeff Darlington asked Cousins about the “How you like me now?!” moment:
I asked Cousins about screaming "how do you like me now" at McCloughan: "I constantly want to prove myself, and I think tonight was a step."

Cousins is playing this season under the franchise tag ($19.95 million), and he’s certainly hoping McCloughan will give him a long term contract offer this offseason. If Cousins keeps up his great play, it would seem likely that the two sides will work out a deal to keep Cousins in DC for several more years. But if McCloughan refuses to make such an offer, I really hope some cameras are around to capture what Cousins would yell in that moment.
