When Washington scored the go-ahead touchdown with 1:05 remaining on the clock, Matthew Stafford was busy on the sideline preparing for the game-winning drive. With plenty of time and three timeouts at his disposal, Stafford needed to go 75 yards in just over a minute. For anyone who has watched Stafford over his first 100 career games, this was a common scenario, and one in which Stafford has excelled in the past.
No one decided to tell Fox Sports personality Skip Bayless this. Because after Washington scored, this was his reaction:
Kirk Cousins just pulled off another YOU LIKE THAT? Redskins rally from 13-3 down mid-4th to win in Detroit. Skins win. I'm impressed.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) October 23, 2016
The key words in that tweet is “to win in Detroit.” Of course, we all know now that Stafford went on a tear in the final drive to make his own “YOU LIKE THAT” moment and put the game away for good.
Of course, in Skip Bayless fashion, he tried desperately to recover from his gaffe and pretend he knew that would happen all along.
Kirk Cousins' heroics cancelled by Matt Stafford. My prediction barely holds up: Skins lose. I had 'em losing 6 of next 7, starting w/ Det.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) October 23, 2016
Okay, Skip. Maybe step away from the computer for a minute.
