Redskins giving out 'You Like That?!' rally towels

The Washington Redskins want fans to embrace the "You Like That?!" revolution.

The team will hand out towels to fans emblazoned with the phrase prior to Sunday's playoff game versus the Green Bay Packers.

While the phrase that quarterback Kirk Cousins spontaneously screamed after leading the largest comeback in team history versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7 has become a merchandise mover, that game marked a notable demarcation in the Redskins' season, especially for the quarterback.

Washington finished 7-3 in the final 10 games, including four straight wins to close the season.

Cousins threw 24 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions in his career prior to the "You Like That!" game. Including that game and ever since, Cousins has thrown 23 TDs and just 3 INTs. The fourth-year pro not only led the NFL in completion percentage this season at 69.8, in the final eight games of the season he led the NFL with a 126.1 passer rating -- the third-highest passer rating for any player in the final eight games of a 16-game season (since 1978), behind only Tom Brady's 2010 MVP year (128.2) and Nick Foles in 2013 (126.3).

Cousins set a Redskins single-season passing yards record with 4,166 yards, earned seven 300-yard games this season (Redskins franchise record), tied for the second-most TD passes by any Redskins QB in a season (29) and was one of two quarterbacks to throw a touchdown pass in every game this season (Russell Wilson).

Facing a Packers team that stumbled into the postseason, Redskins fans hope to be waving their towels screaming "You Like THAT?!!!!!!" while Cousins tosses them into the Divisional round.
