Coldplay offers up Redskins fight song on D.C. show

It's unclear if Kirk Cousins got his wish to attend Sunday night's Coldplay concert at FedEx Field. If so, he was treated to a Redskins shoutout by singer Chris Martin.

During a solo acoustic interlude during the band's sold out show, Martin launched into a seemingly improvised version of an NFL fight song shot the through the prism of a sensitive aughts rock hero.

"One more for your football team. We're going to change gears," Martin began. "This is going to give you good luck for your football team."

A tighter shot of the performance, for the ladies. Fast forward to around the three-minute mark if you don't own a copy of A Rush Of Blood To The Head.

The excellent DC Sports Bog noted that Martin wished Tom Brady a happy 40th birthday during Coldplay's Gillette Stadium tour stop on Friday night. The band will hit six more NFL stadium sites on this current leg of their world tour.

We'll keep you in the loop if Martin has more football ditties up his sleeve.
