Washington Redskins PR man embarrasses the team on national TV

The Washington Redskins got a big win on Monday night as they became only the second team this season to defeat Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys.

For the first time since week one of the season, the Cowboys fell to a defeat but the Redskins needed an overtime field goal to seal the deal.

They clinched an impressive 20-17 victory at the AT&T Stadium with backup Quarterback Colt McCoy shining on his return to Texas.

The Texas native was the star on the night and he was also the source of the story that lit Twitter up after the game was over.

As the game was broadcast on ESPN, McCoy and Redskins coach Jay Gruden gave a post-match interview but what happened next was shocking.


After the two hugged it out, McCoy was turned round into what seemed to be yet another interview until there was an interesting interception.

A Redskins PR representative was quick to act and turned McCoy away before the reporter could seemingly ask any questions.

What sparked the trend on Twitter however was that the Redskins representative turned around and shouted "no means no" to the reporter.

The phrase began trending across America as the jokes also emerged about the Redskins man being hired for several situations where no would be appropriate.

Revolutionary game for Washington

Following tonight's win, the Redskins moved to 3-5 and are now on a two game winning streak backing up their win last week over the Tennessee Titans.

Prior to the Tennessee game, the Redskins lost four in a row including losses to the Seattle Seahawks and in form teams Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles.

So a trip to the previously joint top of the NFL Dallas Cowboys would not have been an attractive prospect for the Redskins.

Colt McCoy got his first start in the NFL since 2011 and he did not disappoint throwing for 299 yards and one touchdown.

The Redskins also impressed towards the end of the game as their defensive performance made it very tough for the Cowboys by sending all out blitz plays their way.

That defensive toughness forced the stop at the end of the fourth quarter and also secured the win in overtime.
