Rookie Silas Redd played sparingly in the Washington Redskins’ 20-17 overtime victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

But the former USC tailback has gone viral.

Redd was photographed during a postgame celebration doing a flip over the Cowboys’ star logo on the 50-yard line.

Redd responded to a fan on Twitter about the photo and said, “I just had to!”

Redd rushed for five yards in his only a carry.
