“I didn’t know we were going to get all that, honestly,” the running back said after Cooper caught the winning touchdown pass in 29-23 overtime victory for the Dallas Cowboys over the Philadelphia Eagles. “But when I finally saw him in person, when I saw him catch the ball, I saw him run around and run after the catch, that’s when I really realized he’s truly special. You guys saw that [Sunday]. He took over that game at the end when we needed him. I'm glad to have that guy on the same side as me.”

Cooper finished with 10 receptions for 217 yards and three touchdowns in his sixth game with the Cowboys. They are 5-1 since he came to town from the Oakland Raiders. With the win against the Eagles, they are one win away from clinching the NFC East and making the playoffs for the second time in three seasons.4

Cooper has 40 receptions for 642 yards and six scores since the Cowboys gave up a 2019 first-rounder to get him. With three games to play, he has a chance to have 1,000 receiving yards in nine games with the Cowboys.

Over a 16-game schedule, Cooper’s numbers project to 107 catches, 1,712 yards and 16 touchdowns.

“When I thought of playing in the NFL as a youth, this is the perfect example of that,” Cooper said of his performance against Philadelphia. “For everything from the city, the facilities, winning, watching that defense out there, watching that offense out here, it’s a dream come true.”china nike nfl jerseys cheap
