Cowboys’ Amari Cooper Motivated to Prove Cowboys Right

WATCH: Amari Cooper with 90-yard TD for Dallas Cowboys

As folks were sitting down to seconds, or possibly third servings on Thanksgiving, the Dallas Cowboys were busy taking over first place in the NFC East.

Cowboys players, coaches and fans were praising Amari Cooper after his big game in a 31-23 win against the Redskins on Thanksgiving. Teams in Chicago, New Orleans and Los Angeles might start casting a anxious eye toward Big D. The main concern for Dallas head coach Jason Garrett and his assistants could be the disturbingly long list of their players with injuries of varying severity.

Washington, at 6-4, with the Cowboys just a game back, at 5-5. The Redskins beat the Cowboys 20-17 at home back in Week 7 but to get the season sweep they will have to do so without quarterback Alex Smith, who broke two bones in his right leg in the third quarter of Sunday's loss to Houston. Cooper has 22 catches (32 targets) for 349 yards and 3 touchdowns through four games in Dallas.

The Saints (10-1) will be trying to match exactly what Dallas did when Prescott was the 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and Elliott the league rushing champion: win 11 in a row after losing the opener.

John Lewis Christmas advert stars Broadstairs boy Hudson Trindall as Elton John
This year department store rival Debenhams was criticised for releasing a Christmas advert similar to John Lewis's 2017 offering. The Christmas season doesn't really kick off in the United Kingdom until the annual John Lewis Christmas commercial is unveiled.

Lost in the excitement of his long touchdowns are the four other receptions from Amari Cooper that kept Cowboys drives alive on third down.

"I don't want to prove the Raiders wrong", Cooper said, according to Mike Fisher of 247Sports. The former No. 5 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft owns a career quarterback rating of 73.9, while completing 56.7 percent of his throws for 15,219 yards, 86 touchdowns and 86 interceptions in 77 career games. "For some reason, since I've been here, the chemistry with Dak has phenomenal".

"Just so proud of the way he's handled this", Prescott said. The team gave him the game ball.

Adrian Peterson is running the football well for the Redskins, he's going to need to play a big role here in this one. They'll have the benefit of the "mini-bye" on their side, having played on Thursday, so we'll see how they respond in their Monday night showdown with the Eagles in Week 13. The two have already shown that they are capable of providing that much-needed stability in that unit of the defense.
