Texas (AP) — Amari Cooper’s impact Antworten

ARLINGTON Youth Wendell Smallwood Jerseys ,on Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott has been dramatic.The new No. 1 receiver for the Cowboys shook up the NFC East race, too.Prescott threw his third touchdown pass to Cooper on the first possession of overtime, and the Cowboys took a big step toward the division title with a 29-23 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.On third down, Rasul Douglas tipped the pass into the air by getting inside the slant route, and Cooper grabbed it and had a clear path to the end zone from the Philadelphia 7 for the 15-yard score. The Cowboys used almost all of the 10-minute overtime, scoring with 1:55 remaining.“I knew I had the slant route there, but I knew he would sit on it,” Cooper said. “I tried to sell the fade. It didn’t really work, but I just stayed with the ball and there you have it.”By winning the third overtime game in the past four seasons at A&T Stadium between these division rivals, the Cowboys (8-5) won their fifth straight game and took a two-game lead over the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles (6-7) and Washington with three games left.Carson Wentz threw for three touchdowns, including a pair of tying scores in the fourth quarter. But he never got a chance in overtime because Prescott engineered a 13-play, 75-yard drive.Prescott overcame two interceptions and a lost fumble to set career highs in completions (42), attempts (54) and yards passing (455).“Helpless feeling Mack Hollins Jerseys Stitched ,” Wentz said. “I’ve got a lot of lot of confidence in the defense. They were making plays today. We just didn’t do enough early offensively and that cost us.”The Cowboys dominated almost from the start, but let the Eagles stay close to set up a wild fourth quarter. Dallas, which can clinch the NFC East title with a win at Indianapolis next Sunday, finished with 576 yards, the most since gaining 578 against the St. Louis Cardinals in 1973.Cooper finished with a career-high 217 yards receiving on 10 catches in his second game in the past three with at least 180 yards and two scores. All three of Cooper’s touchdowns — the others from 75 and 28 yards — were in the fourth quarter and overtime.Acquired from Oakland for a 2019 first-round draft pick seven games into the season, Cooper leads the NFL with 642 yards receiving since Week 9, his first game with the Cowboys. He had nine catches for 190 yards after halftime.The Cowboys went for it on fourth-and-1 from the Eagles 19 in overtime and got it with a 1-yard plunge from Ezekiel Elliott, who had 192 yards from scrimmage on 40 touches — 28 carries for 113 yards and 12 catches for 79.Cooper converted a pair of third downs on the winning drive. The first one was big, too — a 12-yarder on third-and-9 from the Philadelphia 40.“I was almost I guess I would say astonished that we were able to get that trade,” said Prescott, whose has seen a significant jump in completion percentage, yards per game and passer rating in six games with Cooper.“So I guess if you say that, when we’re getting a trade Rasul Douglas Jerseys Stitched , well, what’s wrong? And then to get him and see everything turning out and playing out the way it is, we’re very, very fortunate.”Brett Maher set a Dallas franchise record with a 62-yard field goal on the final play of the first half and had three field goals.The game went from a defensive struggle with missed Dallas opportunities that kept the Eagles close to a wild fourth-quarter shootout.Wentz thought he had answered the 75-yard touchdown to Cooper with 3:01 remaining with a matching 75-yarder to tight end Dallas Goedert.But Goedert was called for pass interference, apparently for pushing off against Jeff Heath before bouncing off a helmet-to-helmet hit from Xavier Woods that wasn’t called and running to the end zone from midfield.Philadelphia scored anyway, with Wentz leading a more methodical march to his third touchdown pass, a 6-yarder to Darren Sproles for a 23-23 tie with 1:39 to go in regulation.Douglas had the first interception of Prescott in the first half, but couldn’t get a second hand on the ball for the depleted Philadelphia secondary against Cooper with the game on the line.“I played it perfectly,” he said. “I couldn’t get the other hand in there to get the pick. I tried to bat it down.”DEJA VUTwo years ago, the Cowboys won by the same score with a touchdown on the first possession of overtime. Prescott was on his way to NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors, and Elliott went on to win the league rushing title as a rookie. The 12-play, 75-yard drive took 7:12 and was capped by Prescott’s 5-yard TD to now-retired tight end Jason Witten.LOPSIDED STATS, CLOSE GAMEThe Cowboys outgained the Eagles 576-256 and had twice as many first downs (32-16). Dallas ran 93 plays to 48 for Philadelphia and had the ball for 45:33 compared to 22:32 for the Eagles.“Give them credit for fighting and scratching and clawing and doing the things necessary to stay in the ballgame Youth Lane Johnson Jerseys ,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said.INJURIESCowboys RG Zack Martin left in the second half with a knee injury. The four-time Pro Bowler has been battling a knee issue all season. … Philadelphia RB Corey Clement injured his right knee when he was stopped for a 4-yard loss late in the first quarter and didn’t return. … Eagles defensive end Josh Sweat left in the first half with an ankle injury and didn’t return.UP NEXTEagles: At LA Rams next Sunday.Cowboys: At Indianapolis next Sunday.

In order to learn more about this guy, I reached out to SB Nation’s Stanford blog: Rule Of Tree. Cardinal writer Jack Blanchat (@jackblanchat) was kind enough to answer my questions.1) Let’s start with the most important question: how do we refer to guy when it comes to a nickname? JJ? JJAW? Cuervo? Some Eagles fans have suggested “Sega.”Really need some help here.The one that seemed to stick with the Stanford faithful was JAWS, but there was also a little traction for Arcegatron, which I enjoy a lot. Apparently his Stanford teammates called him Spider, which seems apt too.[BLG Note: Here’s a look at our nickname poll results from earlier this week.]2) Can you sum up what his college career was like?JJ’s breakout moment was a game-winning touchdown catch with 24 seconds left to beat Josh Rosen’s UCLA team. In an ugly game, he ripped the ball out of the sky and put quite an exclamation point on that game. I think it occurred to me at some point last year that he was the best receiver Stanford has had at least since Doug Baldwin, and he was a more polished player coming out of college than Doug was (although I will qualify that by saying they are very different players who excel in different ways). He never seemed to dominate games as a junior, but always made great plays, and this year, he took that next leap. He was just too big, too strong, and his hands were too secure for college DBs to stop. 3) What are his strengths?JJ puts DBs on posters. The tape really does the talking: JJ wins down the field Lane Johnson Jerseys Stitched , on jump balls, in single coverage, and in the red zone. He’s not super fast, but fast enough to be a problem, because he has a huge frame and a massive catch radius. He has really strong hands, so just give him a chance to catch the ball and he’ll pull it down. I think Stanford sometimes forgot that he was a solid route runner and turned to him too much as a jump-ball guy, but he never let the team down when they needed him to come up with a big catch. He also is really poised, mature and easygoing, and his Stanford teammates clearly enjoyed playing with him. He’s soft-spoken and lets his big play stand for itself. He reminds me a lot of Zach Ertz, who has obviously been a great fit in Philly.4) What are his weaknesses?I don’t know that he has the speed to run away from NFL DBs, and technically, he’s probably not the sharpest route-runner, but I don’t know that it matters a lot because of where he wins on the field. If a coach is taking a guy with his skill sets and making him run crossing routes Youth Paul Worrilow Jerseys , that’s kind of a problem. 5) Are you surprised where he was drafted? Higher or lower than expected? Just right?I think this is just about right. He does what he does, he does it well, and I don’t know that he has the athletic profile that teams fall in love over, so mid-2nd round seems right for a guy with his impressive resume.6) How do you see his NFL career playing out?JJ has all the talent needed to be a powerful red-zone threat for years to come. I think he’s ready to be a starter for the Eagles, because he has a little bit of that Zach Ertz-like game, where he can be counted on to catch the ball on big downs, and he’s just a problem to handle in the endzone. Not sure what his career arc past five years or so will look like, but he’s got the work ethic to refine his game for whatever comes. 7) Anything to know about him off the field? He’s a super interesting guy with a great backstory - his family is filled with incredible athletes. I’m just going to copy-paste from his Stanford profile page:Highlights:Film reviews:Spider graph:Relative athletic score:RELATED READINGS:Stop worrying about JJ Arcega-Whiteside’s fit with the EaglesEagles Film Room: Grading JJ Arcega-Whiteside
