ARLINGTON, Texas – Something about watching a football team in Washington on Thanksgiving seems to agree with Dallas Cowboys recipient Amari Cooper.
In two games of the holiday against the opponent of NFC East, he has three interceptions.
Cooper pulled the 54-yard catch from Andy Dalton with 14:08 in the second quarter, played by cornerback Ronald Darby for his third result of the season to give the Cowboys a 10-7 lead.
For a team struggling to make big plays and enter the final zone without quarterback Duck Prescott, the Cowboys have scored five touchdowns in their last 13 discs in two games.

With 89 yards earned for two quarters, Cooper closes his third 100-yard game of the season and first after week 4. In a 31-23 win against Washington in 2018, Cooper caught eight passes for 180 yards and touchdowns of 40 and 90 yards.
