ARLINGTON, Texas – Something about the Washington Football Team for Thanksgiving seems to align with Dallas Cowboys recipient Amari Cooper.
In two games on vacation against the NFC East opponent, he has three touchdown catches.
Cooper took a 54-yard touchdown catch from Andy Dalton at 14:08 in the second quarter, executed by cornerback Ronald Darby for the third time this season, to give the Cowboys a 10-7 lead.
For a team that struggled to make big games and get to the end zone without quarterback Dak Prescott, the Cowboys have scored five touchdowns in two games on their last 13 trips.
