The Dallas Cowboys have not lost since November 5, 2018. Yes, the NFC East leading Cowboys have won five straight and it doesn’t take a football genius to figure out why that is. His name rhymes with Acari Mooper.
When it’s all said and done Amari Cooper may be one of the best mid-season trades in not just Dallas Cowboys history, but NFL history. Since joining the squad, Cooper has 40 catches for 642 yards and 6 TDs – he leads the NFL in receiving yards during that six-game stretch.
And yesterday he once again proved he was well worth a first round pick. He didn’t have one, nor two, but three touchdown receptions – one of which won the game against the Eagles in overtime.
Naturally, Twitter exploded:

“This is not some type of hot streak: Amari Cooper is a Pro Bowl player, he should be a perennial Pro Bowler. You give me 3 receivers in the NFL that run better routes than Amari Cooper.” — @criscarter80 pic.twitter.com/nrZhuzNsEc

Amari Cooper has been worth TWO first-round picks.

I’ve always believed the trade I made for Tony Dorsett was one of the greatest trades in NFL history. At the risk of being too reactive the trade Jerry Jones made for Amari Cooper could end up being right up there. I loved it for Dallas when it happened, it looks even better now.

It’s safe to say that after five straight wins the players are pretty stoked. Especially the defense which looks better than it has in years. Hot Boyz for life:
