Bridgestone Elite Performance Moment Of The Week: Regular Season Week 16

Posted Dec 26, 2017

Amari Cooper's second quarter touchdown is this week's Bridgestone Elite Performance Moment of the Week.

Poor Jalen Mills.

While the Philadelphia Eagles eventually got the win over the Oakland Raiders 19-10, the second-year cornerback got worked by Amari Cooper en route to No. 89’s sixth touchdown of 2017.

With 12:46 left in the second quarter, Cooper executed an absolutely filthy double move on Mills, and with all the separation in the world, hauled in a gorgeous, 63-yard touchdown pass from Derek Carr.

The second quarter score was not only the Silver and Black’s only offensive touchdown of the afternoon, but it brought them even with the Eagles, as well as infused a little much-needed energy into a brisk night at Lincoln Financial Field.

It’s no secret that the Carr-Cooper connection hasn’t been as potent as it was just a year ago, but that highlight reel play Monday afternoon showed just how dynamic the tandem can be when they’re operating on the same page.

When all was said and done, Cooper had hauled in three passes for a team-high 66 yards, and while those numbers might not necessarily light the world on fire, it was good to see “Coop” play some meaningful snaps once again.

While his touchdown ended up not being the difference in the game, it was still an outstanding play, and it is this week’s Elite Performance Moment of the Week, presented by Bridgestone.
