Amari Cooper with 90-yard TD for Dallas Cowboys

WATCH: Amari Cooper with 90-yard TD for Dallas Cowboys

He completed 66.7 percent of his throws for 348 yards, two scores and an interception in three 2018 preseason appearances.

At midseason, Dallas was staggering with a bleak 3-5 won-lost tally, but owner Jerry Jones struck a deal with the Oakland Raiders, swapping his 2019 number one draft selection for 24-year-old wide receiver Amari Cooper at the trade deadline. Teams in Chicago, New Orleans and Los Angeles might start casting a anxious eye toward Big D. The main concern for Dallas head coach Jason Garrett and his assistants could be the disturbingly long list of their players with injuries of varying severity.

Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams was hospitalized overnight in Dallas after suffering a chest injury in Thursday's 32-23 loss to the Cowboys. It's been a long time since a Cowboys receiver could punish a cornerback that slips in coverage quite like Cooper did to match the Redskins go-ahead touchdown.

On the 90-yarder, Cooper made the catch just outside the Dallas 30, spun out of the arms of Fabian Moreau and won the race to the pylon against former Alabama teammate Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who tried to shove him out of bounds around the 5.

Dallas and Washington are now both tied at 6-5 atop the NFC East, and at this point it's still anyone's division.

"I've been putting in extra time with my coaches, with Dak", Cooper said.

After scoring on a scrambling 5-yard run for the third Dallas touchdown in less than eight minutes and a 31-13 lead, Prescott let Elliott help him into another kettle on the other end of the field, drawing the same unsportsmanlike conduct penalty Elliott did two years ago. "For some reason, since I've been here, the chemistry with Dak has phenomenal". The highlight was a 90-yard score that set the mark for the longest pass play in the National Football League this season. "We just said to hell with it". They have a lot of momentum going into this game, winning their last two on the road, when no one really expected them to do so.

"I felt like he did a great job", Redskins running back Adrian Peterson said. We lost the game on defense two weeks in a row. They'll need it when New Orleans visits with a 10-win run Thursday.
