OAKLAND — Amari Cooper became the first Raiders receiver in 10 years to top the 1,000-yard mark during Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.
Cooper caught a 41-yard pass during the third quarter to scoot past the 1,000-yard mark. Randy Moss was the last to do it in 2005.
That catch gave him 1,008 yards on the season and he capped that same drive with a 26-yard touchdown reception, his second touchdown catch of the game. This is the first multi-touchdown game of Cooper’s rookie season.
The second touchdown also gave the Raiders a 20-17 lead with 6:48 left in the third quarter. That gave Cooper five catches for 114 yards, his fifth 100-yard game of his career.
