Amari Cooper has enjoyed sharing the field with Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.
The 24-year-old wide receiver has caught 11 passes for 133 yards and a touchdown since he was acquired by Dallas from the Raiders in exchange for a first-round pick late last month. Cooper discussed playing with Prescott after the Cowboys’ 27-20 Week 10 win over the Eagles.
“He’s resilient,” Cooper said (via the Dallas Morning News). “He never gets down on himself, never gets down on the team. He’s always believing that we can go out there and overcome any circumstance.
“And you need that. Especially in a quarterback. That’s something I really admire.”
Prescott has struggled at times this season. But he threw for 270 yards and registered two total scores in the victory over Philadelphia. He has completed 64.1 percent of his passes and thrown 11 touchdowns, along with five interceptions, in nine games in 2018.
The win moved the Cowboys into second place of the NFC East with a 4-5 record. The Redskins lead the division at 6-3.
