Amari Cooper Shines Bright On Monday Night Football
Former Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper showed out Monday night for the Cleveland Browns in a must win game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Cooper finished the game with five catches for 131 yards and one touchdown as the Browns blew out the Bengals 32-13 who were missing star receiver Ja'marr Chase with a hip injury and is expected to miss four to six weeks.
The Miami native has been the go-to guy for the Browns this season. Cooper is on track to make his fifth Pro Bowl as he leads the team in receptions with 39, yards with 553 and touchdowns with five.
Cleveland improves to 3-5 on the year and snaps a four game losing streak on the year. The Browns are hopeful they can reach the postseason when Pro Bowl quarterback Deshaun Watson returns from suspension on Dec 4 against the Texans.
The one downside to Cooper's night was when he got the rare opportunity to complete a pass but instead threw an interception late in the first quarter.
"It was an abomination... it was was terrible. Don't have me throwing too many more passes," Cooper said regarding his interception after the game.
Cleveland is on a bye this week but will have its hands full on Nov 13 when they take on Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
