Raiders second year receiver Amari Cooper came into tonight’s game needing 19 yards to reach 1000 yards on the season. In the second quarter he caught his fourth pass of the game for 9 yards and surpassed 1000 yards on the season.
He reaches the mark a game earlier than he did last season as a rookie, when he finished with 1070 yards on the season.
In so doing, he becomes the first Raiders receiver to go over 1000 yards in back-to-back seasons since Jerry Rice did it in 2002.
He’s also the first player in franchise history to go over 1000 yards in each of his first two seasons.
