Watch: Raiders Amari Cooper with vicious double move for 63-yard touchdown

NFL: Preseason-Oakland Raiders at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Amari Cooper had played just 15 snaps the past three weeks since receiving a concussion and injuring his ankle on a hit against the Broncos in week 12. When he returned two weeks ago, he didn’t look right and was quickly knocked out of the game after aggravating his ankle injury.

Even with the Raiders having nothing to play for, facing a tough Eagles team in Philadelphia, Coop was active. And early in the second quarter, he showed he’s got some moves.

Coop came off the line, put double move on Eagles’ cornerback Jalen Mills, who bit on the fake, while Coop went up field, freeing himself to break wide open. Derek Carr saw the move and threw for Coop who made the easy catch with nothing but open field in front of him for a 63-yard touchdown.

Take a look:

The touchdown tied the game at 7-7 with over 12 minutes left in the second quarter.

It’s the longest catch of the season for Amari Cooper. Outside of his 210-yard game against the Chiefs in week 7, 63 yards is more than his total yards in any other single game this season.
