Amari Cooper is having a heck of a day for the Oakland Raiders.
Earlier in the day, he hauled in a touchdown pass from Derek Carr to give the Raiders a third-quarter lead over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Then with the Raiders trailing and needing a touchdown to tie, Carr looked to Cooper again.
And the former Alabama product delivered. This time he beat former Florida cornerback and Tampa Bay first-round pick Vernon Hargreaves for a 31-yard gain. That set up a Mychal Rivera 7-yard TD reception four plays later.

Cooper has a history of dominating Hargreaves. When the two matched up in college in 2014, Cooper hauled in 10 passes for 201 yards and 3 touchdowns. Alabama won that game 42-21.
Oakland ended up scoring a touchdown on the drive and the game went into overtime. At the end of regulation, Cooper had 10 catches for 149 yards and the touchdown.
