From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 27): The Eagles are airing it out, so Cooper has big play upside every week, even though he is in the shadow of Jeremy Maclin.

Week 9: at Houston Texans

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Nick Foles bombed the Cardinals for 36/62 yielding 411 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions last week (he's thrown two TDs per game over the past three contests, but almost as many interceptions per game with 81/133 for 866 yards passing, six TDs and five interceptions over the three game span). Three players have seen over five targets and also caught TDs from Foles in that three game window: Jeremy Maclin (30 targets for 19/279/3 receiving), Zach Ertz (19 for 11/134/1), and Riley Cooper (21 for 14/180/1). Jordan Matthews has also been heavily involved (24 targets for 14/132/0 receiving). Maclin is clearly the wide receiver to own out of this convocation of Eagles. The Houston pass D is ranked 28th in the NFL allowing 271.4 net passing yards per game, with 15 pass TDs given up vs. seven interceptions and 15 sacks generated to date (tied for 13th and 18th in the NFL, respectively). Rookie Zach Mettenberger threw 27/41 for 290 yards, two TDs and one interception (with two sacks taken for -9 yards) vs. Houston last week, while Pittsburgh posted 24/34 for 252 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions vs. Houston two weeks back (three sacks taken for -16 yards). This is a great matchup for Foles (and Maclin, by extension).

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs NYG (7 / 5 / 59 / 0 rec)

Cooper picked up the Eagles first 1st down on the night with an 11 yard grab showing off some quick hands as he snagged the ball out of the air. Cooper found a way to get wide open over the middle of the field for a 14 yard first down catch to help the Eagles continue to move the ball on their first touchdown drive. Cooper caught his next pass on a quick pass over the middle for a modest 6 yard gain. Cooper made a nice 15 yard grab and then followed it up with a 13 yard grab to move the ball to the Giants 29 yard line right before half time to get the Eagles into field goal range.

2014 Week 8 vs ARI (9 / 5 / 88 / 0 rec)

Cooper had a big bang with his first reception of the game making a diving grab near the sidelines for a huge 50 yard gain. He never gave up on the play and kept running to make sure Foles eventually had some where to throw downfield. Cooper had a short 3 yard catch with time winding down in he 1st half. Cooper had a 9 yard gain where he was hit hard out of bounds right before he could pick up a first down. Cooper caught a 4 yard grab and could find very little room after the catch. Cooper had a very nice 22 yard gain over the middle of the field.
