Amari Cooper, like Khalil Mack, wins division title after Raiders trade


Good things apparently come to those that get traded by the Raiders.

Last weekend, edge rusher Khalil Mack and the Bears won the NFC North.

On Sunday, wide receiver Amari Cooper and the Cowboys wrapped up the NFC East crown with a 27-20 win over Tampa Bay.

Both former first-round picks were traded by the Raiders this season. Mack went to Chicago in a trade just before the start of the season. Cooper was dealt to Dallas following Week 7.

The move from Oakland to Dallas seemed to perk Cooper up. Before the deal, Cooper caught 22 passes for 280 yards in six games. But, since joining the Cowboys, Cooper has caught 48 passes for 694 yards in eight games.

For Mack and Cooper, the best revenge against the Raiders is to help your new team win games, thus hurting the draft picks sent back to Oakland.
