Cowboys vs. Titans: Score, highlights, live updates from Amari Cooper’s Dallas debut
In shipping a 2019 first-round pick to Oakland for receiver Amari Cooper, the Dallas Cowboys demonstrated belief in their own playoff hopes, despite a 3-4 record.
For a late-season run to come together, Dallas likely needs a win Monday against the Tennessee Titans. Cooper, who at 24 already has two 1,000 yard seasons under his belt, could help with that.
A victory would put the Cowboys one game back in the NFC East with eight games to play.
A loss would send them into the most difficult part of their schedule two games behind the division-leading Redskins.

The Titans, meanwhile, have lost three games in a row and done very little on offense over that span. Their third-worst passing offense is desperate for struggling quarterback Marcus Mariota (three touchdowns, five interceptions this year) to show up against Dallas.
Sporting News will provide updates throughout the game.
