After a three-game lull,
Matthews broke loose for a 44-yard score in the first quarter, his eighth touchdown this year. He finished the season with 67 catches for 872 yards.
The Eagles are 3-point underdogs against the Giants Sunday.
For as productive as
Cooper entered the game with just one touchdown all season, and he hadn't topped 50 yards since Week 8 at Arizona. Matthews, a rookie, had seemingly overtaken him in the pecking order, but now Matthews has averaged just 33.0 receiving yards in his last four games.
The bigger upset for Cooper in Week 16 was outperforming Maclin, who had four catches for 62 yards. Maclin had only one fewer target than Cooper, though, and still finished with more yardage, so you have little reason to believe Cooper is now the preferred option. He and Matthews may be 2A and 2B, though, which makes both hard to trust Week 17 at the Giants.
