After a quiet past few weeks, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper broke free against the Carolina Panthers. Cooper burned new Panthers corner C.J. Henderson for a 35-yard touchdown hookup with Dak Prescott, and it proved to be a vital score in Dallas' 36-28 win.

Behind-the-scenes gameday video has revealed Cooper's reaction after the play, and it's hilarious.

Cooper first did his best Keke Palmer impression, saying he had no idea who Henderson even was. Then a quick rejog of his memory reminded him that Henderson went to a high school in his area, and he actually did know who he just beat.

You can't blame Cooper for his momentary lapse. Henderson was just traded to Carolina less than two weeks ago from the Jacksonville Jaguars, so it's possible the wideout had forgotten he was now a Panther.

Cooper's 35-yard TD was part of a 3-catch, 69-yard day in the Cowboys' win. He only had 50 yards combined in Weeks 2 and 3, so hopefully he's back on an upward trend.

Dallas heads into its Week 5 matchup against the New York Giants as 7-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
