GIF: Riley Cooper's amazing one-handed catch

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper made the catch of the first half when he went up way high for a Nick Foles ball and managed to wrangle it in with one hand. But the highlight reel play didn't end there as Cooper put on a spin move that Shady McCoy would be proud of to make a Cardinals' defender miss after the catch.

The Eagles lead the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 17-7 at the end of the first half.
