Nelson Agholor and the Raiders lost to the Bills on Sunday afternoon, but the much-maligned former Eagles wideout had another solid day in his first year since leaving Philadelphia.
Agholor caught four passes for 44 yards and a touchdown on four targets, bringing his season totals to eight catches on nine targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns.
His TD catch on Sunday was a pretty slick contested grab:
Agholor already having two touchdowns this season is painful, for two reasons.
For one, he caught just three touchdowns in 11 games last year, and just four in 16 games the season before. Where was this, Nelson?!
And, more painfully, he now has more receiving touchdowns this season than the entire Eagles wide receiver corps - at least, before SNF:

Agholor's numbers through four games aren't exactly eye-popping - they track to 32 catches for 472 yards and eight touchdowns over a full season - but his contributions would certainly be welcome on an Eagles team starved for wide receiver talent.
Just look at the Eagles' four wide receivers in their Sunday Night Football matchup with the 49ers:

Greg Ward: 42
Deontay Burnett: 15
John Hightower: 3
Travis Fulgham: 0
One more painful note: Nelson Agholor now has more touchdown catches in his brief post-Eagles career (four games) than second-round draft pick J.J. Arcega-Whiteside has in his 19-game Eagles career. Agholor leads, 2-1.
You hate to see it.
