Nelson Agholor's first career NFL touchdown came at a great time for the Eagles. The Birds were in a bad spot after Jason Peters had to leave the game for a few snaps and Dennis Kelly committed two straight holding penalties. The game was tied and Philadelphia was facing 2nd and 26 at their own 47-yard line. And then just like that, Sam Bradford made a real good deep throw to his rookie pass catcher. Agholor burned Buffalo's coverage to get open for an easy score.

"The Linc’s rocking, everybody was going crazy, I fed off of that emotion," Agholor said. "It was fun. And that’s what it’s supposed to be like. This is the highest level of football. There’s some great fans and great players on my team, and it meant a lot to score a touchdown in the situation I did and for my teammates. The series, we got pushed back a little bit and when we needed to make the play, we did."

Agholor told reporters he might give his first touchdown ball to his mom as a Christmas gift.
