How Former Eagles Fared in Week 9

With no Eagles stats to look at this past week due to their bye week, we are going to check in on some former Eagles across the NFL. Here's a look at three former Eagles and how they impacted their teams in Week 9:

Mack Hollins

Hollins took the field this week for Miami Dolphins to fill in for Preston Williams, who was dealing with a foot injury. He was predicted to be the savior of the Dolphins or be their version of Travis Fulgham, but he was able to take advantage of his opportunity. Hollins only saw one target this week, but he recorded an 11-yard touchdown reception on that lone target. It was just his second career touchdown reception, the first coming with the Eagles back in 2017. It is unclear whether Hollins will get more opportunities from this result, but he can at least say he contributed to the Dolphins' victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Jordan Howard

Sticking with the same matchup this week, another former Eagle saw some snaps on the Dolphins offense. Due to running back injuries in Miami, Jordan Howard had more rushing attempts this week than any prior week this season; it was the first time Howard had double-digit rush attempts. He finished the game with 10 attempts for 19 yards and a touchdown. That stat line isn't all the impressive, but Howard still may see more opportunities in the coming weeks due to the injuries on the running back depth chart.

Nelson Agholor

Agholor has been an interesting topic of conversation in recent weeks. We remember him for his shortcomings in Philadelphia, but playing for the Las Vegas Raiders this season may have rejuvenated his career. He is not heavily targeted each week, but he has been able to capitalize on his opportunities. He was only targeted three times this week but finished the game with two receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown. Agholor has proved that he can be relied upon and should be featured more in the Raiders offense in the second half of the season.
