Nelson Agholor

Nelson Agholor had yet another costly drop for the Philadelphia Eagles, and his error led to plenty of memes, as you would expect.

Philly had a 4th-and-10 down 17-10 in the final minute against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

The catch would have been difficult, but it’s one Agholor could have made. It would have given the Eagles a chance to tie the game or take the lead, too.

Agholor has been the subject of past criticism — even from total strangers — over his drops. He’s also faced questions for his effort on a long bomb too.

That’s part of the reason why there were plenty of memes involving him:

Agholor had four catches for 40 yards on nine targets.
