Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Jordy Nelson has found the end zone for the first time as a member of the Oakland Raiders.

He and Derek Carr connected on a 12-yard touchdown pass to give the Raiders an early 7-0 lead on the Miami Dolphins.

The touchdown capped of a four-play, 75-yard drive for the Raiders. Nelson was the star for Oakland on the drive.

In addition to he made the drive’s biggest play. On just the second play from scrimmage, Nelson and Derek Carr connected on a 61-yard pass to set the Raiders up deep in Miami territory.

Nelson added another catch late in the opening stanza and entered the midway point of the first quarter with a whopping 139 yards. Whew.
