It was hard to find a positive stat for Eagles rookie wide receiver Nelson Agholor in last Sunday’s 24-17 win over the Jets at the Meadowlands.
He played 93 percent of the snaps, with four targets and no receptions.
But that’s not necessarily how he saw it, and it’s not how the man guarding him for most of the game, All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis, saw it.
“Obviously, everyone wants to impact the game with the ball in their hands, but how else do you impact the game?” Agholor told Delaware online. “I felt like I competed for four quarters. At the end of the game, [Revis] looked at me and said, ‘Keep working. You’re going to be fine.’
“I was happy about that. That’s what you want at the end of the day. This is a league where you want the respect of your peers and the guys you play against. You want a guy that lines up [across from] you to know that you came out here prepared and you played hard.”
