Nelson Agolor was targeted five times. He made three catches. One was a 34-yard touchdown in which he did all the work.
But after the Eagles won their preseason opener, 36-10, over the Colts (see Instant Replay), the Eagles' first-round pick clearly was more disappointed in his two misses than the three receptions, touchdown included.
"One was an in-crossing route. Considered a basic route," Agholor said. "I felt like I could have come to the ball a little bit more. Attacked the ball in the middle of the seam there.
"I had two hands on the ball, guy comes in, rakes it out. End of the day, that's probably on my mind more than the hitch (the touchdown)."
The glaring miss came on a 3rd-and-12. Matt Barkley threw a wobbler that sailed right through Agholor's hands. Overall, it wasn't a bad effort from the rookie who is eventually expected to take over one of the starting outside spots.
