Just Getting Started

After looking average to begin the season, Kessler really came on in the second half as his chemistry with Agholor was built. In the first half of the season, Kessler completed 69 percent of his passes for 1,565 yards, 11 touchdowns one interception, 7.6 yards per attempt and a professional quarterback rating of 106.8. And during that time, Agholor had 42 catches for 405 yards, four touchdowns and averaged 9.6 yards per catch.

In the second half of the season, Kessler completed 72 percent of his passes for 1,940 yards, 25 touchdowns, three interceptions, 9.4 yards per attempt, and a rating of 135.1. Agholor had 55 catches for 818 yards, 7 touchdowns and 14.8 yards per catch during that stretch. So you can see the chemistry between the two improved and that’s scratching the surface of what they could do if they stay together another year.
