FOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts — Jeremy Maclin ran past Darrelle Revis along the right side and hauled in a long touchdown pass.

But it was only at a joint practice between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots before their preseason game on Friday night.

Maclin didn't need to catch Nick Foles' pass against one of the NFL's best cornerbacks to boost his confidence. Maclin says he feels as if he can go against any defender.

And Revis likely wasn't giving maximum effort if he felt he accomplished what he wanted without exerting himself for the entire play. He says he's been playing for a while and sometimes you go all out and sometimes you don't. Revis says he knows what he needs to do.
