Eagles take early lead despite another pick for Michael Vick

The interceptions are continuing for Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.

After engineering a good-looking opening drive for the Eagles, marching the offense deep into Ravens territory, Vick threw an interception — his league-high fifth interception of the season after throwing four in Week One against the Browns. The pick came after Vick made a great athletic play to scramble to the outside when the pocket broke down, but instead of tucking the ball under his arm and running, Vick threw a bad pass into the end zone, and Bernard Pollard made a diving interception.

Fortunately for the Eagles, the Ravens couldn’t do anything with the ensuing possession: Trent Cole stripped Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco on Flacco’s first dropback and Cullen Jenkins recovered, giving the Eagles great field position.

With that great field position the Eagles got into the end zone on a LeSean McCoy touchdown run, and Philadelphia took an early 7-0 lead.

Now the question is whether Vick — who has already taken several hard hits, including one that got Ed Reed a roughing the passer penalty — can make it through the rest of the game without any more interceptions. Or even make it through a quarter without another interception.
