Michael Vick Throws First Interception Since 2006
It looks as though Sunday is a day of firsts across the NFL. Aaron Rodgers lost his first fumble of the year during the early games in what would turn out to be a 20-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Michael Vick had a streak going that was slightly more impressive, and that too has come to an end. Vick threw his first interception of the season against Chicago — a pass that was tipped in the red zone by the Bears defense. Because he missed time while he was in prison, it also happened to be Vick’s first pick in four years.
So during what has turned into an MVP-caliber season for Vick, he has shown us that he’s capable of making a mistake — one that technically wasn’t even his fault because a Chicago defender made a great play to get up and deflect the pass.
Meanwhile, the Bears are ahead of the Eagles 21-13 at the half and Jay Cutler looks like he actually has a clue. He’s completed only seven passes, but three of them have gone for touchdowns and he — brace yourself — has yet to throw an interception. Don’t worry, a long 30 minutes of football is still looming.
UPDATE: Jay Cutler threw four touchdown passes and the Bears won 31-26.
