Eagles Gab Rapid Recap: Late TD Helps Eagles Escape Cleveland with 17-16 Win

A win is a win, but too many more of these and Eagles fans will be bald by week four.

Outplayed most of the day, the Eagles had to put together a 91-yard, 16-play drive late to escape Cleveland with a hard fought 17-16 win.

Michael Vick was pretty bad, and the Eagles offense had really just one drive to speak of, but it was enough as Clay Harbor caught the game-winning sore.

The Browns were in it all the way, leading 16-10 late Sunday, putting on a great performance against Vick and the Eagles offense.

Their failure to finish came through, as safety Kurt Coleman picked off Browns rookie QB Brandon Weeden on the first play of the Browns next drive to seal the one-point win.

Weeden got a taste of the NFL for the first time, and it didn’t go down so well. Weeden was held to a 5.1 QB rating, throwing 12-for-35 for 118 yards with no touchdowns and four picks in the loss.

New Browns running back Trent Richardson ran for 39 yards on 19 carries, and Mohamed Massaquoi led the team with 41 yards on three catches.

The Browns got the go-ahead score when LB D’Qwell Jackson picked off Vick and went 27 yards for the go-ahead score with 13:59 left to put the Browns up 16-10.

Phil Dawson led the Browns with three field goals.

Vick was 29-for-56 for 317 yards with two touchdowns and four picks. The Eagles led at the half 10-3 after Vick hit Jeremy Maclin for an 18-yard TD with :17 left in the first half.

The Browns were outgained by the Eagles 456 to 210 in yards, and Philly had 25 first downs to 11 for the Browns in the loss.
