Vick strikes early with 76-yard TD pass
By Matt Mosley
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Michael Vick has silenced the Cowboys Stadium crowd with a 76-yard touchdown throw to rookie wideout Jeremy Maclin. On second-and-3, Vick faked an inside handoff and then rolled out and hit Maclin near the sideline. It looked like Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins stumbled, allowing Maclin to get wide open. Then Jenkins complicated issues by taking a poor angle on his tackle attempt. Not sure why there wasn't a safety back there.
Perhaps the safeties were cheating up too much against the Wildcat. Huge play for the Eagles and we have a tie ballgame. And now Eagles safety Sean Jones has just made an interception, but I think it will be overruled. Looks like the ball hit the ground before Jones was able to secure it.
