In case you missed it last night, former Virginia Tech football great Michael Vick had a career night on Monday Night Football.
The Vick-led Eagles led 35-0 after the first play of the second quarter. Vick completed his first 10 passes and finished 20 for 28 for 333 yards with four touchdowns. The first play of the game was an 88-yard deep pass for a touchdown, the longest first play from scrimmage in Eagles’ history. Vick also ran eight times for 80 yards and two scores, moving past Steve Young and into second place in NFL history for yards rushing by a quarterback.
Vick became the first player in NFL history with at least 300 yards passing, 50 yards rushing, four passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in a game. He hasn’t thrown an interception or lost a fumble this season.
