CLEVELAND (AP) -- Michael Vick overcame four interceptions by throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Clay Harbor with 1:18 left as the Philadelphia Eagles opened the season with a nerve-racking 17-16 win over the Cleveland Browns.
Vick led the Eagles on a 91-yard scoring drive, capping it with his short toss to Harbor on his career-high 56th pass. Before Vick rallied his team, the superstar played poorly and showed rustiness after playing just 12 snaps during the exhibition season because of injuries.
But when it mattered most, Vick came through, and the Eagles, who hurt themselves with turnovers and penalties, escaped.
Vick went 29 of 56 for 317 yards and two TDs.
Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden threw four interceptions, the last to Kurt Coleman with 1:05 remaining.

Michael Vick just threw the ball out of bounds while being rushed by 3 Browns defenders.
That is all.
It’s very easy to pile on Michael Vick after his 4 interception performance against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Anyone who reads this site with any regularity knows without any doubt that I’m no fan of Michael Vick. Never have been, probably never will be.
The problem is that Michael Vick is the Quarterback of the Eagles, which happens to be the team I love and would give...
Michael Vick had a performance to forget, even as he led the Eagles to victory.
Vick through four interceptions and never had any consistency until he led the Eagles 91 yards for the go-ahead score in a 17-16 win over the Cleveland Browns. But there were misreads. There was miscommunication. And overall, there was just something missing as he continues to find his way in this offense...
(On finishing a lot of hits on Michael Vick)- “That’s just how we play. DQ [D’Qwell Jackson] said it best; we’re just trying to pick an identity for ourselves. We’ve got to be a good defense- we’ve got to create an identity. Get the ball, rush the quarterback, make plays," Robertson said.
So many points of concerns from the Philadelphia Eagles’ ugly 17-16 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday that it’s hard to know where to begin. Mike Vick’s poor decision making? The beating he took in just one game (thank God for military-grade Kevlar vests…)? The pass/rush imbalance? And how happy should we really be about winning a game by one point given the fact...
The Philadelphia Eagles escaped with a win against the Cleveland Browns 17-16 yesterday. Most of the discussion following the game has been about Michael Vick. Vick threw four interceptions, but did lead the Eagles on a last minute drive to get the W. The unsung hero of the game was the entire Philadelphia defense. There were many questions about the defense and how...
It was ugly. It was embarrassing. But the Philadelphia Eagles got the job done and managed to escape Cleveland with a 17-16 victory over the Browns.
On offense, there wasn’t much to be proud of. On defense, there wasn’t much to complain about. Ultimately, there’s only one thing to walk away from in all of this—thank God the NFL season is a long one!
The Eagles’ performance...
It was wonderful spending time with you at the Olympics. I enjoyed reading your column about Serena's Crip Walk at Wimbledon. But it's football season, and I really need to hear the truth about the NFL season.

The Dallas Cowboys impressive win against the New York Giants on Wednesday night 24-17, has officially made the NFC East wide open and the Philadelphia Eagles have a shot this season to be the next ‘Redeem’ team in 2012. Now it’s foolish to compare the 2012 Eagles to the 2008 U.S. Olympic Basketball team, but [...]
The Philadelphia Eagles edged the Cleveland Browns by a score of 17-16 in a Week 1 edge-of-your-seat finish.
Michael Vick led the Eagles on a 17-play, 91-yard drive that culminated in a 4-yard TD pass to Clay Harbor. The drive began with 6:25 left in the game, ate up 5:07 and ultimately left the Browns with 1:12 on the clock when they got the ball back.
It was a game the Philadelphia Eagles should have easily won. On paper they were clearly better than the Cleveland Browns, but as we all know the game is not played on paper. After making numerous mistakes throughout the game, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick made a big play at the end of the game to secure a 17-16 win over the Browns as the Eagles start the season with a 1-0 record...
