Eagles Vs. Browns Score: Vick Leads Philly On Touchdown Drive To Lead At Half

The defenses have led the charge and the quarterbacks have struggled, but Michael Vick led the Eagles on a touchdown drive that took just 32 seconds to give Philadelphia a 10-3 lead over the Cleveland Browns at halftime.

Cleveland rookie Brandon Weeden struggled in his first NFL game, completing 7-of-19 passes for 68 yards and two interceptions.

Aside from a scoot by Weeden for 25 yards and a 35-yard run by receiver Travis Benjamin, the Browns have struggled to move the ball on the ground as well. Rookie back Trent Richardson has 11 rushes for only 25 yards.

Tied at 3-3 for most of the first half, Philadelphia finally got the ball moving with less than a minute before heading to the locker room. Starting on their own 26-yard line, the Eagles got the ball in the end zone thanks to a 46-yard pass from Vick to Jeremy Maclin that set up a second Vick-to-Maclin connection for an 18-yard touchdown pass. The five-play, 74-yard drive took only 32 seconds.

Michael Vick threw for 209 yards on 17-for-28 passing and one interception in the first half.

The Browns scored in the first quarter on a 43-yard field goal by Phil Dawson after D'Qwell Jackson recovered a fumble by Philadelphia's LeSean McCoy at midfield.
