PHOTO: Mike Vick lateral turns into Redskins 75-yard fumble return TD
The Eagles offense looked good early until it made one big mistake: a Michael Vick lateral that was batted down and returned for a touchdown by the Redskins.
If you blink, you might miss the Philadelphia Eagles run five offensive plays.
On the Eagles first offensive series on Monday, Chip Kelly's 'Blur Offense' was everything it was cracked to be until one small hiccup: quarterback Michael Vick threw a lateral pass that the Redskins returned 75-yards for a touchdown.
At least that was the ruling on the field.
On first-and-4 from the Washington four-yard line, Vick was looking to hit running back LeSean McCoy with a swing pass, but the pass was batted down. Only the swing pass was thrown backwards, so when the ball was batted down it was a fumble.
Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall picked up the loose ball and ran 75-yards for a touchdown.
The play was reviewed and it was determined that Vick did throw the ball backwards. Of course, the photo above shows that maybe he didn't.
Before the turnover, the Eagles opening drive had gone 70-yards on 10-plays.
