Video: On the bright side, Vick set the NFL’s QB rushing record

Not much went well for Michael Vick and his don't-call-us-the-dream-team Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. He threw a career-high four interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown, took another pounding from an opposing defense and saw his Eagles lose for the fourth straight week, derailing a season that began with so much hope and promise.

But, hey, on the bright side, Vick broke Randall Cunningham's career record for most rushing yards by a quarterback.

In the third quarter of Philly's 31-24 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Vick scrambled for a 53-yard run that moved him past the former Eagles quarterback on the all-time list. It was the second-longest run of his career.

That play sums up Michael Vick perfectly: Staggering athleticism, unprecedented speed and an inability to avoid a hit by running out of bounds.

Vick entered the day behind Cunningham's record by 71 yards. He finished with 90 rushing yards in the game and finished with 4,948 yards in his career.

The Eagles are off to the team's worst start since 1999, Andy Reid's first year as head coach.
