Vick, Eagles fall short at home against Packers

January 10, 2011 4:12:41 AM PST
Michael Vick has run out of comebacks. In a season full of personal and professional redemption, Vick's magical tale ended the first weekend of the playoffs.

Vick didn't have enough dazzling plays to carry the NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles and was intercepted in the end zone on the final drive of a 21-16 loss to Green Bay on Sunday.

Vick went deep for the potential go-ahead touchdown, attempting a 38-yard pass to Riley Cooper. But Packers cornerback Tramon Williams got in front of Cooper and picked off an underthrown attempt to seal the win for the Packers.

Vick was 20 of 36 for 292 yards, ran for a TD and threw for another. He also rushed for 33 yards in his first playoff start since losing the 2005 NFC championship game on the same field as a member of the Atlanta Falcons.
