Young Throws 4 INTs In Loss

In the middle, Vince Young played a pretty solid game for the Eagles. But his night started in the worst way and all but ended in even worse fashion. The veteran quarterback, making his third consecutive start for the Eagles, rolled right and threw a bewildering interception on the team's first play from scrimmage. The Seahawks would take advantage, driving 60 yards in only six plays for a 7-0 lead they would never relinquish.
Then, in the fourth quarter, with the team driving down the field down 10 points, Young threw another head-scratching interception, this one by linebacker David Hawthorne, who promptly returned the interception 77 yards for a touchdown, icing the game and giving the Seahawks a 31-14 lead, the game's final score.
Young threw four interceptions on the night, one on a dropped pass by Riley Cooper, and another on the drive immediately following the pick-six. He threw for 208 yards on 17-of-29 passing, with a touchdown and a 52.7 quarterback rating.
After the team fell behind 14-0, Young engineered a five-play, 71-yard touchdown drive that was highlighted by a sparkling play from Young in which he eluded the pass rush, rolled left and fired a deep pass to a wide open Riley Cooper for a 47-yard gain. LeSean McCoy would punch the ball into the end zone two plays later.
Then, with the team down 24-7, Young and the Eagles drove 17 plays and 80 yards to bring the team within 10 points after Young tossed a 2-yard shovel pass to McCoy for a touchdown. Following a defensive stand, Young and the Eagles offense once again moved the ball effectively, taking the ball from their own 11-yard-line to the Seahawks' 22-yard-line. The Eagles had a glimmer of hope, with a chance to cut the lead to only three points with under five minutes remaining. But on a 1st-and-10, Young sat in the pocket, surveyed the scene downfield, then swung the ball outside, where McCoy was blanketed by Hawthorne. Seventy-seven yards in the opposite direction later, the Eagles' evening fate was decided as the team fell to 4-8 on the year.
With a 10-day layoff ahead of the team's next game, in Miami against the Dolphins on December 11, Michael Vick could be ready to return to his quarterback position. If that's the case, Young's three-game resume at the helm for the Eagles would read one win to two losses, and four touchdowns to eight interceptions. The Eagles' 29 turnovers this season are the most in the NFL.
