Michael Vick has thrown his first interception in four years.

The Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback had gone 238 passes without one when he was picked off by Chicago's Chris Harris late in the first half of Sunday's game against the Bears.

Vick previous interception was on Dec. 24, 2006, when he threw one for Atlanta against Carolina.

The streak came to an end on his 21st attempt of the game and 212th of the season.


With the Eagles at the Chicago 4 and trailing by one, Chris Harris picked off a pass in the end zone that teammate Tommie Harris tipped and ran it back to the 37.

Six plays later, Jay Cutler threw a 6-yard TD pass to Earl Bennett that pushed the Bears' lead to 21-13 with 38 seconds left in the half.

Vick spent 1 1/2 years in prison for his role in a dogfighting ring, and then played sparingly behind Donovan McNabb last season.
