Down 23-17, the Eagles started at their 20 with 4:43 left. Vick threw passes of 24 and 13 yards to Brent Celek. A 19-yard pass to Clay Harbor, coupled with a roughing-the-passer penalty, put the ball at the 3.

Vick then threw incomplete as he was being hit by Haloti Ngata, but the play was ruled a fumble. It was recovered by the Ravens, but replay overturned the turnover, and Vick scored on the next play.
