Foles' Streak Ends, Lions Get On Board


The streak has come to an end.

Quarterback Nick Foles threw his first interception of the season in the treacherous conditions at Lincoln Financial Field ending his streak of 237 consecutive pass attempts without an interception, a new franchise record. Foles threw 19 touchdown passes to start the season before throwing his first pick, which is the second-best mark in NFL history just behind Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. Earlier this season, Manning tossed 21 touchdowns before his first interception.

On the first play of the Eagles' second offensive drive in the second quarter, Foles overthrew wide receiver Riley Cooper in the middle of the field and the ball went right into the hands of cornerback Chris Houston, who returned the ball 30 yards to the Eagles' 20-yard line.

The Lions, who had already fumbled the ball away twice before the interception, took advantage and scored on a 2-yard touchdown run by running back Joique Bell for the game's opening points.
