Vick’s streak of 240 consecutive passes without an interception was snapped last week when a tipped ball was picked near the goal line.

The Texans marched downfield in 13 plays, with Foster running in from the 3 to make it 24-20. Schaub hit Johnson for 31 yards on third-and-17 to keep the drive alive.

Philadelphia’s Jorrick Calvin returned the opening kickoff 102 yards, but a holding penalty on Clay Harbor nullified the touchdown.

That was no problem for the Eagles. They drove 88 yards and went ahead 7-0 on Vick’s 1-yard TD pass to LeSean McCoy.

Vick connected with Jackson for 30 yards on the first play from scrimmage, and was 7 of 8 for 89 yards on the drive.

Jackson had two catches against the Bears, and was unhappy with his lack of production. He answered with three receptions for 84 yards.

McCoy ran in from the 4 on the next series, putting Philadelphia ahead 14-3. Vick scrambled 10 yards on third-and-8 to keep the drive going.

The Texans finally stopped the Eagles on their third possession — sort of. David Akers kicked a 36-yard field goal to make it 17-3.

Schaub then tossed an 8-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones to cut it to 17-10. He connected with Johnson for a 42-yard gain to the Eagles 11 two plays earlier. Johnson had just returned after going to the locker room.

Late in the second quarter, Schaub made an errant toss that was intercepted by defensive lineman Trevor Laws and returned to the Texans 18. Laws fumbled, but the Eagles recovered.

Philadelphia wasted the field position. Jason Avant and Celek each dropped what should’ve been touchdowns, and the Eagles settled for a 22-yarder by Akers for a 20-10 lead.

The Eagles played without three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel, who missed his second straight game with a knee injury. Samuel leads the NFL with seven interceptions.

Philadelphia is now a half-game ahead of the New York Giants (7-4) in the NFC East. New York plays host to Washington on Sunday.

“They are a good team and this is a tough place to play,” Schaub said. “We had a good plan, we kept fighting back. It just wasn’t enough in crunch time to do it.”
