ATLANTA - For the second week in a row, the Atlanta Falcons lost to one of the NFL's worst teams.
Michael Vick threw two interceptions and carelessly fumbled the ball away with 2:18 remaining, allowing the Cleveland Browns to escape with a win Sunday over the banged-up Falcons.
Atlanta was coming off a 30-14 loss at Detroit, only the second win of the year for the Lions. The Browns had dropped three of four before they knocked off the Falcons in front of 70,000 stunned fans at the Georgia Dome.
Vick completed only 16 of 40 passes for 197 yards, but had the Falcons in position to pull off a comeback with a 55-yard pass to Roddy White, who made a tumbling catch at the Cleveland 17.
But the threat ended when Vick fumbled while dangling the ball loosely in his left hand and Jereme Perry recovered the fumble.
