Philadelphia's Nick Foles threw his first interception of the season, leaving him just shy of matching Peyton Manning's record for most touchdowns without a pick to start the season.

Foles entered Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions with 19 touchdowns and no interceptions. Foles had his 201st pass of the season intercepted by cornerback Chris Houston in a driving snowstorm. The Lions scored a touchdown off the turnover and made the 2-point conversion.

Foles had a pass intercepted for the first time since a December 2012 game against Washington.
