Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick became the NFL's career leading rusher for quarterbacks on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.

Vick passed Randall Cunningham with a 53-yard scramble to the right in the third quarter that gave him 4,946 yards rushing, surpassing Cunningham's mark of 4,928 yards.

Coming into the game, Vick had rushed for 228 yards on 32 carries. He became the first player in history to throw for more than 400 yards and run for 75 yards in the same game last week against San Francisco.

In 2006, he set the single-season quarterback rushing record with 1,039 yards while with the Atlanta Falcons.
