NFL: Eagles QB Nick Foles Ties Record with 7 TD Passes

First, it was Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. Now, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles -- a virtual unknown to many -- threw seven touchdown passes in the Eagles' 49-20 road win over the Oakland Raiders.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles threw for seven touchdowns in the Eagles' 49-20 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, tying an NFL record. 

Foles matched Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning's seven touchdown passes on Opening Day against the defending Super Bowl champions Baltimore Ravens o Sept .6. Foles' last touchdown pass of the game -- a five-yard pass to Riley Cooper -- came with 4:28 left in the third quarter. 

All in all, the Eagles' second-year quarterback went 22 of 28 for 406 yards. He also tied an Eagles team record which was first set by Adrian Burk against the Washington Redskins in 1954. 

What's even more remarkable is that Foles joins Manning and former New York Giants quarterback Y.A. Tittle as the only men to pull off the feat without throwing a single interception. 

Most of Foles' throws were to Cooper, who, by virtue of his quarterback's historic feat, enjoyed a career day of his own with three touchdown receptions for 139 yards. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson also had a great day, finishing with one touchdown courtesy of Foles and 150 yards.

The other Eagles who caught Foles' touchdown passes were LeSean McCoy, Zach Ertz and Brent Celek.

Foles' re-writing of the record books happens a week after he missed last week's game against the New York Giants after he sustained a concussion a week before against another NFC East rival, the Dallas Cowboys. 

In that game, was just 11 of 29 for 80 yards, a sharp contrast to his performance against the Raiders. 

Foles didn't get a chance to throw for an eighth touchdown pass as he was replaced by Matt Barkley in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy football rankings, Week 3: Quarterbacks

Sep 17 2014 9:03am CDT | Source: SBNation

The SB Nation fantasy staff looks forward to Week 3 and ranks the quarterbacks. Week 2 in the NFL proved to be a bloodbath with 55 players sustaining injuries that did not allow them to return to action. Unfortunately, the quarterback position wasn't exempt from this. Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III sustained a dislocated ankle and missed out on an opportunity to reestablish himself as one of the premier players in fantasy football. But quarterbacks can't do it ...

How Darren Sproles Has Become an Early-Season Eagles MVP

Sep 16 2014 4:41pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Last season, only six rookie fifth-round picks had a catch or a carry. The nine offensive skill position players drafted in that round had a total of 18 touchdowns (an average of two each) in 35 total starts (an average of four each). Saints wide receiver Kenny Stills and Rams running back Zac Stacy had some nice performances, but no fifth-rounder from that draft class made a major impact. In fact, here's a look at the best numbers we've seen from rookie fifth-round pick skill play ...
