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.

How the Eagles Will Try to Limit J.J. Watt's Impact

Oct 29 2014 3:07am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Philadelphia Eagles can’t stop J.J. Watt—they can only hope to contain him, to borrow an old saying. And even that will take some doing. The NFL is still seeking an answer for the Houston Texans defensive end, who at the age of 25 has already earned practically every individual accolade in existence. Watt has been to two Pro Bowls, been named first-team All-Pro twice, led the league in sacks and was Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, all in his fir ...

What to Expect from Lane Johnson, Philadelphia Eagles Offense in Week 9

Oct 28 2014 10:07pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Despite their 5-2 record and the fourth-highest scoring offense in the National Football League, it hasn't exactly been a smooth ride for the Philadelphia Eagles this season. In particular, quarterback Nick Foles has failed to play anywhere close to the level he showed in 2013, when his 13.5-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio broke the single-season record.  Foles has been adequate, subpar, mediocre and extreme ...

The ending of Cardinals v. Eagles was incredible and came down to one last play with a single second left on the clock. Arizona brought the house by sending seven pass rushers, Nick Foles did an excellent job to put the ball in the right place, but in the end rookie Jordan Matthews couldn't keep both feet in bounds to win the game. Here's a better angle on just how close this was. ...
