Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Nick Foles threw a record-tying seven touchdown passes as the Eagles destroyed the Oakland Raiders 49-20 on Sunday (you can see each of Foles’ touchdowns here).
Foles completed 22-of-28 passes for 406 yards and threw touchdowns to five different receivers – tight ends Brent Celek and Zach Ertz, running back Lesean McCoy and wide receivers Desean Jackson and Riley Cooper. Cooper had three touchdown catches.
The Eagles racked up 542 yards and took the foot off of the pedal in the fourth quarter.
The Raiders put up 560 yards themselves, but their last score came in garbage time and they never showed a sign of being able to keep up with the Eagles.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor was 22-of-41 for 288 yards and rushed for 94 yards on 10 carries, but the former Ohio State Buckeye never found the end zone and threw two interceptions. Pryor injured his knee and was replaced in the final quarter by former Penn State Nittany Lions’ signal-caller Matt McGloin.
The Raiders did manage to pile up 210 rushing yards, led by Rashad Jennings, who had 102 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. The Raiders’ starting running back, Darren McFadden, left the game with a hamstring injury and did not return.
The win improved the Eagles to 4-5, one game behind the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East. The Raiders fell to 3-5, 5.5 games behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West.
The Eagles will be in Green Bay to take on the Packers while the Raiders will take on the New York Giants next Sunday.
