Nick Foles ties NFL single-game passing TDs record

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is having a game that he will never forget. As the team is running away with the game over the Oakland Raiders, Foles has tied the single-game NFL record for passing touchdowns in a game with seven.

Here are the others to reach seven touchdown passes in a game:

Player TD Game
Joe Kapp 7  Minnesota Vikings vs. Baltimore Colts, September 28, 1969
Sid Luckman+ 7  Chicago Bears vs. New York Giants, November 14, 1943
Adrian Burk 7  Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins, October 17, 1954
Peyton Manning  7  Denver Broncos vs. Baltimore Ravens, September 5, 2013
George Blanda+ 7  Houston Oilers vs. New York Titans, November 19, 1961
Y.A. Tittle+ 7  New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins, October 28, 1962

Foles recorded his seventh touchdown of the game with a five-yard pass to Riley Cooper, which was Cooper’s third touchdown grab of the game.

With more than a quarter to play, Foles already has 400 yards passing to go along with the seven touchdowns, so he has plenty of time left to break the all-time record.

Cooper (3), DeSean Jackson, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and Brent Celek have all hauled in touchdown catches.

Stay tuned to see if Foles can break the record in the final 18 minutes of the game.
