Eagles win easily in Oakland

The Eagles’ offense made it look easy today in Oakland.

Behind Nick Foles’ record-tying seven-touchdown day, the Eagles ran it up on the Raiders and won in a laugher, 49-20.

Foles completed 22 of 28 passes for 406 yards, with seven touchdowns and no interceptions, for a perfect passer rating of 158.3. Eagles coach Chip Kelly pulled Foles in favor of Matt Barkley in the fourth quarter, instead of giving Foles an opportunity to become the first player in NFL history to throw eight touchdown passes in a game.

Foles now has 13 touchdown passes this season and no interceptions. The NFL record for most touchdown passes before throwing an interception is 20, set by Peyton Manning this year.

For the Raiders, quarterback Terrelle Pryor made some plays, including 94 rushing yards, but he was inconsistent through the air and threw two interceptions. He also suffered an apparent knee injury and left the game early, replaced by backup Matt McGloin.

Philadelphia has had an up-and-down season, but this was a sensational performance. The Eagles aren’t a great team, but in the NFC East they’re contenders. And if they can get their offense to run like this consistently, they’re not a team any defense will want to face.

  1. And now everyone in philly loves the eagles again. Bad team that beats bad team. But the frontrunners in philly will overreact to a hollow win. Again.

  2. This can’t be. I swear Jokeland fans said they were on their way to a 10-6 record and a playoff run. Oh Jokeland fan. I love you guys.

  3. Dennis Allen and his staff are out of excuses. They looked pathetic today. Outcoached, outplayed & outclassed by the Iggles.

    If I’m bowl-cut Mark Davis, I’m interviewing the nearest offensive guru I can find to run my team.

  4. Been an eagles fan for 33+ years. Never have I heard more criticism of a player in the Philly media and fanbase than Nick Foles has had bestowed upon him this year. There has been a strong undercurrent of hate that gives him no room for error. It is time for the haters to shut up. Stop clamoring to blow a 1st round pick on an unproven college QB. Foles is the man. Back off and let him play!!!

    You realize that this is the same team with $60mil in dead cap space, the team that was supposed to win only 2 or 3 games this season, right? I agree that this performance was just about as horrible as can be from a defensive perspective, but this team only has a few guys worth keeping going into 2014 anyway.

  6. So many people say “My” when referring to the team they may root for… news flash: You do not own a team nor have any stake what so ever in the franchise.

  7. Logicalvoices should stick to his suck team the redskins and quit trolling on other teams. Of course he is good for a laugh… Hate the injury to Prior and McFadden. A dolphin fan…..

  8. Oakland is horrible. This is a team the supposed horrible Chiefs gave up 13 points to? Hilarious, stay classy Oakland. You play like Ron Burgundy’s definition of San Diego.

  9. Given the fact that the Eagles brought in Barkley in the 4th, thereby eliminating Foles’ chance at history, Philly is officially the No Fun Team.

  10. “pulled Foles in favor of Matt Barkley in the fourth quarter, instead of giving Foles an opportunity to become the first player in NFL history to throw eight touchdown passes in a game”

    I see what you’re trying to do.

    ——————————————————————————-

  12. Nice win Philly. You owned us today. 7 TD’s to 7 wide open guys, unreal.

    I have no idea who that team in black was today, that aint the team I’ve been watching this year. All 3 phases sucked today.

    The NFC East belongs to the Redskins. #StepasideJuniors

    ………………………..

    LOL

  14. The Eagles are still an average but ascending team. They are improving defensively, and are ranked second in the league offensively. They still have holes and aren’t consistent enough to be considered a top flight team. They have proved one thing for certain: the imbeciles who said Kelly’s offense won’t work in the NFL are just that, imbeciles.

  15. The Eagles have been very good away from the Linc. Maybe they just don’t like the fans in Philly. More likely it’s the curse of Juan Castillo who was a scape goat.

  16. like I said on October 31st…

    Upset pick…Eagles over Raiders..

    I received 38 thumbs downs…how you feel now you clowns.???

    Go Iggles!!!

    Philly won the battle of the most ghetto cities on each coast.

    actually baltimore is worse than philadelphia…but good try!

  18. Raiders were a top 10 defense before today. And when Philly spanked Tampa a few weeks ago, they were #7 defense. Sure, neither team has a good record, and neither do the Eagles. Stop acting like the Raiders are a pushover team.

  19. Everyones got us alllllll figured out. Dumb.

    Hope the qb plays bad, and if not you are gonna get the ball moved all over the field on you. That’s the magic formula.

  20. I thought I was doomed in my fantasy match up this week because Peyton Manning was on his bye and I was forced to start Nick Foles.

    Didn’t turn out so bad, if I do say so myself.

    I think you got 38 thumbs down because making predictions of “upsets” in blog comment sections is incredibly douchey.

  22. Sorry to Raiders fans who had to watch that. I know what it’s like. The Eagles got whooped earlier in the season by the Bronco’s. Young teams are going to have their ups and downs. The Raiders are still a team on the up and up if you ask me.

  23. eagles have yet to beat a quality opponent. lets c If they can beat green bay and gain some credibility. defense comin around. better special teams play. o line lookin good. lets do this!!

  24. “Foles completed 22 of 28 passes for 406 yards, with seven touchdowns and no interceptions, for a perfect passer rating of 158.3.”

    That means that one out of every four passes he threw was for a TD. Also, he was averaging 14.5 yards per attempt, with a completion percentage of 78.6%. This is one of, if not the greatest QB performances in NFL history.

    Let’s see how we do in Green Bay next week!

  25. Terrelle Pryor sucks.Great he can run and scramble.His arm is terrible and he makes bad decisions.He sucks in the pocket and he has a slow release.The NFL will figure him out and he’ll be bagging groceries with Vince Young.

  26. Start Matt McGloin, see what he can do! Pryor is a pathetic choice, definitely not an NFL caliber QB and never will be! That’s all he’s got after 3 1/2 years!!! He’s TERRIBLE!!!!!!!

  27. @7pints: You are a simpleton of the highest order. Stop being a troll, take out the trash and start paying rent for that basement already.

    I’m sorry a Raiders fan took your lunch money when you were a kid (probably recently) but it’s time to buck up and stop whining.

    Go Raiders

  28. 1st it was: It’s the NY Giants in the 2nd half getting crushed but they didn’t prepare for him
    2nd: Tamp Bay gets owned by Foles but it’s the JUST the bucs!
    3rd: Foles has groin injury and suffers concussion again Dallas.
    4th: Oakland Raiders get crushed by Foles

    See NO MATTER what Foles accomplishes there will always be somebody bitter that he proved wrong to say it’s just not good enough. Foles is a franchise QB and will be amazing considering he’s 24 years old and it’s his 2nd year as a pro. Eating crow just tastes awful huh haters?
