Eagles win easily in Oakland

Philadelphia Eagles v Oakland Raiders Getty Images

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.

    As soon as I get excited about my Raiders, they crap out a turn like this game, getting closer, but still so far away…

    The NFC East belongs to the Redskins. #StepasideJuniors

    Anyone remember the last time the team From DC even won a playoff game??

  5. Youknowimright says: Nov 3, 2013 7:25 PM

    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.

  6. 7pints says: Nov 3, 2013 7:25 PM

    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.

    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.

  8. ninjapleazee says: Nov 3, 2013 7:27 PM

    Apparent knee injury = hurt ego

  9. defswitch says: Nov 3, 2013 7:27 PM

    Eagles will get tested next week in Green Bay. Hope Foles keeps it up.

    @ statsdolie:

    Anyone remember the last time the team from Philadelphia won a Super Bowl?

  11. nitro276 says: Nov 3, 2013 7:33 PM

    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.

  13. gromgrimfist says: Nov 3, 2013 7:34 PM

    Foles looked like a franchise QB today I hope he can keep it up

  14. thepftpoet says: Nov 3, 2013 7:34 PM

    LOLOLOLOL @ the steelers

  15. jonevans83 says: Nov 3, 2013 7:35 PM

    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.

  16. moerawn says: Nov 3, 2013 7:36 PM

    The sun dims a bit when Philthy wins.

  17. cunninghampeetemcnabbvick says: Nov 3, 2013 7:37 PM

    I thought we’d beat the Raiders if we could force turn overs but the game was long over before the Raiders coughed it up.

  18. cwk22 says: Nov 3, 2013 7:38 PM

    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…..

  19. charlie2254 says: Nov 3, 2013 7:38 PM

    Eagles O line dominated like I said.

  20. statsdolie says: Nov 3, 2013 7:40 PM

    Although the eagles don have a superbowl I do remember them winning a NFL championship and it was glorious

  21. jbaxt says: Nov 3, 2013 7:42 PM

    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.

  22. sabatimus says: Nov 3, 2013 7:58 PM

    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.

  23. 22yearsagotoday says: Nov 3, 2013 8:07 PM

    “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.

  24. goldensuneagle says: Nov 3, 2013 8:09 PM

    To be fair, if the Eagles kept the pedal to the medal; they could have given Foles TEN touchdowns. He was so on target today, it was ridiculous.

    Maybe the steelers should try to do it next week

  26. The Shoeman says: Nov 3, 2013 8:14 PM

    How many #1 picks is Shanahan offering for Foles ?

  27. oakraid says: Nov 3, 2013 8:15 PM

    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.

  28. goldensuneagle says: Nov 3, 2013 8:15 PM

    Errr. metal*

    And eesh, way to make Riley Cooper relevant again; whose to say Vick could do that.

    That was brutal. I’m pretty sure I saw Tarver flipping off his defense today.

  31. kcchiefsfandave2013 says: Nov 3, 2013 8:24 PM

    Great game by Foles today, thought the Oakland secondary was better than that.

  32. i10east says: Nov 3, 2013 8:25 PM

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

  33. officialgame says: Nov 3, 2013 8:40 PM

    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.

  34. bobbyhoying says: Nov 3, 2013 8:48 PM

    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.

  35. slick50ks says: Nov 3, 2013 8:54 PM

    It’s easy to look good against THAT team.

    Pathetic.

    Stay in the basement where you belong.

    like I said on October 31st…

    Upset pick…Eagles over Raiders..

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

    Go Iggles!!!

    egirl fans calm down it was the raiders. big whip yawn.

  39. yetimonster says: Nov 3, 2013 9:13 PM

    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.

  40. youcantmakemepickausername says: Nov 3, 2013 9:44 PM

    What does Marcus Vick think about all this?

  41. trapshoot says: Nov 3, 2013 9:48 PM

    Quite a change from his last outing.

  42. eaglesnoles05 says: Nov 3, 2013 9:49 PM

    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.

  43. realitypolice says: Nov 3, 2013 10:23 PM

    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.

  45. cunninghampeetemcnabbvick says: Nov 3, 2013 10:46 PM

    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.

  46. ninozlatino says: Nov 3, 2013 11:20 PM

    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!!

  47. r8dernation says: Nov 3, 2013 11:23 PM

    Man, i wish Vick had played today. That’s something you never hear.

  48. eaglefan94 says: Nov 4, 2013 12:10 AM

    “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!

  49. MyTeamsAllStink says: Nov 4, 2013 12:26 AM

    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.

  50. mythaimyke says: Nov 4, 2013 7:02 AM

    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!!!!!!!

  51. mullman76 says: Nov 4, 2013 7:35 AM

    @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

  52. wydok says: Nov 4, 2013 7:42 AM

    @jonevans83:

    Some Packer fans can tell you differently.

  53. bearshaterseverywhere says: Nov 4, 2013 11:03 AM

    meanwhile, Mike Vick is organizing his next Dog fights. Foles is a God send for the Eagles. Vick always had been and still is the most overrated QB in the history of the NFL.

  54. s0merand0mguy says: Nov 4, 2013 12:41 PM

    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?
