Nick Foles ties NFL record with seven touchdown passes

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has seven touchdown passes today. And it’s still the third quarter.

The Philadelphia offense is putting the Oakland defense to shame, and Foles is carving up the secondary. With more than four minutes remaining in the third quarter, Foles has completed 21 of 26 passes for 400 yards, with seven touchdowns, no interceptions and a perfect 158.3 passer rating.

Foles has now tied the NFL record for touchdown passes in a game, a record that he shares with six other quarterbacks. The seven-touchdown mark was reached most recently by Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning in the first game of this season. The others to do it are Joe Kapp, Sid Luckman, Adrian Burk, George Blanda and Y.A. Tittle.

Now we’ll see if Foles will break the record — and if Chip Kelly, whose Eagles lead the Raiders 49-13, will give Foles the opportunity.

  1. The last time I saw a QB so on his game like this, it was Brett Favre on Monday night, just after his father died.

    Foles can do no wrong today.

  2. This is great! I’m not an Eagles fan yet I like to see records get tied or broken. I sure hope he breaks it so I can see the media make a huge deal out of Brady’s game against a team he always does well against while Fole’s record breaking game is not even really mentioned.

  3. It really pains me to say it, but everyone who has posted here is right. The NFL has figured out Chip Kelly’s offense and the man is simply Steve Spurrier 2.0, a coach who does not belong in the NFL.

  4. Is there any doubt that “the demise of Chip Kelly’s offense” had a lot to do with Matt Barkley playing QB?

  5. No Michael Vick on the list?
    The way his delusional fans always pump him up while bashing Foles was comical before this game but now it is truly hilarious.
    Nick Foles is a far better Quarterback than Michael Vick ever was.
    This should be apparent to all but the most strident Vick fans.

  6. And fyi the Raiders had the 9th best defense in the NFL entering this game.
    Nick Foles is about to earn his second NFC offensive player of the week.
    Which is two more than Michael Vick has…

  7. Isn’t this a couple more than Vick has thrown all year? I think the Eagles have their QB of the future, they just decided to waste half a season with playing Vick.

  8. Foles is NOT a franchise QB, he just doesn’t have it in the long run. Raiders D isn’t that great but Foles is on his game, problem is next game he’ll most likely not be on his game. Foles is a super roller coaster when it comes to performance. That being said I’m very happy with this performance

  9. Foles is good enough to prevent the eagles from getting a real franchise qb in next yrs draft. Welcome to purgatory philly. Enjoy your moment. This thing is a mirage.

  10. I love how all of these self proclaimed experts claim that Nick Foles is not a franchise QB.
    What are you basing this on?
    Newsflash: Nick Foles is in only his 2nd NFL season and he just tied the all-time mark for TDs thrown in a game.
    I’d say he has a bright future.

  11. listen to these Eagle fans.
    You re beating Oakland !
    Oakland !!!!!

    Oh this clown again. Dude you’re Giants are buried in last. Season over son.

  13. Jumpin’ Jiminy Crickets! Did not see this coming.

    Not Tom Terrific. Not Big Ben. Not the Sheriff. Not the Brees. But Nick Foles. Good golly!

  14. Foles looks like a quarterback should look when playing a team as lowly as the Oakland Raiders. I’m sorry, but that teams a joke and has been for quite a while. Good job Foles, but you’re just beating up on a weak opponent; which you should, because the Raiders SUCK!
    Go Broncos.

  15. Wait, y’all swore last week that this offense just didn’t work, that it was a hoax, a fraud, a joke, that defenses had figured it out? Chip isn’t an innovator, nothing to see here, boot him out the door and get back to real football, NFL football…

  16. My Raiders have been found out.

    akland Raiders to be exact.

    We have a D and have no O.

    Teams have no fear of our non-existent run game, no fear of our non-existent o-line, and so they go after the one-dimensional threat that is Terrell Pryor. I like TP a lot, but he needs help big time. I’m afraid we are found out for the rest of the season though and to top it off TP is hurt as well.

    49-20? Unreal. Hats off to the eagles and I hate to say that.

    It is too soon to know whether Foles is a franchise QB… but how is he inconsistent? Like a roller coaster?

    Coming into this week he was one of only six QB’s in the league with a QB rating of over 100.

    He’s had one bad game, against the Cowboys. He’s been above 100 easily in his other games.

    Now Geno Smith of the Jets is inconsistent, a roller coaster type of season, especially with the odd weeks compared to the even ones… (game 1, 3, 5, 7 vs. the even ones…).

  18. After today I don’t know what Nick Foles has to do to earn respect from the fans and from around the NFL.

    He can play. Sorry a perfect passer rating against a top 10 defensive unit doesn’t cut it.

    And this is what you call a bandwagoner. They see somebody who doesn’t have much game film on them do well against poor defenses and believe it is right. The basis is on what I just said. Once defenses start to plan around him and Foles hits the wall, I doubt he’s going to succeed. Can name a few other QBs that started a season or game out on fire.

    Kevin Kolb. Matt Flynn. Caleb Hanie against a good Packers Defense. Ryan Fitzpatrick. And so on and so on and so on. That record is nice but in the long haul won’t mean much. Just you wait. Not only watch in detail but play the game and you get a good understanding of it.

  20. No offense but callin Foles a “rollercoaster” shows you have absolutely no idea what you are watching. Foles TD:INT ratio this season is 13:0…….. Thats the opposite of a rollercoaster. Vick is, was, and always will be the rollcoaster.

    There was no D out there today, in addition to no O. You should have spelled it “aklan”. Foles had as many TD passes today as Oakland has had all year. That might work for a team like the Chiefs, who score their TDs on defense because their QB sucks, but it won’t work for the Raiders.

    Thank you Chip. Where are you trollonto?
    ***************************************************
    Loser alert. SMH.

  23. i know these 2 teams are playing out the string for nothing , but at least the Raiders could have show up for this one.

    Btw the Raiders defense may rank 10th overall but thats thanks to their RUN defense which is rank 6th , There PASSING DEFENSE is rank 24th , I guess it all adds up now.You could have put road pylons that could have done a better job of at least tripping up the receivers.

  24. i don’t know much, but i know that Michael Vick used to grab dogs by their hind legs and slam them into the ground until their skulls crushed and they died.

  25. Let’s put this kid in Canton NOW!

    Pleaseeeee. This means nothing. When you have two QBs in one season score 7 TDs in a game (and the season is only half way through), in the age of rules favoring the offense more than ever, 300+ pass games commonplace, you know these stats are inflated.

    Matt Flynn had 6 TDs for the Packers and he can’t hold onto the job, after being given multiple looks and chances.

  26. Kelly has to be happy – he finally got to run the score up on someone. Must make him feel big.

  27. Reading all these excuses is just plain ol sad. And remember all the “when you have 3 QB’s have you none” comments? Those clowns are eating crow. Foles is the eagles franchise QB. He was hurt in Dallas with a groin injury and concussion late in the game. When he’s healthy he’s an amazing QB for a 24 year old in his 2nd year as a pro. Foles is the future.

    2 things-

    Inconsistency & super roller coaster thy name is MIKE VICK. Talk about inconsistent (after 11 years in the NFL – Playing).

    Mike Vick has never, ever, ever had a game like Nick Foles yesterday. Please show us how many times Vick has had a PURE passing performance anywhere close to Foles did.

    Vick has never been & will never be a consistent passer. I wanted Foles to start from game one but guys like you kept hollering about how much better Mike Vick is & what a waste it was to start Foles. As always it just shows how much Vick supporters know about football. Had Nick been healthy for Dallas, it would have been a different game.

  29. 1st it was: It’s the NY Giants in the 2nd half 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
    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 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 tastest awful huh haters?

  30. Quick!! Eagles management – tie up 1/3 of your cap space to sign Foles to a 12 year contract!! Please, please, please do this. It’ll better than when you signed Vick to an extension.

    Foles is a good QB. He would have to show a heck of a lot more than beat the Bucs, Giants, and Raiders in my book, but by all means call him your franchise QB and saddle him up.
