NFL Watch // Foles Historically Good Against Raiders

words // Brandon Richard

When you look in the NFL record books to see which quarterbacks have thrown the most touchdown passes in a single game, you’ll see names like Luckman, Blanda, Tittle, Manning…and Foles?

That’s right — Philadelphia Eagles backup Nick Foles etched his name in history with a 7 touchdown pass performance against the Oakland Raiders this past Sunday. Filling in for an injured Michael Vick, Foles threw touchdowns to Riley Cooper, Brent Celek, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson as the Eagles blasted the Raiders 49-20. This after the offense failed to score a touchdown during the previous two weeks.

Now, with Foles’ breakout game and Vick’s injury history, it’s believed that Foles will assume the starting role moving forward. It remains to be seen whether Foles is more like the record-setting star from Sunday or the guy who completed just 38% of his passes for 80 yards two weeks ago. Your move, Chip Kelly.

Also in Week 9, Cam Newton’s Carolina Panthers topped the Atlanta Falcons for their fourth straight victory; Tony Romo came up clutch in a 27-23 Cowboys win over the Minnesota Vikings; the New York Jets surprised the New Orleans Saints at home in the Ryan Bowl; defense kept the Kansas City Chiefs undefeated on the road in Buffalo; the Seattle Seahawks overcame a 21-point deficit to top the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; Tom Brady and the New England Patriots hung up 55 points on a declining Pittsburgh Steelers defense; Andrew Luck led another second half comeback as the Indianapolis Colts rallied against the Houston Texans; and the Packers may have lost Aaron Rodgers in a Monday night defeat at the hands of the rival Chicago Bears.

Take a look at some of the football cleats that hit the field for these games and more in today’s NFL Watch.
