Foles ties NFL record with 7 TD passes

Nick Foles has tied an NFL record by throwing seven touchdown

passes for the Philadelphia Eagles against the Oakland Raiders.

Foles matched the record last reached in the season-opener by

Peyton Manning when he connected with Riley Cooper on a 5-yard pass

with 4:28 remaining in the third quarter. It was his third TD pass

to Cooper on the day.

Foles also connected with Brent Celek, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy

and DeSean Jackson to become the seventh quarterback to throw for

seven TDs in a single game. The others to reach that mark are Sid

Luckman, Adrian Burk, George Blanda, Y.A. Tittle and Joe Kapp.
