Nick Foles immolated the Raiders in the Eagles' Week 9 win, completing 22-of-28 passes for 406 yards, seven touchdowns and zero interceptions.
Foles was pulled midway through the fourth quarter with the Eagles winning 49-13. Foles' seven touchdowns tie an NFL record held by six other players. As you may remember, Peyton Manning became the sixth player in league history to throw for seven scores in Denver's Week 1 win over the Ravens. Coming off one of the worst starts by any quarterback in the NFL this season, Foles simply did whatever he wanted against the Raiders' hodgepodge secondary, putting the perfect amount of loft underneath every throw. Every time he spotted an advantageous matchup, he exploited it. Foles averaged 13.9 yards per attempt, and had seven completions of 20 yards or longer. His touchdowns went for two, 17, 63, 15, 25, 46 and five yards. Now the owner of a 13:0 TD:INT ratio on the season, Foles will get the Packers on the road in Week 10. Michael Vick (hamstring) may not get another start, regardless of his health.
