The jersey and shoes worn by Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles and the football he threw to tie one of the NFL’s rarest records last Sunday have arrived in Canton. Foles became just the seventh passer in NFL history to throw seven touchdown passes in a game.

He is also one of just three of those QBs to have a record-tying seven TDs without throwing an interception. His history-making performance came during the Eagles’ 49-20 road win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 9 action. Foles completed 22 of 28 passes for 406 yards, and along with his 7 TDs and no picks his passer rating was a perfect 158.3.

“It’s very humbling to know that the Pro Football Hall of Fame will be displaying memorabilia from the game we played this past weekend against Oakland,” shared the second-year player. “I’ve visited the Hall of Fame in Canton before and have a great appreciation for the history of this game. As I’ve said all week, it was a great team win for us. I couldn’t have done anything out there without my teammates and I wish all of our jerseys could go there. This is a great honor for us.”

Foles made history Sunday. On Wednesday the Hall's VP - Communications/Exhibits Joe Horrigan opened the package from the Eagles that contained the mementoes from the game.



The artifacts were then promply placed on exhibit in the Pro Football Today Gallery next to Peyton Manning's jersey and football from his seven-TD performance during Kickoff Weekend.
