Foles throws 7

Quarterback Nick Foles of the Philadelphia Eagles became just the seventh player in National Football League history to throw seven touchdown passes in a game. He registered a perfect passer rating of 158.3 after completed 22 of 28 passes for 406 yards, the record-tying 7 TDs, and no interceptions in leading the Eagles to a commanding victory over the Oakland Raiders in Week 9 action.

Foles’ milestone moment came just weeks after Peyton Manning threw 7 TDs passes during Kickoff Weekend in September. Prior to Manning’s performance, the last QB to toss 7 TDs in a game occurred in 1969.

Foles joins Manning and Hall of Famer Y.A. Tittle as the only one of the group of QBs to throw 7 TDs in a game with no interceptions.
