OAKLAND, Calif. -- Nick Foles tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes and threw for 406 yards to revitalize a struggling offense for the Philadelphia Eagles in a 49-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Foles connected three times with Riley Cooper to become the seventh quarterback in NFL history with seven TD tosses in a game. Peyton Manning did it for Denver on opening night this season against Baltimore.

Foles also threw scoring passes to Brent Celek, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson as the Eagles (4-5) looked nothing like the offense that failed to score a touchdown in each of the past two weeks.

The Raiders (3-5) had looked much improved on defense in recent weeks but were completely flummoxed by coach Chip Kelly's spread offense that stalled in recent weeks after a fast debut in the NFL.
