OAKLAND, Calif. — Nick Foles has written his name into the NFL record books.

Foles threw seven touchdown passes today in the Philadelphia Eagles' game against the Oakland Raiders. 

Foles, the former Arizona Wildcats signal-caller, went 22 for 28 for 406 yards and seven touchdowns before being replaced in the fourth quarter with his team leading 49-13.

The seven touchdown passes tie an NFL single-game record. It has been done by six other players, most recently Peyton Manning earlier this season.

The most touchdowns Foles ever threw in a single game at Arizona was five against NAU in 2010.

The Star is in Oakland and will have postgame reaction from Foles and his teammates in Monday's edition.
