OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Nick Foles has tied an NFL record by throwing seven touchdown passes for the Philadelphia Eagles against the Oakland Raiders.

Foles matched the record last reached in the season-opener by Peyton Manning when he connected with Riley Cooper on a 5-yard pass with 4:28 remaining in the third quarter. It was his third TD pass to Cooper on the day.

Foles also connected with Brent Celek, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson to become the seventh quarterback to throw for seven TDs in a single game. The others to reach that mark are Sid Luckman, Adrian Burk, George Blanda, Y.A. Tittle and Joe Kapp.
