The 3-5 Eagles enter today's game with something to prove.


Eagles win the toss, but defer to receive. That's new. Raiders first drive features a crazy Terrelle Pryor scramble to an open Denarius Moore. Could be seeing a lot of this today. Pryor's mobility is dangerous. Next play, Trent Cole sack! First of the year for the Eagles veteran. Eagles get a stop, Raiders have to punt. Roughing the kicker, with a great sell job by Raiders punt Marquette King. Kurt Coleman is the guilty player. Fortunately, the Raiders are forced to punt again on their next set of downs. Eagles doing a nice job of containing the mobile Pryor.

Eagles take over for the first time. Nick Foles time. Foles hits Cooper for a 42 yard gain on a WR screen and yes, you read that correctly. That's the fastest I've ever seen Riley run. Eagles offense looking good! Moving the ball, much unlike the past two weeks. The up tempo pace is working and the Eagles move the ball into scoring position. Hey, a touchdown! Foles connects with Celek in the endzone for the score. First Eagles offensive TD since the Tampa Bay game. 7-0, Eagles.

Raiders take over and it's a big play for them. Rod Street streaks down the field for a big gain with the Eagles chasing him from down behind. Discouraging sign for an Eagles defense that has played well in recent weeks, but Philly locks them down in the redzone and forces the field goal. Bend but don't break! 7-3, Eagles.

Note: Damaris Johnson is active but not returning kicks or punts. It should be noted he did enter today's game with an injury.

Eagles second drive. Bryce Brown is showing up! And he's running north-south instead of east-west. Great stuff.


Eagles in scoring position. Nick Foles throws the fade to: you guessed it -- Riley Cooper! Perfect throw and catch. Also terrible coverage from Raiders CB D.J. Hayden. Great start for Foles so far. Nothing like the horrid performance from the Cowboys game. 14-3, Eagles.

An Earl Wolff blitz on the next Raiders series forces an intentional grounding from Pryor. Great call by Bill Davis. Raiders punt. DeSean Jackson on the return for a 32 yard gain! Nice play, but unfortunately Jackson grabbed the punter's face mask at the end of the play. Dumb. 15 yard penalty.

Eagles take over on offense and ANOTHER TOUCHDOWN WHAT IS HAPPENING? Nick Foles airs it out to Riley Cooper for a 63 yard touchdown! Is this real life? Once again, rookie CB Hayden was in coverage. You know what they say: you just can't stop the lethal Foles-Cooper connection. Joking aside, the duo have had a special connection. 21-3, Eagles.

Raiders take back over. And it's the Terelle Pryor show, folks. A 35 yard run that featured Pryor running circles around the entire Eagles defense set Oakland up in scoring position. Maybe not the best decision to blitz in that situation. Rashad Jennings nails it in for the TD on the following play. 21-10, Eagles.

Eagles driving. Foles doing a good job of moving the chains and finding the open guy. Just a beautiful drive by the Eagles offense. Foles caps it off with a touchdown pass to rookie TE Zach Ertz! It's the first TD for the rookie and it couldn't have come in a better place for him (Oakland is near Ertz's hometown). 4 drives, 4 touchdowns. My goodness. 28-10, Eagles.

Raiders on offense again but they don't have much going except for Pryor's incredible scrambling ability. When that only goes so far, it's a punt.

A Jason Avant drop on third down leads to the Eagles' first punt. He hasn't had the best year. Fortunately for the Eagles, there's a running into the kicker call. That makes it 4th and 1. The Eagles go for it... or not. They try to draw Oakland offsides but call a timeout when that doesn't work and punt instead.

More Pryor scrambling puts Oakland in position for a FG shortly before the first half is over. Sebastian Janikowski drills the 53 yarder with ease. 28-13, Eagles.


Eagles receive to start the second half. Deferring to receive in the first half doesn't look so bad, huh? Brandon Boykin almost breaks it big on the kick return! Too bad he gets tripped up by his own blocker. That could have went the distance.

Another drive, another touchdown! The Eagles offense is looking unstoppable. Chip Kelly might know a thing or two about offense after all, huh? Foles swing pass to LeSean McCoy is good for a 25 yard catch and run TOUCHDOWN. That's 5 touchdowns for Foles, for those counting at home. 35-13, Eagles.

After a Raiders drive stalls, the Eagles take over again. Andddd Nick Foles throws yet another touchdown. No big deal, that's only his SIXTH on the day. Only one shy of the record! DeSean Jackson was the wide open receiver on the play. This is crazy! 42-13, Eagles.

Oh, no big deal, just 6 TD passes from Foles

Later... another huge play! Foles to DeSean sets the Eagles up in the redzone. Effortless. Two players later, touchdown number seven! Nick Foles ties the NFL RECORD for passing touchdowns in a game. I don't even know what to say. 49-13, Eagles.

A Bradley Fletcher interception gives the Eagles another shot on offense. As if they needed that! Allen Barbre is in for Jason Peters at LT (questionable to return). Nothing going. Punt.


Garbage time! Connor Barwin picks off a tipped pass.

Eagles back on offense, but Foles' day is done. No record for Foles. Backups in, including Matt Barkley at QB.

Raiders garbage time TD with the Eagles backup defense in. 49-20, Eagles.

Final stat line for Foles: 22-of-28 (79%), 406 yards, 7 TDs, a perfect 158.3 QB rating. Yes, that's more touchdowns than incompletions.


NICK FOLES! What an amazing day. Nothing like his terrible outing against the Cowboys. It's nice to see the young Eagles QB bounce back in a major way. Throwing seven touchdowns and tying an NFL record is beyond ridiculous - in a good way of course.

Lots and lots and lots of credit to Chip Kelly, too. The Eagles coach faced heavy scrutiny the past two weeks. It will be interesting to see how his critics respond to this kind of performance.

And the Eagles defense! They did their job yet again. Pryor wasn't much of a passing threat but he was a tough cover due to his scrambling ability.

Awesome, awesome win. Feels so good.  4-5 and certainly not out of the playoff race yet.

Much more to come at BGN later. Stay tuned!
