The Eagles announced today that Nick Foles has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week award after his record-setting seven-touchdown performance against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
Foles, 24, completed the game with 22 completions on 28 attempts for 406 yards with a franchise and NFL-record seven touchdown passes. Foles accomplished all of this in three quarters only having the ball for 15:56.
To put "seven touchdown passes" into perspective: the Raiders entered the game with seven total touchdown passes as a team - Foles matched that in one game, right in front of them. Along with the Raiders, the Vikings and Jaguars didn't have seven total touchdown passes through Week 9, either.
Foles was just the third quarterback, along with Peyton Manning and Y.A. Tittle, to throw seven touchdown passes in a game without throwing a single interception. He became the first quarterback to throw seven touchdowns in three quarters and Foles only played one series in the fourth before being pulled from the game hoping to avoid injury.
He is just the third quarterback in Eagles history to be named NFC Offensive Player of the Week multiple times in the same season joining Donovan McNabb in 2000 and Michael Vick in 2010.
