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

The backup quarterback connected three times with Riley Cooper to become the seventh passer 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.

Foles completed 22 of 28 passes as he frequently exploited mismatches and blown coverages, starting with a 42-yard screen pass to Cooper on the opening drive when the Raiders (3-5) had two defenders trying to match up with three receivers.


Foles tied the record with a 5-yard pass to Cooper with 4:28 remaining in the third quarter, matching the mark also held by Sid Luckman, Adrian Burk, George Blanda, Y.A. Tittle and Joe Kapp.

SEAHAWKS 27, BUCCANEERS 24, OT

SEATTLE — Steven Hauschka kicked a 27-yard field goal with 8:11 left in overtime, and the Seahawks overcame a 21-point deficit to beat the Buccaneers for their greatest comeback in franchise history.

Trailing 21-0, Russell Wilson rallied Seattle (8-1). He threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin with 1:51 left in regulation to pull the Seahawks even. Wilson then led Seattle on a nine-play, 51-yard drive in overtime capped by Hauschka’s winner.

Tampa Bay fell to 0-8 for the first time since 1985 when the Buccaneers started the season 0-9. Mike James rush for a career-best 158 yards for the Buccaneers.

CHIEFS 23, BILLS 13

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Sean Smith returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown and Tamba Hali scored on an 11-yard fumble return in the Chiefs’ win over Buffalo.

The defense made up for a sputtering offense that managed just 210 yards, and for its own deficiencies.

The Chiefs gave up a season-worst 470 yards to a Bills (3-6) offense that was led by undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel, making his first career start. Tuel finished 18 of 39 for 229 yards passing, including a 59-yard touchdown to Marquise Goodwin. Tuel, however, threw two interceptions that led to 10 points for the Chiefs.

Kansas City (9-0) remained the NFL’s only undefeated team and matched the best start in franchise history set in 2003.

The Chiefs held an opponent to 17 points or fewer for the ninth straight time — matching the NFL record set by the Atlanta Falcons in 1977.
