Blog Photo - Nick Foles throws 7 touchdown passesThe Eagles offense the last few weeks have looked nothing like Chip Kelly's dreams. Playing a not terrible Oakland defense, most weren't particularly optimistic about them this week. Whoops.

Seemingly out of nowhere, Nick Foles returned to the lineup from injury and was brilliant. Historically brilliant. Foles went 22/28 for 406 yards and 7 (yes, 7) touchdowns. Not surprisingly, the Eagles won easily 49-20. The 7 touchdowns tie an NFL record with six other passers: Joe Kapp, Y.A. Tittle, George Blanda, Adrian Burk, Sid Luckman, and Peyton Manning (from Week 1 of this season).

More than likely Foles is going to be the "he did what?" of that list, but maybe this is the spark for the Eagles offense going forward, and it will start to look a little like Chip Kelly's Oregon attacks.
