The Raiders started the game with the ball and the opening drive was a sign of things to come. It was saved from being a 3 and out only by Terrelle Pryor's sheer athleticism. He ran around keeping the play alive until Denarius Moore got open for a 30 yard catch and run. It was a lot of fun for that one play.

Unfortunately the Raiders could not do anything after the big play which ended up being a recurring theme on the day. The Eagles on the other hand had absolutely no problem moving the ball today. They proceeded to slice right through the Raiders and straight to the endzone. It was a 10 play, 84 yard drive to give the Eagles the lead 7-0.

The Raiders next drive included their best play of the day. Pryor hit Rod Streater who took it down the sidelines for 66 yards. They seemed like they had moved on well but then they couldn't capitalize on the big play. They had to settle for a field goal to make the score 7-3.

Philadelphia had no plans on field goals in this game. As soon as they had the ball back they ripped through the Raiders again. Nick Foles was straight up surgical in their next drive that covered 8 plays for 82 yards in all of 2 minutes and 45 seconds. The Eagles no huddle offense was unlike anything the Raiders had ever seen, even if they may have thought they knew what was coming before hand. Riley Cooper caught the TD on DJ Hayden to make the score 14-3.

The Raiders next drive was stalled when Pryor tried to run away from a sack and got an intentional grounding call. The play put them in a 3rd and long and they had ended up just punting it back to the Eagles. Just one play later and DJ Hayden was taken advantage of again by Riley Cooper for a 63 yard touchdown. Now the score was 21-3 Eagles.

Oakland still was not willing to give up yet though. They put together their best drive of the game and scored their only TD that wasn't in garbage time. They went 6 plays and 80 yards for a TD. Terrelle Pryor had a long run to set the Raiders up deep in Philly territory and then Rashad Jennings put it in for the score. It still seemed like it could be a game at 21-10.

Nick Foles made sure that it was not going to be a close game. He again was unstoppable while leading the Eagles to another score. This TD was on a 8 play and 80 yard drive and was capped off with a 15 yard pass to Rookie Zach Ertz. This was Nick's 4th pass and already was a career high for him and it wasn't even halftime.

The Raiders were able to put a nice little drive together at the end of the half though after trading punts on the previous two drives. They went 40 yards in 9 plays and then Sebastian Janikowski was able to put 3 points up to make the score 28-13 before the half.

The second half began and everything really imploded on the Raiders for this game. Within less than 4 minutes into the second half the Eagles scored two more touchdowns and made the score laughable at 42-13. Both came on TD passes from Nick Foles to continue his record tying day. One pass went to LeSean McCoy and one went to DeSean Jackson.

Foles threw for one last touchdown before being pulled from the game after tying the all time NFL record of 7 touchdowns in a single game. He left the game with 8 minutes left and still tied the record. The 7 TD's is also a record amount against the Raiders, breaking the former record of 6 held by Dan Fouts with the Chargers.

The Raiders then lost Terrelle Pryor to a possible knee injury, though with the score what it was there was no reason to chance anything. Matt McGloin came in and did manage to lead the Raiders to a garbage time touchdown. The score came by way of a run by Jeremy Stewart. Raiders blown out,49-20 and fall to 3-5.
