Eagles vs. Raiders: Takeaways from Oakland’s 49-20 Loss to Philadelphia

The Oakland Raiders had a chance to get to .500 and build some momentum for the second half of the season. Instead, they turned Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles into a legend and suffered a 49-20 loss to the Eagles that may change how people view coach Dennis Allen’s team.

Foles repeatedly smoked the Raiders defense to the tune of an NFL-record-tying seven touchdown passes. Oakland rarely got a hand on Foles or his receivers, allowing the Eagles to snap out of their offensive funk in a big way.

Injuries to quarterback Terrelle Pryor and running back Darren McFadden only made things worse for the Raiders, who fell to 3-5.

Here are some of the top takeaways from Oakland’s loss to Philadelphia.
