Eagles quarterback Nick Foles celebrates after throwing a touchdown pass to wide receiver Riley Cooper during the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Raiders in Oakland. Foles threw seven TDs in the 49-20 Eagles victory.

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 Raiders on Sunday in Oakland.

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.

Colts 27, Texans 24: Houston coach Gary Kubiak collapsed leaving the field at halftime and was taken by ambulance to a hospital, and the Colts rallied for a victory over the Texans in Houston.

Kubiak hunched over and dropped to his knees at the 24 yard line and was immediately surrounded by medical personnel. He was lifted off the field on a stretcher and taken by gurney to the ambulance.

The Texans didn't say what was wrong with Kubiak, but did say he didn't have a heart attack. The team said the 52-year-old coach was conscious and was with his family as he was taken to the hospital.

Andrew Luck got off to a slow start before throwing three second-half touchdowns to T.Y. Hilton to overcome an 18-point halftime deficit and give the AFC-South-leading Colts (6-2) the victory.

Case Keenum threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns in his second career start, but had trouble moving the offense after halftime as the Texans, up 21-3 when Kubiak collapsed, lost their sixth straight game after opening the season 2-0 with Super Bowl hopes.

Houston had a chance to tie it, but Randy Bullock's 55-yard field goal attempt as time expired sailed wide left.

Seahawks 27, Buccaneers 24, OT: 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 in Seattle.

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.

Chiefs 23, Bills 13: 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 the Bills in Orchard Park, N.Y.

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.

Jets 26, Saints 20: Nick Folk remained perfect this season by kicking four field goals, Rex Ryan's defense held Drew Brees and the high-scoring Saints to six points in the second half, and New York had seven plays of at least 19 yards in an upset of the Saints in East Rutherford, N.J.

Ryan is now 7-3 against his brother, Rob, and the Jets (5-4) maintained their string of alternating wins and losses. They tied the 2005 New England Patriots for the longest such string to begin a season, according to STATS.

Browns 24, Ravens 18: Jason Campbell threw three touchdown passes – two to Davone Bess – and the Browns ended an 11-game losing streak against the Ravens in Cleveland.

Campbell's 3-yard pass to Bess on fourth down with three minutes left helped the Browns (4-5) seal their first win over Baltimore since 2007.

The Ravens (3-5) lost their third straight and didn't win in the week following a bye for the first time in six tries under coach John Harbaugh.

Patriots 55, Steelers 31: Tom Brady threw for season highs of 432 yards and four touchdowns, Rob Gronkowski had a career-high nine receptions and the Patriots racked up the most points ever scored against the Steelers in Foxborough, Mass.

Brady had 252 yards passing in the first half, more than he had in five of his other eight games for New England (7-2).

New England piled up 610 yards overall, third most in team history.

Cowboys 27, Vikings 23: Tony Romo threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds left, and the Cowboys beat the Vikings in Arlington, Texas.

Romo's 7-yard pass to Harris answered an 11-yard touchdown by Adrian Peterson that had given Minnesota a 23-20 lead. The East Texas kid raised on the Cowboys (5-4) had 140 yards rushing in his first game at their $1.2 billion stadium.

Panthers 34, Falcons 10: Cam Newton threw for one touchdown and ran for another to overcome a shaky start, the defense intercepted Matt Ryan three times and Carolina beat the Falcons in Charlotte, N.C., for its fourth straight victory.

Newton had two first half interceptions and wasn't sharp on his deep balls, regularly overthrowing his receivers. Yet he bounced back to throw for 249 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown pass to tight end Greg Olsen. He also ran for an 8-yard touchdown for the Panthers (5-3).

Redskins 30, Chargers 24, OT: Darrel Young scored three times, including a 4-yard run in overtime that gave the Redskins a win over the Chargers in Lancdover, Md.

Young stormed his way into the end zone 6:01 into the extra period, with the Redskins scoring on their first drive after winning the coin toss at the end of regulation.

Titans 28, Rams 21: Chris Johnson ran for 150 yards and two touchdowns and the Titans got the best of Jeff Fisher, who coached them for 16 seasons, and the Rams in St. Louis.

Johnson's 19-yard scoring run snapped a tie with 2:54 to go and came a snap after Jurrell Casey sacked and stripped quarterback Kellen Clemens, and Derrick Morgan recovered.
