Peyton's got company: Eagles QB Nick Foles throws 7 touchdowns

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles @NFoles8 threw seven touchdowns on Sunday. Just let that sentence wash over you.
Foles completed scoring passes of 2, 5, 15, 17, 25, 46, and 63 yards against a Raiders' secondary that couldn't stop falling over itself and left receivers open for days. Three of those touchdowns went to wide receiver Riley Cooper @RileyCooper_14. In the end, Foles completed 22 of 28 throws for 406. Yes, he had more touchdowns than incompletions. Foles became the seventh player in NFL history to throw seven touchdowns in a game and the second this year. Peyton Manning pulled it off against the Ravens in the first game of the regular season.

Fantasy Analysis:

The performance came with the facts that the Raiders had allowed four total touchdowns passes in their past four games, and Foles looked awful before leaving due to a concussion in his previous start back in Week 7. But hey, welcome to the NFL, where everything is apparently possible no matter what history says. Foles will start in Week 10 with a plus matchup against the Packers. But if you can somehow sell high on this incredible outing, feel free.

So in Foles 2 starts that he finished, he got 29 and 50 points in my league... and he did good in relief of Vick in week 5. How high would you rank Foles for the next couple weeks? Worth more than the super-spotty RG3 for as long as Vick is hurt at least?

I don't plan to take Romo out of my starting spot when I can help it... but when the Cowboys week 11 bye comes, Foles vs. Washington's D sounds pretty good to me.
