    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 9

    Nick Foles PHI - QB 2013 vs. Oakland 22–for-28 passing, 406 yards, 7 TD passes, 0 INTs Not to be outdone by Peyton Manning in Week 1 of last season, Foles matched the Bronco signal-caller's NFL record-tying seven TD pass performance in a 49-20 Week 9 rout of the Oakland Raiders.

    The seven TD tosses also contributed to a run of 19 straight touchdown passes by Foles without an interception. Ultimately, he would throw his first pick of the season in the midst of driving snow against Detroit in Week 14, leaving him one scoring throw shy of Peyton Manning's NFL-record of 20.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
