"Thanks for bringing up a good memory," guard Stefen Wisniewski said sarcastically in the locker room this week.
Wisniewski was reminded that he was the Raiders' starting center on November 3, 2013 when quarterback Nick Foles tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes in the win over Oakland.
"I didn't know much about him, no, but after that game, I knew he was a pretty darn good quarterback," said Wisniewski, who is questionable for the Christmas night game with an ankle injury that forced him to miss last week's win against the Giants. "As the game's going, you're not thinking about it obviously. When you look back on it, you're like, 'Did that guy throw a ridiculous amount of touchdowns passes?'"
The Eagles scored 21 points in both the second and third quarters. It was 49-13 after Foles' record-tying seventh touchdown pass in the third quarter. Foles played one series in the fourth quarter before watching the rest of the game from the sideline.
"Honestly, we got our butt kicked a lot that year but that was probably the worst one. In the second quarter, the game was kind of already over. We were down by four touchdowns or whatever," Wisniewski recalled. "At that point, it's not a lot of fun to be on the other team. It's just trying to put some good effort in, try to finish, not look bad, and not hurt yourself. Those are definitely not fun to be on the other side of.
"It was a bad day from the Raiders' perspective, obviously. ... It's not one you brag about too much."
