Late INT proves to be costly for Mark Sanchez, Eagles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez threw a costly interception that may have ruined Philadelphia's postseason hopes in a Week 16 loss to Washington.

Sanchez had a chance to break a 24-all tie but was picked off by Bashaud Breeland with 1:36 remaining in the game. He also lost a fumble on the opening drive of the game. Sanchez hooked up with Riley Cooper for a 3-yard score in the second quarter and again for 16-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

He compiled 374 yards through the air while completing 37 of 50 pass attempts. He added two touchdowns and one interception, registering a 99.9 passer rating in a 27-24 defeat.

With the loss, the Eagles need to win their final game against the Giants and have Dallas lose the final two games of the season in order to make the postseason.


Eagles QB Matt Barkley feels 'light years ahead of last year'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Eagles second-year quarterback Matt Barkley has thrown one pass this season and has not taken any first-team snaps in practice, reports Philly.com. But as the No. 2 quarterback behind Mark Sanchez, Barkley is an injury away from playing.

He said he feels ready, should that situation arise.

"I feel like I’ve grown a lot," Barkley told the webiste. "I have. My comfortability with the receivers and our personnel. The knowledge of the offense. I feel light years ahead of last year – that’s for sure."


Report: QB Nick Foles' collarbone only 70 percent healed


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles' broken collarbone is only 70 percent healed, and there's no way he'll play in either of the team's final two regular-season games, reports Sportsradio 94WIP. Foles suffered the injury Week 9.

Per the report, Mark Sanchez will finish out the regular season and Foles would only have a chance to return if Philly makes the playoffs.


Maybe Mark Sanchez not worth the trouble


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) When Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez threw for just 96 yards against the Seahawks in Week 14 after averaging 300.5 in his first four starts in place of Nick Foles, it was thought to be just a product of the matchup. After all, the Seahawks had allowed an average of 116.0 passing yards in their previous three games, looking once again like a world championship-caliber defense.

But with what seemed like a favorable matchup Week 15 against Dallas, a team that entered the week ranked 25th against the pass, Sanchez again laid an egg, but a different kind. He threw two interceptions with no touchdown passes, completing 17 of 28 passes for 252 yards.

Looking back at his numbers, Sanchez still seems to be as mistake-prone as ever. For all the success he's had replacing Foles, he has just 10 touchdown passes to nine interceptions. He's thrown two picks in four of his seven games this year.

The Eagles offense is prolific enough that he figures to have good yardage when he's not facing the Seahawks, but the interceptions could keep him from performing like a top-12 quarterback down the stretch. Of course, he's facing the Redskins in Week 16, who've allowed the most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season, but just how willing are you to gamble on something like that this time of year?


Don't lose faith in Mark Sanchez


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/11/2014) Mark Sanchez, who has started at quarterback for the Eagles since Nick Foles went down in Week 9, looked like he might be in for a rude awakening against the Seahawks last week, but 10 completions for 96 yards went beyond even the most pessimistic projections.

But again, he was facing the Seahawks, which counts for a lot more now than it did at the start of the season. They're back to playing world champion-caliber defense, allowing an average of 107.5 passing yards in their last four games. Yes, that's the average for a four-game stretch. They're making every quarterback look like Kurt Kittner.

Sanchez averaged 300.5 passing yards in his first four starts for the Eagles -- better even than what Foles was doing -- and leads one of the league's most explosive offenses. Prior to Week 14, the Eagles ranked fourth in both yards and points per game. You shouldn't be afraid to use him Week 15 against the Cowboys. They rank only 25th against the pass, allowing 251.9 yards per game, and he just put up 22 Fantasy points against them two weeks ago.

It doesn't mean you have to start him -- both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank at least 12 quarterbacks ahead of him for Week 15 -- but if you had gotten used to starting him, don't let his Week 14 performance be the reason you stop.


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez has a tough time Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez had a tough time Week 14 against the Seahawks.

Sanchez completed 10 of 20 passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns. He threw one interception and was sacked three times during the contest. Sanchez's first touchdown came as the result of a turnover. Following a fumbled punt, the Eagles took over at the 14 yard line. A few plays later, Sanchez found Jeremy Maclin on a 1 yard touchdown pass. His other score also came with somewhat of a short field. This time, though, Sanchez struck from 35 yards out, finding Zach Ertz on the play. Other than that, Sanchez was mostly limited against a rejuvenated Seahawks defense. Sanchez also had 7 rushing yards.

He'll take on the Cowboys Week 15. 


Not the week to start Mark Sanchez


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) With the way Mark Sanchez has performed since taking over as the Eagles quarterback in Week 9 -- contributing two touchdowns, either rushing or passing, in four of his five games -- you're probably itching to get him in your lineup even at a weak position. But Week 14 isn't the time to do it, not with the Seahawks coming to town.

The Seahawks rank third against the pass, giving up 199.4 yards per game and, even worse, have allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. They've been especially stifling lately, allowing less than 150 passing yards to the last three quarterbacks they've faced.

The Eagles have a prolific offense, ranking fourth in both yards and points per game, so they have as good a chance as any team of overcoming the numbers, but why force the issue at a position where you probably have a strong alternative?

Going by Jamey Eisenberg's and Dave Richard's rankings, you'd have to play in a 16-team league to consider starting Sanchez this week.


Eagles coach Chip Kelly: Nick Foles' collarbone not fully healed


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed that quarterback Nick Foles underwent a CT scan on Friday. He told reporters Monday that Foles' collarbone is healing, but not completely healed, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. He will be examined again before receiving clearance to play. A recent report from the Philadelphia Daily News has Foles sidelined for two-to-four weeks.

Due to the recent success of Mark Sanchez, it remains to be seen if Foles will regain the starting job in Philadelphia.


Report: Eagles QB Nick Foles will ramp up strengthening work


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles underwent a CT scan, which showed he's "healing as expected," a source told Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News on Friday. Bowen added Foles isn't ready to take a hit yet, but following Friday's CT scan, he will be cleared to start ramping up his strengthening work.

Foles has missed four consecutive games after suffering a broken collarbone Week 9 against Houston. A timetable for his return remains uncertain.


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez has big first half in easy win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez did almost all his damage in the first half of Thursday's 33-10 rout at Dallas, throwing for 202 yards and accounting for two touchdowns. He finished 20 of 29 for 217 yards and a touchdown and ran five times for 29 yards and another score.

After committing six turnovers in his previous two games, Sanchez did not have a turnover Thursday.

Sanchez came out on fire. He led the Eagles to 80- and 88-yard touchdown drives on their first two possessions. Sanchez capped the first march with a 2-yard keeper off a zone read, and he ended the second with a 27-yard scoring strike to rookie Jordan Matthews.

Sanchez plays the Seahawks in Week 14.


Eagles QB Nick Foles could have follow-up exam this week


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters that quarterback Nick Foles is expected to have a follow-up exam for his collarbone injury "this week or next week, I'm not sure." According to the Delaware County Daily Times, Foles is "doing good" in his recovery from the injury. 

Eagles QB Mark Sanchez posts third straight 300-yard game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez registered his third consecutive game with at least 300 passing yards, leading his team to a comfortable 43-24 victory over Tennessee in Week 12. Prior to this season, Sanchez never had two consecutive 300-yard games.

Sanchez hooked up with James Casey for a 14-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He compiled 307 yards through the air while completing 30 of 43 pass attempts. He added one touchdown, two interceptions and finished with a 78.3 passer rating. He has 1,187 passing yards with seven touchdowns and six interceptions this season.

Sanchez will look to make it four games in a row Thursday against Dallas.


Mark Sanchez puts up garbage-time points


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez ended up with decent numbers, but his second start in Week 11 against the Packers was mostly a disaster Sunday.

Sanchez finished the game with 21 Fantasy points, but most of that came after the game was already out of reach. He tossed both of his touchdowns in the second half with the Eagles down 30-plus points, after tossing a pair of ugly interceptions in the first half. He ended up completing 26 of 44 passes for 346 yards in the blowout loss.

Sanchez looked solid in his first start, but looked like the Mark Sanchez of old Sunday. He has six touchdowns in almost three full games since Nick Foles' injury, to go with four interceptions.

This Eagles offense looks like it can turn just about anyone into a productive Fantasy option, especially if they have to throw the ball 35-plus times. It might not be pretty, but Sanchez looks like he's in the right spot to remain Fantasy relevant down the stretch, even if you'll never feel great about starting him. 


Mark Sanchez throws for 332 yards, 2 TDs in first Eagles start


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez kept Chip Kelly's offensive machine rolling Monday night in his first start since replacing the injured Nick Foles. Sanchez hit 20 of 27 throws for 332 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers in a 45-21 pasting of the Panthers.

It was Sanchez's first 300-yard game since Nov. 22, 2012. He moved well in the pocket and took only one sack.

With his team leading 17-7, Sanchez led a 91-yard touchdown drive in which he completed five straight passes for 28, 17, 20, 20 and 13 yards. Four of those went to his favorite receiver, Jordan Matthews, including the 13-yard score.

Sanchez later found Matthews for an 18-yard touchdown, and he nearly had a 30-yard scoring pass to tight end Brent Celek. But Celek was ruled down inside the 1.

Sanchez posted a 102.5 passer rating. He visits the Packers in Week 11.


Eagles' Chip Kelly: Nick Foles will be re-evaluated in a month


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters that Nick Foles will be re-evaluated in approximately a month, according to the Philadelphia Daily News on Friday. The team will have a better sense of his timetable once he is re-evaluated. Kelly added that he's not sure if Foles will return as the starter, if he's back at any point this season.

"I have no idea. We could have no quarterbacks at that point in time," Kelly said.

Eagles' Kelly: 'I control the roster,' defends injured QB Nick Foles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly expressed his displeasure Thursday with the NJ.com report citing a source said general manager Howie Roseman has "kind of soured" on quarterback Nick Foles, who suffered a broken collarbone Sunday against the Texans.

“What I know is I control the roster, and you guys can say first hand: I don’t talk to anybody," Kelly said, per The Philadelphia Inquirer. "Whoever says they have a source with what’s going to go on with roster maneuvers or people going up, and people going down, then they’re never talking to the right person, but that comes from me, and that never was the case."

Kelly didn't stop there and even suggested Foles gets criticized too much.

"I have great faith in Nick and I think he’s a hell of a quarterback," Kelly said. "I think sometimes he gets banged too much, but I wish there was more people like Nick Foles in our lives."


Eagles backup QB Matt Barkley better prepared in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Eagles backup quarterback Matt Barkley said Wednesday he is far more prepared to play this season than he was as a rookie in 2013, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. Barkley is now the team's backup quarterback to Mark Sanchez since Nick Foles is sidelined several weeks due to a collarbone injury.

"I've progressed so much since when the public saw me last year," Barkley said. "Even from a health standpoint, my shoulder is finally healed. My [throwing] motion is back to where it should be.

"I've grown a lot this offseason in terms of overall position in the offense. I'm accustomed to what [Eagles coach Chip Kelly's] mindset is and how he wants quarterbacks to play. It's definitely a big difference from 2013.''


Report: Nick Foles won't need surgery, might be back in six weeks


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles doesn't need surgery on his fractured collarbone, a source told FOX Sports. The hope is that he will return to action in six weeks.

Foles suffered the injury in the first quarter Sunday and was replaced by Mark Sanchez, who led Philadelphia to a 31-21 win against Houston.


Eagles coach Chip Kelly: Nick Foles has a crack in his clavicle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters that starting quarterback Nick Foles has a crack in his clavicle and is undergoing an MRI to determine the extent of the injury, per the team's official website. According to an earlier report from CBSSports.com NFL insider Jason La Canfora, Foles could miss four-to-six weeks while recovering from the injury.

"There's a crack in the clavicle and we don't know the extent," Kelly said during his news conference.

The team will turn to Mark Sanchez for the time being. Sanchez completed 15 of 22 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns, while also tossing a pair of interceptions in a Week 9 victory over the Texans.


Mark Sanchez shows competence in relief


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Backup quarterback Mark Sanchez took over at quarterback for the Eagles following Nick Foles' injury in Week 9 against the Texans and the offense kept running, just as it is designed to.

Foles did a solid job last season running Chip Kelly's offense, but there was always the thought that he was a product of the system more than anything. And, though Sunday's performance by Sanchez isn't necessarily confirmation of that, it's not like Sanchez looked all that much worse than Foles.

Sanchez completed 15 of 22 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns, while also tossing a pair of interceptions. Those numbers aren't far off what Foles had in the game and overall this season, which isn't really a surprise. As bad as Sanchez has been in his career, Kelly's offense in Philadelphia is designed to put quarterbacks in good position to succeed.

There probably isn't much of a reason to rush out and grab Sanchez, who has never been much of a Fantasy option in his career. However, with six teams on bye and quarterbacks like Andrew Luck, Philip Rivers and Tom Brady out, Sanchez just might be worth a flier for Week 10 against a Panthers defense that is giving up 21.2 Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season.


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez comes through in defeat of Texans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Eagles backup quarterback Mark Sanchez was shaky after a strong start against Houston on Sunday in relief of injured starter Nick Foles. But he saved his best for last.

Sanchez opened with a flourish, firing a 52-yard strike to sizzling veteran wideout Jeremy Maclin and adding an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Matthews. He was 8 for 9 for 111 yards at halftime, but he had also thrown an interception by then and continued to flirt with picks after intermission. He was fortunate that the Texans dropped two on one third quarter possession.

He did come through when needed, however, firing an 8-yard score to Maclin with 3:50 remaining in the game to clinch the victory. Sanchez finished 15 of 22 for 202 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

If Nick Foles is indeed out with a clavicle injury, as has been widely speculated, Sanchez will be under center when Philadelphia hosts Carolina next Monday night.


Nick Foles a prolific passer, if nothing else


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/28/2014) Part of me thinks Nick Foles is just a two-bit hack and the poster child for right place, right time. But as I noted in my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog, another part of me can't help but marvel at his 62 pass attempts in Week 8. It's not like the Eagles were chasing the Cardinals all day, reluctant to run for fear of getting left behind. In fact, LeSean McCoy had 21 carries. It's just that Chip Kelly's offense is capable of cramming so many plays into 60 minutes that Foles is going to be in for some wacky numbers at times.

I predict Week 8 won't be his last 400-yard game this season. What about Week 9 at Houston? Well, that has the makings of a high-scoring game. The Texans have averaged 27.0 points in their last three games and don't generally fare well against the pass, giving up 271.4 yards per game, fifth-most in the league.

Between Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard, Jamey ranks Foles higher for Week 9, slotting him 12th among quarterbacks. But I might move him ahead of Andy Dalton, Tony Romo and Carson Palmer myself.


Nick Foles posts third career 400-yard game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles put the ball up a career-high 62 times in the Week 8 loss at Arizona after never having thrown more than 48 times in any previous game. Foles completed 36 of those passes for 411 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions.

It was Foles' third career 400-yard game, and his fourth game over 300 yards this season.

Foles, who rushed twice for 14 yards, continues to struggle with accuracy and decision-making. He had a pair of ill-advised throws picked off by Cards cornerback Antonio Cromartie. Foles threw 21- and 54-yard touchdowns to Jeremy Maclin, by far his favorite receiver with 16 targets.

Foles has accounted for 12 touchdowns and 12 turnovers entering Week 9 at Houston.


Eagles' Kelly: Nick Foles' footwork issues are 'fixable'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) After watching film of Sunday's 34-28 win against the Rams, Eagles coach Chip Kelly offered up his analysis of why quarterback Nick Foles has had a lot of passes get away from him when he throws off his back foot.

"I think sometimes when it happens, there's a rush, and he's trying to slide to the right or slide to the left, not setting his feet when he slides," Kelly said Monday, per the Philadelphia Daily News. "In terms of staying on top of it, staying in a good platform to throw the ball.

"I think it's fixable. It's just a matter of drill work, fundamentals, doing a lot of movement drills."

Kelly tried to explain also why Foles seemed to have better accuracy in 2013, when he tossed 27 touchdowns and two interceptions. He also completed 64 percent of his passes last season compared to 59.1 percent this season.

"I don't think we had as much pressure last year, to be honest with you," Kelly said. "I still think it's a combination of things. Sometimes it's little fundamental things, and we all gotta go back to work, and I think he understands that."


Lack of big plays hurting Nick Foles


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles' numbers shielded him from some criticism early in the season, but his production has fallen off over the last few games. Is this cause for concern?

Foles bounced back from last week's pitiful effort, but still passed for just 207 yards, a far cry from the first three games of the season, when he averaged 326 passing yards per game. He has been missing the big play over the last two games, averaging just 5.0 yards per attempt with long plays of just 24 and 22 yards through the passing game -- Foles averaged 7.95 yards per attempt through three games, with plays of 50, 57 and 68 yards.

The big play has been an integral part of Foles' success since taking over as the starter last season, but he had some trouble completing long passes early. Whether he is gun-shy or this is just a bad stretch, Foles will have to find that part of his game if Fantasy owners are to rely on him.

Foles faces a tough test in Week 6, with the Giants on the schedule. They have allowed 20-plus Fantasy points to quarterbacks just twice in five games, and just held Matt Ryan to one score.
