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 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 charged with four turnovers Week 11


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez completed 26 of 44 throws for 346 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 53-20 loss at Green Bay. But he also threw two interceptions, including a pick-six, and was credited with two lost fumbles.

Sanchez telegraphed a short pass to tight end Brent Celek in the third quarter. Packers defensive end Julius Peppers picked it off easily and returned it 52 yards for a touchdown. Sanchez also was intercepted when he tried to throw out of bounds but didn't get enough on the ball.

One of Sanchez's fumbles occurred when LeSean McCoy failed to secure the handoff. On the other, Sanchez couldn't handle a high shotgun snap and Packers corner Casey Hayward scooped up the loose ball for a 49-yard score.

Sanchez, who threw second-half scores to Jordan Matthews and Jeremy Maclin, posted his 10th career 300-yard game and the second highest yardage output of his career. However, he overthrew several open receivers. He'll try for a better performance Week 12 against the Titans.


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' Maclin: 'The sky is the limit' for QB Mark Sanchez


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) The support continues to pour in for Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez, who takes over as Philadelphia's starting quarterback with Nick Foles sidelined. Sanchez is remembered for his struggles toward the end of his tenure with the Jets, but Eagles teammate Jeremy Maclin is the latest player or coach to show confidence in Sanchez.

"The Mark Sanchez I knew when he got here was the quarterback that led [the Jets] to two straight AFC championship games," Maclin said Wednesday, per the New York Post. "He was a quarterback who won at this level as a very high draft pick and did very well with what he was given in New York. 

"Mark can play, man. There’s no question about it. He’s also surrounded by a lot more talent than what he had in New York, so the sky’s the limit."

Stephen Hill, who is a former teammate of Sanchez with the Jets and is now on the Panthers' practice squad, chimed in as well. He said Sanchez shouldn't have any issues with Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense. Sanchez makes his first start of the season Monday against Carolina.

"He gets the ball out of his hands quickly," Hill said, per ESPN. "That's going to be a big deal, especially for our defense." 


Eagles 'feel very confident' with Mark Sanchez at quarterback


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly offered his support Monday for quarterback Mark Sanchez, who takes over as the starter after Nick Foles suffered a broken collarbone Sunday against the Texans.

"I feel great about Mark. We felt great about him all along," Kelly said. "I always said you need two quarterbacks. ...I thought he did a great job in our system. He played outstanding in the preseason and showed no rust when he got in there against Houston yesterday. We feel real confident. We feel obviously really bad for Nick that he’s out, but we feel very confident in Mark if we have to go in that direction."

Sanchez completed 15 of 22 passes for 202 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in relief of Foles during a 31-21 win Sunday.

"We didn't change anything," Kelly said of the Texans game. "He can run everything."


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.


La Canfora: Nick Foles breaks clavicle, Sanchez time for Eagles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles suffered a broken clavicle in Sunday's win over the Texans and wil undergo a full MRI Monday, CBSSports.com NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports.

Foles is expected to miss four-to-six weeks while recovering from the injury, and a more specific timetable should be known after Monday's MRI. Per La Canfora, coach Chip Kelly is very comfortable with backup quarterback Mark Sanchez, so if the former USC Trojan rises to the occasion, the team could move forward with Sanchez under center.

The Eagles sit at 6-2 in sole possession of first place in the NFC East.


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, Mark Sanchez to sit preseason finale; Matt Barkley gets starting nod


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed that Nick Foles and backup Mark Sanchez will sit out the preseason finale, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia reports. Matt Barkley will get the nod Thursday against the Jets.

Mark Sanchez lighting up preseason


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez is 18 of 22 for 196 yards and two touchdowns through two preseason games. He threw just one incompletion Friday night against the Patriots, posting a 112.2 passer rating, reports ESPN.com.

It would take a lot for the Eagles to consider trading Sanchez.

"You better have two quarterbacks in this league," coach Chip Kelly said. "So I think unless something blows you out of the water, we're real confident with Mark starting a game if we need it. ... We need him."


Chip Kelly says Mark Sanchez 'has been outstanding'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez "has been outstanding since he's been here," coach Chip Kelly told reporters. "I think he's starting to feel more comfortable in terms of what we’re trying to do."

Sanchez has played so well that there's no question he's the No. 2 QB, according to The Star-Ledger. "Every day he's here," Kelly said, "there is an energy you can feed off of from him."


Site predicts Mark Sanchez to back up Nick Foles


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Mark Sanchez will battle Matt Barkley for the backup quarterback job behind Nick Foles in camp this summer. But ESPN says to "put your money on Sanchez" winning the No. 2 spot, suggesting that the Eagles wouldn't have even signed him if he was going to be their emergency quarterback. 

Chip Kelly: Mark Sanchez signing a 'no-brainer'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he's excited about the addition of quarterback Mark Sanchez, who's expected to back up Nick Foles.

"I've said many times that we will always look to add quality players at the quarterback position," Kelly said. ""We consider it a key position in this game, so having the chance to add Mark to that group was a no-brainer for us.

"Mark has started 68 games in his career and has taken his teams deep into the playoffs multiple times, so we really like what he brings to the table from an experience standpoint. I also had the chance to see Mark play in college and have always had respect for his game and athletic ability."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"Coach Kelly really is on the cutting edge of the NFL. He's one of those guys who has a really exciting vision for the future. I think he is on a constant pursuit of a competitive edge. He's an excitable person. I think as an offensive mind, I'm going to do nothing but learn here."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Less than a week after Michael Vick left for the Jets, the Eagles are expected to sign Sanchez according to the report, assuming he makes it through his physical without issue. Sanchez missed all of last season due to a torn right labrum, and was cut by the Jets following the Vick signing.

Kelly interested in Mark Sanchez


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/26/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Wednesday at the NFL owners meetings that he likes free agent quarterback Mark Sanchez as a potential replacement for Michael Vick, who signed with the Jets. Sanchez was cut by the Jets last week.

"We lost Mike, and we're always trying to look in that backup position behind Nick (Foles) and what we can do to bolster it," Kelly said. "We'll see where we go. It's a position of need for us. We played three quarterbacks last year, and I don't think you can ever look at your roster and say you're good at quarterback. 

"Mark is a very, very good athlete. He's started 60 some-odd games in this league. He's got great experience. There's a lot of positive qualities with him."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher confirmed the team is interested in quarterback Mark Sanchez, who was cut loose by the Jets last week. "I'd say that there is interest. I can't say how much, but there certainly would be interest,'' Fisher told USA Today. "I don't have a backup with experience on the roster right now.''

Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer worked with Sanchez when both were with the Jets. Sanchez would seem an ideal backup to Sam Bradford.

"Brian had a good relationship with Mark,'' Fisher said. "He's just learning. He's been to the AFC Championship game a couple of times, so he's been there.''
