Sanchez, Sproles Lead Eagles Past Panthers

Sanchez, Sproles Lead Eagles Past Panthers

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- Mark Sanchez made his first start with the Eagles (7-2) and lead his team to a 45-21 victory over the Panthers (3-6-1) on Monday night.

Sanchez threw for 332 yards and two touchdowns, and the Eagles defense did the rest of the work.

Philadelphia sacked Panthers quarterback Cam Newton nine times and forced five turnovers with three picks in the rout.  

Darren Sproles capped off a terrific first quarter with a 65-yard punt return to give the Eagles a 17-7 lead.

"Just an outstanding performance by all three phases," Sanchez said.

Newton and the Panthers have now lost four in a row.

"We've got to do things better," Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. "I have to coach better, coaches have to coach better, we have to practice better and then go out and play better. And we're going to do it together as a team."

ESPN: Eagles Quarterback Nick Foles Has Broken Collarbone

ESPN: Eagles Quarterback Nick Foles Has Broken Collarbone

Rich Shultz/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- If the Philadelphia Eagles hope to win their second-consecutive NFC East crown, it'll have to be on the shoulders of backup quarterback Mark Sanchez. ESPN reports quarterback Nick Foles has suffered a broken collarbone and is out indefinitely.

Foles suffered the injury on Sunday during the team's win over the Houston Texans when he was taken down by linebacker Whitney Mercilus.

Last season, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered the same injury and missed seven games.

Replacing Foles as the starting quarterback is former New York Jet Mark Sanchez, who in relief of Foles completed 15 of 22 passes for 202 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

"Since Day 1 here, you know what type of professional [Sanchez] is. ...We were fortunate when Nick did go down, we were able to bring Mark in," Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said. "I don't think we missed a beat."

Fortunately for the Eagles, they are 6-2 and are in first place in the NFC East.

Sanchez Leads Eagles In Relief of Injured Foles

Sanchez Leads Eagles In Relief of Injured Foles

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(HOUSTON, TX) -- Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback Nick Foles injured his non-throwing shoulder in the first quarter against the Houston Texans.

Mark Sanchez took over and led the Eagles to a high-flying 31-21 victory over the Texans.

Sanchez entered the game and immediately led the Eagles on a scoring drive.  On his first play he connected with Jeremy Maclin for a 52-yard gain.  A few plays later he found rookie Jordan Matthews for his first touchdown pass since December 2012.

The former first-round pick of the New York Jets finished the day 15-22 for 202 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Aiding the effort was the Eagles defense, as they harassed Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, sacking him four times and intecepting him once.

The Eagles are now 6-2 with an upcoming matchup against the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football.
