General News (Fri Nov 21): is out for this week's game.

General News (Wed Nov 19): is out for this week's game.

General News (Tue Nov 18): cracked his clavicle in Week 8 and is expected to miss at least another month, but head coach Chip Kelly said there have been no recent updates on his condition. "No," Kelly said. "He'll get a re-check at some point in time, but they said it's usually three to four weeks out before they ever take another x-ray. So he has not had that done yet." Foles has been working out, but not in game conditions.

Week 12: vs Tennessee Titans

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Mark Sanchez kept the pedal to the metal at Green Bay, slinging 26/44 for 346 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions, with three sacks taken for -26 yards during the 20-53 loss. Sanchez did his part, the pass D simply couldn't withstand Aaron Rodgers and company. Over the past two games, Sanchez has compiled 46/70 for 678 yards passing, four TDs and two interceptions thrown. He's relied heavily on Jordan Matthews (17 targets for 12/275/3 receiving), while also firing the ball to Jeremy Maclin (18 targets for 12/131/1 receiving) on a regular basis. Tight ends Zach Ertz (eight for 5/72/0) and Brent Celek (nine for 6/127/0) have also figured in the mix fairly prominently. The Eagles' passing attack is flying along on an even keel entering the final weeks of the 2014 season. The Tennessee pass D is ranked ninth in the NFL averaging 226.9 net passing yards allowed per game, with 15 passing scores given up vs. nine interceptions and 29 sacks generated to date (15th- and sixth-ranked in the NFL, respectively). They allowed 21/32 for 180 yards, one TD and one interception, with five sacks for -27 yards, to the Steelers last week, after holding Joe Flacco to 16/27 for 161 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions two games ago. The Tennessee rush D is so bad that teams generally concentrate their attacks in that phase of the game, which is reflected in the low passing yards totals over the past two games. This is a neutral matchup for Sanchez and company, at home in Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs HOU (10 / 13 / 124 / 1 / 1 pass, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

Foles started the game off with his normal short pass to Jordan Matthews for 5 yards on a swing pass. On the other two plays of the series Foles was feeling the pressure from the Texans defensive line. On the next drive Foles was a little more relaxed and had some extra time in the pocket and delivered a strike to Maclin for a first down and came back and used his running backs McCoy and Sproles for dump off passes of 6 and 5 yards. Foles threw a perfect pass to Maclin in stride for a 59 yard touchdown pass which he put enough air under it for Maclin just to race to the ball and make the catch. On the very next play on the next possession Foles threw a pass to Riley Cooper which he did the opposite of Maclin and under threw the ball severely and the Texans returned the interception for a touchdown. On the next drive he seemed to settle down a little and delivered back to back nice passes to Riley Cooper for 13 yard gains each helping to move the ball down the field. Foles day came to an end as he was sacked twice in three plays by Whitney Mercilus and on the second sack was driven into the ground right on his shoulder and ended up heading into the locker room after the play.

Eagles | Nick Foles to be examined (Mon Nov 24, 11:26 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone) is due for an examination in the next two weeks. His recovery is going well, according to a source.

Our View: Mark Sanchez has been doing a good job as the team's starter while Foles has been out. In two weeks, we'll have a better idea if Foles could be available to come back at some point later in the season.

Eagles | Week 12 Inactives (Sun Nov 23, 11:30 AM) - The Philadelphia Eagles have declared OT Dennis Kelly, DB Jaylen Watkins, WR Jeff Maehl, OG Julian Vandervelde, QB Nick Foles, CB Rashad Carmichael, DE Taylor Hart inactive for Week 12.

Eagles | Nick Foles throws during warmups (Wed Nov 19, 02:50 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone) did some throwing during warmups Wednesday, Nov. 19, but did not participate in practice.

Our View: There's no word on Foles' timetable right now. If Mark Sanchez performs well, there's no guarantee that Foles would even come back to a starting job. It's a good sign that he's throwing, but it's no indication of how quickly he'll be back on the field. It's a step in the process....but we're still early in that process.

Eagles | No updates on Nick Foles (Tue Nov 18, 02:01 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone), who cracked his clavicle in Week 8, is expected to miss at least another month, but head coach Chip Kelly said there have been no recent updates on his condition. No, Kelly said. Hell get a re-check at some point in time, but they said its usually three to four weeks out before they ever take another x-ray. So he has not had that done yet. Foles has been working out, but not in game conditions.

Our View: We could see Foles shut down for a month or more. In the meantime, Mark Sanchez will continue as the starter for the Eagles.
