Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 17 vs PHI (9 / 17 / 85 / 0 / 2 pass, 2 / 0 / 0 rush)

Dallas rolled out all three quarterbacks in the regular season finale against the Eagles. Sanchez saw more than two quarters of action, more than Dak Prescott or Tony Romo, in mop-up duty. Sanchez had moments of clarity to his game, including a roll-out deep out pass to Brice Butler - a stick throw in the perfect location. Sanchez also added a seam pass to Cole Beasley, dropping the ball in the bucket for a long reception. However, Sanchez logged a number of inaccurate throws and poor decisions. One of his interceptions was a tipped screen pass attempt at the line of scrimmage, but he also was inaccurate into tight coverage on a crossing route to Gavin Escobar for a turnover. With two minutes to play and down seven points, Sanchez ended the game by going sack, poor throw, and sack.

Bears | One-year deal for Mark Sanchez (Thu Mar 23, 09:48 PM) - Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Mark Sanchez's deal is for one year. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Our View: Sanchez is no lock for the 53-man roster. He'll serve as a veteran backup behind newly acquired Mike Glennon. Expect the Bears to add a QB via the 2017 NFL draft too....maybe with a premium pick.

Bears | Chicago adding Mark Sanchez (Thu Mar 23, 09:08 PM) - Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Cowboys) is finalizing a deal with the Chicago Bears Thursday, March 23, according to a source.

Our View: Sanchez is an all right backup, but the former USC quarterback is a long way from a starter. At most, he's the Bears' reliable backup to Mike Glennon and if they have to break the glass to bring him out, things will be very grim.

Bears | Mark Sanchez visiting Bears Thursday (Tue Mar 21, 11:54 PM) - Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Cowboys) will visit the Chicago Bears Thursday, March 23.

Our View: The Bears signed Mike Glennon to be their starting quarterback earlier this offseason. They lost Matt Barkley (49ers) in free agency, so they're looking for a backup. If added, Sanchez would give them veteran depth behind Glennon.
