From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 23): All of the talk of Sanchez having a chance to hold off a healthy Sam Bradford (when he's recovered) vanished against Tampa Bay. Sanchez wasn't terrible for fantasy, and the nature of the Eagles offense means he's still viable against a tough Lions defense on Thanksgiving, but he and the Eagles offense in general is not trustworthy.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 11 vs TB (26 / 41 / 261 / 2 / 3 pass, 2 / 14 / 0 rush)

The Good. The Bad. The Sanchez. Chip Kelly's group came into Sunday favored by 6.5 points and got blown out by four times that amount. Three interceptions certainly didn't help. But this was a clinic on how not to play defense and how not to respond offensively when your defense is getting pummeled on the ground and shredded through the air. The unfortunate thing about an ugly, terrible loss like this one is how good the Eagles looked to open the game. They strung together a series of five first downs off the opening kickoff in route to a score and a seven point lead. All this despite DeMarco Murray fumbling the ball on his first carry of the game. The Buccaneers would then proceed to rattle off 21 unanswered points and ultimately take a 28-14 lead into a halftime. It was in the second half that the Eagles defense would be exposed. The Buccaneers put together a 9:47 touchdown drive and held Sanchez and Co. out of the endzone for the rest of the game. The Eagles offense had no chance of recovering and looked like a different team than what took the field to open the game. They managed only 10 first downs in the second half and a lopsided time of possession and turnover battle. In the end, it was a horrible showing for a home team in a battle for the NFC East. They've now lost two of their last three games and there's not much to suggest that things are going to get better anytime soon.

2015 Week 10 vs MIA (14 / 23 / 156 / 0 / 1 pass, 2 / 4 / 0 rush)

In relief of Bradford, Mark Sanchez got his first action of the season. Under his control, the Eagles would only score three more points. On his first play, he dumped off to Ryan Mathews who was able to turn up the field for 17 yards. Things got messy from there. Sanchez had problems at the mesh point when attempting handoffs, and even tripped up DeMarco Murray on one attempt. He wasn't on the same page with his receivers, often throwing to open areas of the field where no one was, or throwing at the backs of his receivers when they weren't looking. But most of that can be excused by limited or no practice reps with the first team offense. Given the situation, he played well and kept his team in the game. Chip Kelly immediately went to a read-option approach and Sanchez responded positively. He kept plays alive with his legs when plays broke down. He looked sharp in the pocket when the protection was there. With his first possession of the fourth quarter, he navigated the offense into scoring position and would have regained the lead on beautiful touchdown pass to Ertz on a rollout off of play-action. Unfortunately, the score was erased by offsetting penalties and the Eagles settled for a field goal. Late in the game, setup with great field position, Sanchez completed three passes on three attempts to chew up 32 yards and moved into scoring position down by one point. On second down at the nine yard line, Sanchez stared down Miles Austin and tossed an ugly interception. He had an opportunity to win the game with 1:40 remaining. After three straight incompletions, which included Austin not looking for a pass, and two drops by other receivers, Sanchez failed to throw the fourth down pass beyond the first down marker. All things being equal, with a full week of practice he might just give this offense a spark should Bradford miss time.

Eagles | Sam Bradford had memory loss (Tue Nov 24, 02:35 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) had 'some memory loss' after sustaining a concussion in Week 10, and he also said his separated left shoulder could keep him out again versus the Detroit Lions in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 26. '(The decision depends on) how it progresses from here to game time,' Bradford said, 'and whether myself and the coaches feel comfortable with me out there playing. It feels better today than it did yesterday. If it continues to progress, I'd like to be out there.' Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Bradford looked good in practice Monday, Nov. 23. QB Mark Sanchez will start again if Bradford isn't ready.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez may start again (Mon Nov 23, 01:51 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez appears to be the leading candidate to start in the Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions Thursday, Nov. 26, according to OT Lane Johnson.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez could keep starting job (Sun Nov 22, 11:15 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez, who will start Week 11's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is also expected to start Week 12's game versus the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. With strong performances against both clubs, he could continue to serve as the starting quarterback even after QB Sam Bradford (concussion, shoulder) is deemed healthy enough to resume playing.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez draws the start (Fri Nov 20, 12:32 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez will start Sunday, Nov. 22, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) out.

Our View: Sanchez is a nice upside play because of his experience in this offense and facing the Bucs defense that Kirk Cousins tore up a few weeks ago.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez favors faster pace (Wed Nov 18, 12:12 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez ran the offense at a faster pace last year in head coach Chip Kelly's system, and the expectation is that the tempo of the offense will pick up if Sanchez has to start in place of QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 'Mark's probably a little bit more conscious of the tempo,' OT Lane Johnson said. 'He may go at a little bit faster pace than what Sam is, so other than that, probably just the tempo may be a little bit faster.' Kelly and offensive coordinator have said that the offense won't change much this week if Sanchez has to start.

Our View: In nine games last year, Sanchez had over 250 yards passing in all but three games. He's familiar with this system, and he's not that much of a downgrade (if he's even one at all) from Sam Bradford. He's a QB2 with upside this week against the Bucs.
