Per the report,
But with what seemed like a favorable matchup Week 15 against Dallas, a team that entered the week ranked 25th against the pass, Sanchez again laid an egg, but a different kind. He threw two interceptions with no touchdown passes, completing 17 of 28 passes for 252 yards.
Looking back at his numbers, Sanchez still seems to be as mistake-prone as ever. For all the success he's had replacing Foles, he has just 10 touchdown passes to nine interceptions. He's thrown two picks in four of his seven games this year.
The Eagles offense is prolific enough that he figures to have good yardage when he's not facing the Seahawks, but the interceptions could keep him from performing like a top-12 quarterback down the stretch. Of course, he's facing the Redskins in Week 16, who've allowed the most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season, but just how willing are you to gamble on something like that this time of year?
Sanchez did a good job of bringing the Eagles back from the brink of a blowout loss after falling behind 21-0 in the second quarter but also contributed two of the team's four turnovers. It's the first time in his seven games this season that Sanchez has failed to throw a touchdown. He'll be looking for a big rebound performance when the Eagles face the Redskins in Week 16.
But again, he was facing the Seahawks, which counts for a lot more now than it did at the start of the season. They're back to playing world champion-caliber defense, allowing an average of 107.5 passing yards in their last four games. Yes, that's the average for a four-game stretch. They're making every quarterback look like Kurt Kittner.
Sanchez averaged 300.5 passing yards in his first four starts for the Eagles -- better even than what Foles was doing -- and leads one of the league's most explosive offenses. Prior to Week 14, the Eagles ranked fourth in both yards and points per game. You shouldn't be afraid to use him Week 15 against the Cowboys. They rank only 25th against the pass, allowing 251.9 yards per game, and he just put up 22 Fantasy points against them two weeks ago.
It doesn't mean you have to start him -- both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank at least 12 quarterbacks ahead of him for Week 15 -- but if you had gotten used to starting him, don't let his Week 14 performance be the reason you stop.
Sanchez completed 10 of 20 passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns. He threw one interception and was sacked three times during the contest. Sanchez's first touchdown came as the result of a turnover. Following a fumbled punt, the Eagles took over at the 14 yard line. A few plays later, Sanchez found Jeremy Maclin on a 1 yard touchdown pass. His other score also came with somewhat of a short field. This time, though, Sanchez struck from 35 yards out, finding Zach Ertz on the play. Other than that, Sanchez was mostly limited against a rejuvenated Seahawks defense. Sanchez also had 7 rushing yards.
He'll take on the Cowboys Week 15.
