Sanchez hooked up with James Casey for a 14-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He compiled 307 yards through the air while completing 30 of 43 pass attempts. He added one touchdown, two interceptions and finished with a 78.3 passer rating. He has 1,187 passing yards with seven touchdowns and six interceptions this season.
Sanchez will look to make it four games in a row Thursday against Dallas.
Sanchez finished the game with 21 Fantasy points, but most of that came after the game was already out of reach. He tossed both of his touchdowns in the second half with the Eagles down 30-plus points, after tossing a pair of ugly interceptions in the first half. He ended up completing 26 of 44 passes for 346 yards in the blowout loss.
Sanchez looked solid in his first start, but looked like the Mark Sanchez of old Sunday. He has six touchdowns in almost three full games since Nick Foles' injury, to go with four interceptions.
This Eagles offense looks like it can turn just about anyone into a productive Fantasy option, especially if they have to throw the ball 35-plus times. It might not be pretty, but Sanchez looks like he's in the right spot to remain Fantasy relevant down the stretch, even if you'll never feel great about starting him.
Sanchez telegraphed a short pass to tight end Brent Celek in the third quarter. Packers defensive end Julius Peppers picked it off easily and returned it 52 yards for a touchdown. Sanchez also was intercepted when he tried to throw out of bounds but didn't get enough on the ball.
One of Sanchez's fumbles occurred when LeSean McCoy failed to secure the handoff. On the other, Sanchez couldn't handle a high shotgun snap and Packers corner Casey Hayward scooped up the loose ball for a 49-yard score.
Sanchez, who threw second-half scores to Jordan Matthews and Jeremy Maclin, posted his 10th career 300-yard game and the second highest yardage output of his career. However, he overthrew several open receivers. He'll try for a better performance Week 12 against the Titans.
It was Sanchez's first 300-yard game since Nov. 22, 2012. He moved well in the pocket and took only one sack.
With his team leading 17-7, Sanchez led a 91-yard touchdown drive in which he completed five straight passes for 28, 17, 20, 20 and 13 yards. Four of those went to his favorite receiver, Jordan Matthews, including the 13-yard score.
Sanchez later found Matthews for an 18-yard touchdown, and he nearly had a 30-yard scoring pass to tight end Brent Celek. But Celek was ruled down inside the 1.
Sanchez posted a 102.5 passer rating. He visits the Packers in Week 11.
The support continues to pour in for
"The Mark Sanchez I knew when he got here was the quarterback that led [the Jets] to two straight AFC championship games," Maclin said Wednesday, per the New York Post. "He was a quarterback who won at this level as a very high draft pick and did very well with what he was given in New York.
"Mark can play, man. There’s no question about it. He’s also surrounded by a lot more talent than what he had in New York, so the sky’s the limit."
Stephen Hill, who is a former teammate of Sanchez with the Jets and is now on the Panthers' practice squad, chimed in as well. He said Sanchez shouldn't have any issues with Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense. Sanchez makes his first start of the season Monday against Carolina.
"He gets the ball out of his hands quickly," Hill said, per ESPN. "That's going to be a big deal, especially for our defense."
