Eagles prove they're ready for showdown with Packers - Daily News
The rout was on and the mind wandered, just as it had the night before in front of the television. Sunday night, it was the Packers. Monday night, it was the Eagles. And now the splendid collision is upon us. Eagles vs. Packers. And with that, beginning next Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field, the truth will begin to be told.

Monday Night Massacre - Iggles Blitz
Mark Sanchez impressed the heck out of me. He was 20-37-332 with a pair of TDs. Sanchez threw the ball well and looked like the real deal for most of the night. I’ll discuss him more at length on Tuesday.

Sanchez, Offense Just Fine In Blowout - Birds 24/7
Asked about the pace at which the offense has operated thus far under Mark Sanchez, Evan Mathis noted this week that Sanchez "takes the tempo seriously. He’s a fast thinker. He’s the kind of guy that will move the referee out of the way and get the ball snapped." Assuming the officials cooperate. There was actually one sequence in the first half against the Panthers when the refs couldn’t catch up to the Eagles’ pace, blowing the whistle before declaring: "The officials were not in position to officiate."

10 observations from Eagles-Panthers - CSN Philly
You can’t ask for any more than what Mark Sanchez gave the Eagles in his first start in two years. He was efficient, he was decisive, he was smart, and he ran the offense seamlessly. Now, the Panthers didn’t really fight back, but for a guy who hadn’t started a game since December 2012, this was as close to perfection as you could imagine. As a Jet, Sanchez never threw for more than 265 yards without an interception. Monday night, he threw for 332 without an interception. Best game of his career? Might have been. Just goes to show you what a big-time offensive line and first-rate weapons can do for a quarterback. Sanchez never had this much talent around him with the Jets. He does now, and he has a coach who knows exactly how to get the most out of it.

Eagles finally sharp in all three phases in dominant win over Panthers - The 700 Level
All that pressure on the quarterback led to plenty of opportunities for the defensive backs, and they made the most of them. Nate Allen, Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher all recorded interceptions, with Fletcher taking his to the house for six points. In fact, Fletcher was glued to his man—no matter who it was—all night long, coming up with five pass breakups in addition to the pick-six.

Sanchez, Eagles coast past Carolina, 45-21 - Inquirer
Chip Kelly and Mark Sanchez chatted while the Eagles offense let the final seconds tick off the clock, surrounded by a departing Lincoln Financial Field crowd that continues to watch the Eagles establish themselves as one of the NFL's finest teams. Kelly turned to Sanchez at quarterback to start the second half of the Eagles' season, and it went well enough that Sanchez left the Eagles' 45-21 blowout of the Carolina Panthers on Monday with more than five minutes to spare.

What Eagles' 45-21 win over Carolina Panthers means -
An injured Nick Foles was plenty active on the sideline. Foles, who didn't have on a sling over his injured collarbone, was talking to Sanchez throughout the night, even more than quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave. When the Eagles scored, Foles was out on the field celebrating. He didn't look like a guy who felt his was in the process of losing his job.

7-2 Eagles Deadly In So Many Ways -
They rose, all at once, as the Eagles trotted off the field at halftime with a 24-point lead, a prime-time show if there ever was one for the fans at Lincoln Financial Field on Monday night. A team that wins in every way did it again in convincing fashion, 45-21, against the overwhelmed Carolina Panthers ...

How Michael Vick changed the game - SB Nation
The Jets quarterback has had his ups and downs over the years, but on Sunday, Vick ran his way into the record book and reminded fans what it is that makes him a special player.
