Mark Sanchez celebrates Eagles win by eating Philadelphia cheesesteaks

Because of course.

It didn't take long, but Mark Sanchez is already winning the hearts and minds of Philadelphia. As if the veteran quarterback's strong performance during the Eagles' 45-21 win over the Carolina Panthers wasn't enough, Sanchez celebrated the victory with a pair of post-game Philly cheesesteaks. Watch the video here, via Katherine Scott of 6 ABC.

It turns out that Sanchez hadn't even eaten a Philly cheesesteak since signing with the team in March. Prior to Monday's game, Sanchez made a promise that he would go to Pat's and Geno's if the Eagles won. He clearly lived up to his word.

Definitely give the video a watch. I especially like how there's no hesitation from Sanchez when a Philadelphia fan offers him some of his food.

"Mark, I want you to have my cheesefries!"

"Alriiiiiiiiight! Thanks, brother."

While it's hard not to be impressed with what Sanchez has accomplished so far, the once-maligned quarterback still has a lot to prove considering the Eagles have some tough games coming up on their schedule. For now, though, Eagles fans can enjoy Sanchez's greasy baptism into the Philadelphia culture.
