Darren Sproles also lead the Eagles' with a 65-yard punt return for a TD, and an 8-yard TD run. Wid receiver Jordan Matthews caught 2 touchdowns, and had 138 yards receiving.
The Eagles' defense also played a huge role, forcing 5 turnovers against Cam Newton and the Panthers. They had 10 points off turnovers, including an interception returned 34 yards for a score by Bradley Fletcher. Newton threw 3 interceptions Monday, and RB DeAngelo Williams lost a fumble on the night.
The Eagles pressured the Panthers' QB all night, with 3.5 sacks for Connor Barwin and 1.5 for Brandon Graham. Newton finished 25/40 for 306 yards and found 2 touchdown passes to Kelvin Benjamin for 21 and 40 yards. The Panthers fell to 3-6-1 on the season, but are not out of the division race in the struggling NFC South. They will host the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, sitting just 1 game out of first place.
Sanchez did not have an interception a day before his 28th birthday in his second appearance this season. He took over after Foles' injury last week, in a win at Houston. The Eagles ran their record to 7-2, taking over first place from the Cowboys in the NFC East. Philadelphia is looking for back-to-back division titles, and will have a tough test Sunday at Green Bay. They will face the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, and then again just 2 Sundays later in pivotal division showdowns.
