HOUSTON – Mark Sanchez replaced the injured Nick Foles and threw for 202 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Philadelphia Eagles to a 31-21 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Foles injured his left shoulder late in the first quarter, forcing Sanchez into his first action since 2012 with the Jets. He threw two interceptions in three quarters, but made throws when he had to.
The Eagles (6-2) led by 3 when Jeremy Maclin grabbed a low throw from Sanchez for an 8-yard touchdown to make it 31-21 with about four minutes remaining.
Maclin finished with two touchdowns and 158 yards receiving and LeSean McCoy had 117 yards rushing.
Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 203 yards with two touchdowns and an interception for Houston (4-5).
