♪ >> good evening every welcome to sports sunday. i'm howard eskin and i'm back! the eagles wouldn't game but they lost two players to injuries. that's the bad news. now i'm told demeco ryans suffered a torn achilleas out for the year. nick foles suffered a broken clavicle that's the collarbone. he's likely out for six weeks and it could be the season. re-examine him tomorrow with an mri.
eagles went to houston without safety nate allen. when it was over, the eagles did have a 10-point win and a six and two record and again lead in the division. let's go to houston and take a look. in the first quarter, nick foles he's run this play before to jeremy maclin this is 59 yards. it's a touchdown eagles up seven to nothing. maclin had two touchdowns. 150 yards. first quarter this is not a good play. it wasn't because he had pressure from jjwatt throws the interception to boil. and he returns it 51 yards. that's not good. houston didn't score a touchdown on on their own after turnovers. still in the first quarter, bad play. nick foles gets sacked. he leaves the game. later found out it was a broken collarbone. mark sanchez in there. what a great pass to jordan matthews. in the second quarter eagles lead 17-14 at the break. chris polk four plays 70 yards
finishes it off eight year touchdown eagles up by 10 but this is big play. interception was nice, but when demeco ryans goes down, he fumbles the ball that's not the bad part. here he tore his achilleas tendon. he played in houston. players wishing him the best waving to his former fans in houston. but he is out for the year. all right. fourth quarter eagles need to seal it up. how about this mark sanchez two touchdown passes did he throw a couple of interceptions one was not his fault. that was an 8-yard touchdown pass to maclin. chip kelly didn't change the offense when sanchez came in. >> since day one here, you know what type of professional he is. he takes copious notes. he's a real professional and i said since day one you better have two quarterbacks in this league and we were fortunate when nick did go down we could bring mark in. i don't think we missed a beat offensively. >> our offensive coaches do a great job making sure the starters get reps. the second team guys get reps. you know, stand behind nick
every time when we're in walk throughs and stuff making sure i'm taking on the mental reps. and, you know, you never want to get caught off guard. so i was just happy i prepared well. happy i was ready, and happy i could help the team. >> we're not satisfied yet. you know, as far as, you know, the people that -- they're entitled to their own pins. i had, you know, an organization that believed in me. an organization that, um, was with me every day of my rehab. understood what was going on. that's all i need. >> 35 on those situations, you know. it's been happening for us as the season goes. and we love to go out there and kind of react. and make the stop. obviously, for us, today we didn't get the turnovers we needed to and that needs to be -- the team we play defense we go against we got to get two or three or four ourselves. we compare ourselves against the other defense in that category we need to be a lot better.
>> chip kelly breaking out the big words today. copious notes. that's nice. and now it's time for our verizon call of the week. we want tonic company lions or nick foles who's the big good -- demeco ryans or nick foles, who's the bigger loss. we'll read a few coming up up later in the show. we'll be back to go over what is different this week about chip kelly. you'll be interested and dave kelly. you'll be interested and dave spadaro
>> our play of the game came in the second quarter. mark sanchez's first pass in almost two years throws a 52-yard pass to jeremy maclin. sanchez would finish the drive with a touchdown pass to jordan matthews. but this pass maclin was our nrg play of the day. jeremy maclin stats the last two weeks almost unbelievable. 18 catches, 345 yards. toe four touchdown after the game i asked maclin what's been different the last two weeks. >> playing football, man. trying to do everything i can to help this team win.
happy came here and got the win. back to the drawing board on monday. >> when you lose your quarterback, what do the players say to each other when you lose nick foles. >> rally around mark. we got a guy nick foles, i think sorry, in mark played a lot of football games. played at a high level. we got to rally around and help him be successful. >> joining me back from houston dave spadaro. dave, jeremy maclin, i know he's -- he was a good receiver. but my gosh, the last two weeks i mean what seems to have happened to him? all eight games he's on pace or 90 games, 1600 yards. 16 touchdowns. remarkable first half of the season getting down the field. he's a little bit wiser physical al little bit stronger got his body really strong with the injury last year. and he's come back with that explosiveness we wondered if he
would have after a knee injury and being the number one target having this number called really responded to that and he kind of played in desean jackson's shadow a little bit with that deep ball. the underneath refer the red zone receiver now he's doing it all. >> i hate the cliche people fall into the trap of using, chip on your shoulder. he doesn't have a chip on his shoulder but he obviously did want to prove to people that he was a good receiver. you think that's part of it? that's part it absolutely owes on a one year crack. this offense is a great offense for him and he's a very good football player. you think about what he did in college in my sore wreak first round draft pick. he's taking advantage of his opportunity to shine. i believe this howard when you take football away from players, they certainly come back with a little bit more vigor. how much they missed the game and how much they love the game and he's with that kind of energy. >> mark sanchez will now be the quarterback probably for at least five, six weeks maybe even
longer maybe the season. how do you look at mark sanchez now. came in, tempo was no problem. in fact there were times in the game he was shoeing the official to the side. to get things going more quickly. came in and chip kelly didn't break him in with any screen pass right down the field showed the arm strength. moved the ball well. moved around the pocket very well. probably a little bit more athletic than nick foles. so there might be a few read options you see added to the offense. again, a one-year contract for mark sanchez, howard. this is his chance to show everybody that he could be an elite quarterback. >> he made a point, he gets chip kelly gives the back up reps but stands behind nick foles. i don't know that lot of backup quarterbacks take advantage of the practice it's not practice in there. >> training sessions. >> training sessions. and mark sanchez obviously did that well. he's been coached very well. he's taking it very seriously put a lot of time into it. i think the wrap early in mark sanchez career he wasn't asthma
cher in that situation in new york as some up there wanted him to be. now he's really applying himse himself. and he's great for this offense and the eagles understand now you take zach ertz away like the texans did today maclin is in the game. running backs involved in the passing game. a lot of weapons here and i don't think the offense will skip a beat at all. >> you mentioned the first pass to chip kelly called for mark sanchez. but what chip kelly did this week is back to being chip kel kelly. because last week in arizona you've got inches fourth down you make it the game is over in arizona. today similar situation, only up three, late in the fourth quarter you got close to a yard. fourth down. and he goes for it welcome back chip kelly. i disagree with you. they still had to put points on the board in arizona it was a tied game. >> nonsense. jason kelce at center today. big difference we saw the way the eagles ran the football
190 yards. they were playing downhill smash mouth physical football and that's without todd harremins in the game in that late going. andrew gardner came in and played very well at right guard. chip kelly has been chip kelly put it in the hands of the defense last week. it didn't work out. >> he got the today hone niece back actually. demeco ryans how much are they going to miss demeco ryans? >> it's a huge loss. >> giant. in many, many ways from emotional standpoint look he was the leader of this team and has been the leader of this team. everybody looked it's a ryans as the -- kind of as mufasa as chip kelly said after the game from on field standpoint you got to be a little bit creativity. s -- add creativity here. four man fronts you miss in casey matthews. ocho. it's going take a group to replace this single individual. just a heartbreaking seen in houston with a player and a man
that everybody loves dee me company ryans. >> billy davis at the coach in the booth. demeco ryans the coach on the field. yeah. it's a big loss and the thing about the nfl as weeks go by offensive coordinators will look for ways to exploit the defense. >> the eagles used the running came quickly. four plays 70 yards, actually lesean mccoy think they should run more but they really got the running game going. they got the running game back. evan mathis back next week. chris polk involved. downhill smash mouth running. you like to see that particularly in the red zone talking about it all year. eagles three of three touchdowns in the red zone today. and that is why philadelphia eagles team in first place. todd harremins you gave him all he had trying to get through this game to get them to evan mathis this week and move tobin over. i think todd harremins is probably played his last game of the season today. would you agree? i think it will be very difficult to come back. that's an injury in the by september it won't come back. i gave him a lot of credit for
playing today. >> guts. going against jj wats an absolute beast. they adjusted and ran the football away from him. they took him out of the game in the second half. >> next week carolina you move on to green bay. the schedule gets really interesting. >> thanks, howard. >> thanks, dave. we're coming back. back to h
♪ >> i told you we'd be back. weaver back with our verizon call of the week. earlier asked demeco ryans or nick foles, who is the bigger loss for the eagles and why? here's what you had to say. all right. ronald says, ryans is team leader and foles was struggling. joe thomas says both are pretty big but the depth hyped ryans is set which. quarterback now -- bark system all right. we'll see about that. log on to myfoxphilly.com, click on the facebook tab and join the conversation. all right. cardinals and cowboys today. no tony romo. to texas. cardinals down to seven carson palmer throws an 11 touchdown pass to brown. gave the cardinals the lead for good. arizona beats those falling cowboys 28-17. meaning the cowboys are falling fast. now trail the eagles by half game in the inform fc east and
