The former Jets quarterback, making his first start for the Eagles in place of injured starter Nick Foles, was solid in a 45-21 rout of the Panthers at Lincoln Financial Field on the eve of his 28th birthday but had yet time to ever savor the pride of Philadelphia.
So after the game, he hit the legendary Geno's to celebrate:

Sanchez, the Jets first-round pick (fifth overall) in 2009 who was cut last March, completed 20-of-37 passes for 332 yards, two touchdowns and no turnovers as the Eagles (7-2) pulled a game ahead of the Cowboys in the loss column in the NFC East.
In his Jets career, spanning 68 starts, the often maligned quarterback never once threw for more than 300 yards without committing a turnover.

A week ago, Sanchez relieved the injured Foles and led the Eagles to a 31-21 victory over the Texans in Houston.
The taste of both victory and Geno's. That's a pretty good night.
