Mark Sanchez threw for 217 yards and a touchdown and ran for another.
Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) -
Mark Sanchez threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score as the Philadelphia Eagles seized sole possession of first place in the NFC East with a 33-10 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Sanchez had 217 yards on 20-of-29 passing, and LeSean McCoy posted 159 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries for the Eagles (9-3), who raced out to a 14-0 first-quarter lead and never looked back on their way to improving to 6-0 on Thanksgiving.
The only thing preventing the score from being even more lopsided was Philadelphia's inefficiency in the red zone. The Eagles scored a touchdown only once and settled for four Cody Parkey field goals in five trips, but it didn't come back to haunt them because of a strong defensive effort.

Robert Griffin III is an issue but he's hardly the biggest one in the nation's capital.
And no, this is not about the multitude of hurdles in front of President Barack Obama right now, it's about football and the dysfunction of the Washington Redskins.
The Redskins risked it all by trading up to RG3 with the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. And when you push all your chips to the middle of the table, there's a chance you will go bust.
