UNDATED (AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys couldn't enjoy their Thanksgiving dinner this afternoon, but they certainly had the stuffing knocked out of them by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Mark Sanchez threw for a touchdown and ran for another, both in the first quarter of the Eagles' 33-10 rout of the Cowboys near Dallas.

He was 20 of 29 for 217 yards and no interceptions.
LeSean McCoy also ripped through the Dallas defense with 159 yards on 25 carries, including a 38-yard TD run in the third quarter. The Eagles wound up with 256 rushing yards while holding the Cowboys to just 267 total yards.
