McLane writes that Week 16 is a best-case scenario for Foles' return, with the season finale at the New York Giants another possibility. We'll know a lot more about this Eagles team by then. They face the Cowboys twice over the next three weeks, with Seattle sandwiched in between. If Mark Sanchez can steer the Eagles to first place by the end of that stretch, we doubt Eagles coach Chip Kelly will change course at quarterback.
It's a huge month for the Eagles' playoff hopes and an even bigger stretch for Sanchez's career. A few solid performances against quality opponents could have him starting games in January, whether Foles is healthy or not.
