Avenging his Thanksgiving debacle from two years ago, Eagles QB Mark Sanchez got his revenge on the league by dominating the Dallas Cowboys in a 33-10 blowout win.

As hard as it is for anyone who saw him play over the last few years play to say, Mark Sanchez is a dominant QB with the Philadelphia Eagles. He absolutely dismantled the vaunted Cowboys defense which had plagued teams like the Seahawks and the Saints all season and now has the Eagles squarely in the driver’s seat for the NFC East division title and possibly a First-Round Bye.
Whether or not Sanchez is simply a plug-and-play QB in a system that meets his strengths or has truly developed into the star QB that was drafted No. 5 overall in 2009 remains to be seen, but for now the Eagles are content to sit back and coast their way into their second consecutive NFC East title.
Here are the five best teams in the NFL heading into Week 14:
5. Seattle Seahawks – The Seahawks are about to pull the NFC West title out from under the Arizona Cardinals, it’s only a matter of time.
4. Philadelphia Eagles – The best defense is a great offense, which explains why the Eagles pass defense is so prolific: when teams have to pass constantly in order keep pace, sooner or later the defense is going to pile on the sacks.
3. Denver Broncos – For the first time since his days with Edgerrin James, Peyton Manning has a legitimate running game to take some of the weight off his shoulders. This team will be danerous in the post-season if C.J. Anderson continues to play like that.
2. Green Bay Packers – Aaron Rodgers has thrown 20 TDs and zero INTs at home this year. If they clinch the No. 1 overall seed just make those Arizona hotel reservations in January.
1. New England Patriots – They may have been beaten on the road, but since the Patriots will in all likelihood get homefield advantage throughout the playoffs, that loss likely won’t mean much if they play the Packers again in the much more comfortable Arizona dome weather.
