Backup quarterback Mark Sanchez made his Cowboys’ debut, playing the end of the fourth quarter of the team’s blowout victory.

“It was good. It was great,” said Sanchez, who signed with the Cowboys the week of the season opener. “I’ll be ready to go if they ever need me. It was nice to get in there with the guys. It was great. Just like practice. It was fun.”

Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan joked with Sanchez afterward about Sanchez stealing Ezekiel Elliott’s “feed me” sign.

“It was between me and Dak [Prescott] and Zeke,” Sanchez said. “Yeah, we were just messing around. It was great to get in and finish the game on offense. I think that’s always your goal when you can finish 4 a minute like that, get a first down.”

Sanchez made the sign after a completing an 8-yard pass to Geoff Swaim on fourth-and-one that allowed the Cowboys to get into victory formation. It was a run-pass option.

“I was hoping to run it,” Sanchez said.
