I wouldn't say Sanchez looked excellent in this game...all of his passes were basically dump offs. The INT was brutal though. He still cannot throw those timing out patterns, which is a big reason he will never be a top QB.
It was a crossing route, not an out. Turner lined up tight on the left hand side and ran a shallow cross (with Keller setting a pick). Sanchez was late on the throw and threw behind Turner, resulting in the INT.
Sanchez best throw of the night actually came on a 12 yard out to Turner on the right sideline, though you're correct that the out is the pattern that he's had the most difficult time hitting on thus far in his career.
