Jets Vs. Steelers Reactions: How Did Lawrence Timmons' Hit Affect Mark Sanchez?

In any game, there are always a few plays that change the course and, eventually, the outcome of the contest.

One such play seemed to occur in the second quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers' 27-10 win over the New York Jets on Sunday at Heinz Field, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

After Mark Sanchez looked good early on, he was belted with a high, illegal hit by Steelers' linebacker Lawrence Timmons, who was flagged for going helmet-to-helmet.

Prior to being hit by Timmons, Sanchez was in rhythm, completing 4-of-5 passes for 80 yards including a touchdown. After taking that shot, the signal-caller went 6-for-22.

Since Sanchez didn't leave the field, it's tough to say exactly how much he was affected by the blow, but the Jets couldn't muster up much of anything after the play, scoring only 10 points throughout the evening.
