Sanchez's pick was a potential 10-point swing.
Mark Sanchez and the Jets were driving down the field with less than a minute remaining in the first half. At the Texans' 12-yard line, they had a shot to tie the game at 14. But then this happened:
It's not all on Sanchez -- J.J. Watt tipped the ball. But that's an 86-yard return. There are few things that will take the wind out of your sails than an interception in a situation like this one. Just like that, the Texans, and not the Jets, are in the red zone.
The Jets were within a play of tying the game. And now they're down two scores, 17-7. This is a big one.
