Sanders was hit while attempting to catch a pass from quarterback Peyton Manning in the third quarter of the game. Sanders was slow to get up and was helped off the field.
McLeod was penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness on the play.
After the play, there was debate on Twitter regarding the legality of the hit, and whether McLeod should have been penalized for the play. Most felt it was not a direct hit to the helmet.
