Chiefs' Jovan Belcher Fined $15,000 For Hit On Mark Sanchez

The Kansas City Chiefs were blown out by the New York Jets last weekend and now LB Jovan Belcher's wallet will be blown out.

An NFL spokesman tells us Belcher was fined $15,000 for a hit on QB Mark Sanchez last week.

Belcher's illegal hit came with about six and a half minutes left in the third quarter and, according to the league, he hit Sanchez in the head/neck area, which is why he was fined. It was during that meltdown series where the Chiefs had a penalty on almost every play of that drive.

In case you forgot about that drive, I posted the play-by-play after the jump. Re-live it in all its glory.
