NFL NFL Fines
Safety Kenny Phillips was fined $30K for slamming Bucs' WR Vincent Jackson. There was no flag thrown on the play, although anyone that saw the play (that is not a replacement official)?clearly would agree that Jackson was a defenseless receiver and a penalty should have been called.
RB Andre Brown was penalized for a horse collar tackle, which drew a $15, 750 fine.

"Panthers safety Sherrod Martin has been fined $5,000 by the NFL for his hit on Kevin Boss that resulted in a concussion for the Giants tight end.
Boss was attempting to catch an overthrown pass when he was hit in the back of the helmet by Martin. The hit was a violation of the NFL's new rule policy to protect defenseless receivers. Head coach Tom Coughlin was upset that the league did not enforce the rules during the game.
