Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was fined $10,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct for unnecessarily flipping the ball toward New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell after a 50-yard reception in last Sunday night's 17-10 win, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora on Friday.

The catch was negated by offsetting penalties after Jackson was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct and Giants defensive tackle Linval Joseph was penalized for illegal use of the hands.

Eagles defensive tackle Trevor Laws also was fined $7,500 in the game for unnecessary roughness for striking Giants quarterback Eli Manning late and away from the play after an Eagles interception.

In addition, Eagles linebacker Brian Rolle was fined $10,000 for a machine gun gesture, according to a tweet from CBS Sports.
