Harrison: Week 9 predictions
Are the undefeated Falcons and defending champion Giants destined for doom on Sunday? Elliot Harrison provides his picks. **More ...**
Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour drew a flag for his Week 8 hit on Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel, and now he's drawn a fine from the league.
Other fines confirmed Friday:
» Chicago Bears safety Chris Conte thought his $21,000 fine was a prank put on by his teammates, according to Bears radio network sideline reporter Zach Zaidman. It turned out to be all too true, however, as Conte was indeed fined that amount for striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area. The Bears did manage to edge out a 23-22 win against the Carolina Panthers.
» New York Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty was fined $15,750 for roughing the passer in his team's 29-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Canty led with the crown of his helmet when he struck Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
» Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Mike Martin found his wallet $15,750 lighter after being fined for unnecessary roughness against quarterback Andrew Luck in a 19-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
» In an AFC East rivalry match, the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets found themselves fined on both sides. Dolphins linebacker Marcus Dowtin was fined $15,750 for unnecessary roughness, while Jets offensive tackle Jonathan Martin was docked $10,000 for an illegal chip. The Dolphins got the last laugh with a 30-9 drubbing.
» Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen and offensive tackle Donald Penn's fracas on 'Thursday Night Football' in Week 8 drew the NFL's attention. Both players were fined $7,875 for grabbing an opponent by the facemask.
