Harrison: Week 9 predictions
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.
» 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.
