Mundy drew an 11-yard unnecessary-roughness penalty for slamming into Higgins on an incomplete pass during the Raiders' final drive. The penalty gave Oakland a first down at the Pittsburgh 11 with 21 seconds remaining. One play later, Raiders quarterback Bruce Gradkowski threw a touchdown pass to Louis Murphy for a 27-24 victory.
Mundy contends it wasn't a helmet-to-helmet hit, as the NFL states in the letter notifying him of the fine.
