NFL fines Freeney $20,000 for postgame comments about officials

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NFL has fined Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney $20,000 for comments he made after last Saturday's 23-17 overtime loss at San Diego.

The league announced the fine Friday.

In a postgame interview with Yahoo! Sports, Freeney used two expletives in criticizing the officiating at the end of the game. The Colts were called for three defensive penalties on the Chargers' winning drive in overtime.
