Lombardi: Deep Blue
No Bucs players were fined for the skirmish, which occurred after Giants quarterback Eli Manning was knocked to the ground while attempting a game-ending kneel. Manning said later in the week that he told Bucs players a kneel was coming, standard procedure that lets both sides know not to "fire off" at the snap.
In total, four Giants players were fined for their actions last Sunday, according to The Associated Press. Safety Kenny Phillips was fined $30,000 for striking defenseless Bucs wide receiver Vincent Jackson on a pass play, although no penalty flag was thrown. Running back Andre Brown was fined $15,750 for a horse-collar tackle on Brandon McDonald during an interception return.
