NFL Fines Pair of Raiders Defensive Players

The Raiders and Dolphins had five personal fouls between them on Sunday night, a flag fest that featured 22 penalties.

Even if some calls were questionable, it was logical to assume fines would come from so many serious infractions.

Sure enough, two Raiders lost weight in their wallet.

Strong safety Karl Joseph got hit with a $18,231 fine for unnecessary roughness late in the second quarter, and defensive lineman Mario Edwards Jr. lost $9,115 for the same infraction.

Joseph got slapped with a hard fine for a late hit after running back Damien Williams stepped out of bounds. He didn't make contact with the head or neck area, through his knock was clearly tardy.

Edwards Jr. got caught retaliating after getting blocked by tight end Anthony Fasano, who hit the back of Edwards' head on the way down. Edwards got up and punched him in the head. That's a no-no, and it cost Edwards some money.
