After a game that was described by many as dirty, players on both the Eagles and Ravens have been fined by the league office, with a couple players who had a brief scuffle leading the way.

Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson and Ravens defensive back Cary Williams, who went at it on the field in the second quarter, were each fined $10,000. Both Jackson and Williams were called for personal fouls, which canceled each other out as offsetting penalties.

Philadelphia’s Cullen Jenkins was also fined $7,875 for a late hit on a Ravens player.

On the Ravens, running back Ray Rice was fined $7,875 for a late hit, while Ravens guard Marshal Yanda was fined $7,875 for a hit that the NFL described as “late and away from the play.”
