Two AFC North players fined
By James Walker
Two defensive players in the AFC North were fined for hits made in Week 15.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed and Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dhani Jones were fined $10,000 and $15,000, respectively, for a pair of hits on opposing quarterbacks.
Jones made helmet-to-helmet contact during a hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy last week's 19-17 victory for Cincinnati. Reed struck New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees in the neck and head area in Baltimore's 30-24 win.
