Mayo fined $25k for hit on Colts QB

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo was fined $25,000 for roughing the passer in last Sunday's win over the Colts. Mayo was not penalized on the play.

The fine, according to an NFL spokesman, was because Mayo "struck the opposing QB in the head and neck area."

The $25,000 fine is the largest assessed to a Patriots player this season.
