FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour was fined $7,500 for unnecessarily throwing Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to the ground in Sunday's game, according to a league spokesman.
Seymour was fined an additional $7,500 for a facemask penalty against running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
Meanwhile, Patriots safety Patrick Chung was hit with a $7,500 fine for unnecessary roughness (striking an opponent late Sunday). Chung said earlier Friday that he hadn't received word of a fine, and was hopeful that meant he had avoided one.
