Phillips fined $7,500 for hit

Giants safety Kenny Phillips was fined $7,500 for unnecessary roughness for striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area, according to the NFL. While Phillips was not flagged in the game for his hit, the league still fined him.

Defensive end Osi Umenyiora was not fined for his roughing-the-passer penalty against Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the fourth quarter last week. Safety Deon Grant was not fined either for getting into a little scuffle with tight end Jermichael Finley.
