Apparently, the NFL has no love for the shove.

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs was fined $20,000 for getting into a shoving match with Jets rookie lineman Muhammad Wilkerson during the Jets-Giants preseason game. According to the Associated Press, Wilkerson was fined $10,000 for his role in the fight.

An NFC spokesman confirmed Jacobs' fine late Friday night.

Both Jacobs and Wilkerson were ejected in the second half of the Jets' 17-3 win on Aug. 29.

Wilkerson called tussling with Jacobs a "rookie mistake" shortly after the game.

Jacobs was fined $10,000 for throwing his helmet in the stands last year against Indianapolis and $20,000 for yelling at Eagles fans before a game in Philadelphia last season.
