The NFL levied a $5,000 fine against San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson for a hit he made during a 17-9 victory over Oakland in Week 6.

Goldson smacked Raiders receiver Louis Murphy with an open-handed left to the face mask while Murphy scrapped with cornerback Shawntae Spencer following a play late in the first quarter. Officials assessed a 15-yard penalty against the 49ers.

Goldson has a quick left hand. I used a slow-motion replay to check out the swipe in greater detail.
