The NFL levied a $7,500 fine against Rams receiver Torry Holt for bumping an official during the Rams-Eagles game in Week 1. Holt was standing along the sideline when an official ran into him during Donovan McNabb's deep pass to DeSean Jackson early in the game.

The official immediately flagged Holt for unsportsmanlike conduct. The play appeared accidental -- Holt was merely creeping toward the sideline as the play developed -- but rules clearly prohibit that type of play.
