Special thanks to SharkyHawk for reminding me to check on a possible fine for the head-twisting play Mike Patterson put on Seneca Wallace in Week 9.

Sure enough, the NFL fined the Eagles' Patterson $5,000 for pulling on Wallace's helmet/facemask during a second-quarter play in the Eagles-Seahawks game. Referee Mike Carey and crew did not penalize the Eagles on the play.

Wallace completed a pass to fullback Owen Schmitt for a 2-yard gain on the play.
