FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich has been fined $15,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The hit came in the second quarter of last Sunday's game, and Ninkovich was penalized 15 yards for roughing the passer.

The penalty was one of two against the Patriots for roughing the passer in the game.

Defensive lineman Kyle Love was flagged in the fourth quarter. Love said Friday he hadn't received word of a fine.
