NEW YORK (AP) Four Raiders and one Bengal were fined $26,250 each for fighting in last Sunday's game.

Cincinnati tackle Andrew Whitworth and Oakland defensive linemen Desmond Bryant, Lamarr Houston,

Tommy Kelly and Matt Shaughnessy drew the fines Friday.

The brawl started after a Bengals play was whistled dead because of a false start. Houston tackled quarterback Andy Dalton after the whistle, and Whitworth confronted the lineman, going facemask to facemask.

Later in the week, Whitworth called some of the Raiders ``cowards'' for hitting him during an on-field skirmish.

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall drew two fines that totaled $35,750. He was docked $20,000 for a horse-collar tackle, and $15,750 for a late hit against Dallas.

Fined $21,000 were Panthers running back Mike Tolbert for a blindside block on a kickoff against Philadelphia, and Packers safety Jerron McMillian for helmet-to-helmet contact with defenseless New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett.

Saints defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley was fined $20,000 for kicking the back of 49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone's helmet.

Also fined $15,750 were Texans defensive end J.J. Watt $15,750 for roughing the passer after he struck Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in the head and neck area; Chiefs offensive lineman Donald Stephenson for unnecessary roughness against Denver; Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher for a horse-collar tackle on Vikings RB Adrian Peterson; and Rams DE Chris Long for striking Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley in the head.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was docked $10,000 for throwing the ball at Minnesota cornerback AJ Jefferson.

Ravens receiver Anquan Boldin was fined $7,875 for a late hit against San Diego.
