J.J. Watt was the 11th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

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 the Dallas Cowboys.

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

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

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

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

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