PITTSBURGH -- The NFL has fined Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain $40,000 for his helmet hit that left Steelers tight end Heath Miller with a concussion.

Ravens nose tackle Haloti Ngata was fined $15,000 for hitting Ben Roethlisberger's helmet and breaking the Pittsburgh quarterback's nose. Ngata's left hand raked across the quarterback's face during Pittsburgh's first offensive series. Ngata was not penalized.

Roethlisberger played the entire game, which Pittsburgh won 13-10. He underwent surgery on the nose Monday.

Despite the NFL's stricter enforcement of potentially dangerous hits, McClain was not penalized for a hit that bent Miller's head and neck backward during the third quarter Sunday night. Miller remained on the turf for several minutes before being helped off the field.

Even before the game ended, multiple NFL officials said the hit should have been penalized. On Monday evening, the fine was announced.

Miller did not return to the game. He must pass a series of concussion tests before being allowed to play again

Not really into football but played it in high school. The game is a very fast and violent sport, so I am not surprised with these fines for hits on players.

On both these hits there should of been flags thrown but they were not and penalized by yardage. If it were the Steelers that did this they would not only be fined but would of had numerous flags thrown.

What I can't see is people bragging about the hits that the Ravens did that I would call also unsportmanship. You do not gloat over injuries that your team did to another team that your team was playing.
