Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway and New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes were each fined $21,000 by the NFL Friday, reported.

Greenway was fined for making contact with Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson in the head and neck area last Sunday.

Spikes was fined for unnecessary roughness against Buffalo Bills tight end Scott Chandler during an interception return last Sunday.

New Orleans Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins, Green Bay Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji and Arizona Cardinals placekicker Jay Feely were each fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness in games last week.

Jenkins grabbed the facemask of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and poked him in the eye; Raji struck Saints long snapper Justin Drescher with his knee; Feely made a late hit on a Miami Dolphins player during a kickoff return.
