The NFL fined five players involved in a brawl during the fourth quarter of Sunday's Cincinnati Bengals-Oakland Raiders game in Cincinnati.
Offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth was the only Bengals player to receive a $26,250 fine, NFL.com reported Friday.
Four Oakland players --- defensive linemen Desmond Bryant, Lamarr Houston, Tommy Kelly and Matt Shaughnessy -- were also fined the same amount, according to NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk.
Whitworth charged after Houston for throwing Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton to the ground. The fight escalated and Whitworth, Houston and Kelly were ejected.
After the Bengals' 34-10 win, Whitworth said he was defending his quarterback.
