A brawl during the Bengals-Raiders game last Sunday resulted in five players getting fined. After a Raiders defensive lineman Lamarr Houston took a shot at Bengals quarterback Dalton for a false start. Bengals’ Andrew Whitworth defended his teammate, and a fight erupted between Whitworth and Raiders Houston, Desmond Bryant, Tommy Kelly and Matt Saughnessy.

Dalton said afterward that he appreciated Whitworth letting the opposing linemen know they couldn’t take a cheap shot at the Bengals quarterback.

Neither Bryant nor Shaughnessy were flagged on the play, but still received the $26,250 fine–the minimum for a first offense for fighting.
