Giants running back Brandon Jacobs was fined $7,500 and Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth $10,000 for their altercation in the fourth quarter of the Giants' 45-12 win over Washington on Monday night.

Jacobs' fine was for unnecessary roughness, Haynesworth's for unsportsmanlike conduct.

The altercation came after a play on which Giants QB Eli Manning was sacked. After the whistle had blown, Jacobs tangled with DeAngelo Hall and appeared to throw a punch before teammates stepped in. Haynesworth entered the fray, and Jacobs appeared to throw another punch. Haynesworth responded by throwing a punch of his own, one that landed hard.

"I guess they did it, but that was expected," Jacobs said of the fines.

The league also fined Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams $5,000 on Thursday for a tackle at the knees on Carolina Panthers quarterback Matt Moore.
