NEW YORK -- The NFL is looking into Eagles center Mike McGlynn's accusation that Redskins safety LaRon Landry spit at him.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Tuesday the league checks for video evidence any time there is a report of a player spitting on another during a game. Last week, the NFL did not fine Ravens fullback Le'Ron McClain after the Dolphins said he spit in the face of Miami linebacker Channing Crowder

After Philadelphia's 59-28 victory at Washington on Monday night, McGlynn said Landry spit at him twice during extra points.

"That really fired us all up, and we really put the afterburners on," McGlynn said after Monday night's game. "It's good to come out and score 60 points almost. We all want to play the game with all the respect in the world. When people come out and disrespect it like that, I think you've got to be more respectful of the game. That's just a terrible thing. I think we just looked at it as 'Hey, let's keep pouring it on.' "

Landry denied spitting at McGlynn, saying: "I'm aggressive. I'm not that type of player."

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
