NEW YORK (AP) – Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has been fined $25,000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick last Sunday.

Miller popped Fitzpatrick in the helmet with his facemask, resulting in a penalty that led to a touchdown for the Titans in Tennessee's 51-28 loss. The league announced the fine Friday.

Chicago wide receiver Brandon Marshall was docked $15,000 for wearing non-approved orange cleats during the Bears' win over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night. Marshall was fined $10,500 by the league in October for wearing green shoes against the New York Giants.

Cowboys defensive back Orlando Scandrick was fined $21,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Marshall, who was deemed a defenseless player on the play. Dallas' George Selvie was docked $15,750 for roughing the passer.
