Two Boys Fined

The NFL fined safety Roy Williams $15,000 for his horse collar tackle during the Cowboys’ 25-24 victory against the Bills on Monday night. How ironic.

The NFL made the type of tackle illegal, almost entirely because of Williams. His tackle on then-Eagles receiver Terrell Owens late in the 2004 regular season put the horse-collar and drag down in the spotlight. Owens ended up with a bad leg injury, and didn't return until the Super Bowl.

Also, cornerback Terence Newman was also fined $5,000 for “impermissible” use of his helmet during a tackle against the Bills.
