Even quarterbacks aren't excluded from the NFL discipline police.

 

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was fined $7,500 for making a horse-collar tackle last Sunday in Seattle. After throwing an interception deep in his own territory, Flacco stopped Seahawks linebacker David Hawthorne four yards shy of the end zone by making the illegal tackle.

 

Flacco's fine is much less than the $15,000 one delivered to Troy Polamalu in September, when the Steelers safety made a horse-collar tackle on Ravens running back Ricky Williams.

 

In addition to Flacco, Ravens defensive tackle Arthur Jones was fined $7,500 for his unnecessary roughness penalty on a special teams play by blocking an opponent low.
