NFL hands out fines for Giants-Rams skirmish

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Five players received fines from the NFL for taking part in a sideline brawl during last week's game between the New York Giants and St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome.

A melee on the Giants' bench ensued after Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree delivered a late hit on New York wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. late in the first half, leading to ejections for Giants wideout Preston Parker and teammate Damontre Moore as well as St. Louis defensive end William Hayes.

Parker and Moore were handed $15,000 fines for their participation in the fight, with Hayes docked $10,000. Beckham also received a $10,000 fine for retaliating against Ogletree, who drew the lightest punishment with a $8,268 penalty.

The Giants went on to earn a 37-27 win, with Beckham amassing 148 yards and two touchdowns on eight catches.
