The New Orleans Saints are going to the Super Bowl, but defensive end Bobby McCray is going to pay for the hit that helped his team get there.

A source told that McCray was fined $20,000 for a low blow on quarterback Brett Favre in last Sunday's 31-28 overtime victory over Minnesota.

McCray struck Favre around the legs while defensive tackle Remi Ayodele plowed into the quarterback's upper body. The third-quarter play, which the NFL admits should have drawn a penalty, gave Favre a sprained ankle that hampered him for the rest of the NFC Championship game.

A six-year NFL veteran, McCray played off the bench for New Orleans throughout this season.
