Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour has been fined $15,000 for two illegal hits against his former team on Sunday.
Seymour was fined $7,500 for slamming Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to the ground, and another $7,500 for facemasking Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
Both fouls, which occurred on the Patriots’ first drive, also drew 15-yard penalties and helped New England get out to an early lead.
Two other Raiders, Jarvis Moss and Mike Mitchell, were penalized for unnecessary roughness against the Patriots, but the league office told PFT that neither player was fined.
Patriots safety Patrick Chung was fined $7,500 for an unnecessary roughness penalty in the same game.
