The Jets put a beating on Colts quarterback Andrew Luck on Sunday. In two cases, they put too much of a beating on him.
Jets defensive end Quinton Coples was fined $10,000 for grabbing and twisting Luck’s facemask, while outside linebacker Aaron Maybin was fined $7,875 for elbowing Luck after Luck had already been knocked to the ground.
Coples cost himself a sack with his penalty: He took Luck down for a loss of 14 yards, but the 15-yard penalty wiped out the play and gave the Colts a net gain of one yard.
Maybin cost teammate Antonio Cromartie a touchdown with his penalty: Maybin’s hit on Luck came as Cromartie was returning an interception for a touchdown, and although Cromartie didn’t lose the pick because the foul came after the interception, the return was nullified.
