Safety Ed Reed got the biggest fine of the week for the Ravens, but he wasn’t the only member of the team to owe the NFL a cut of his paycheck this week.
Tackle Michael Oher has been fined $10,000 for a chop block on Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka in the third quarter of last weekend’s 33-14 win against the Giants. Oher was flagged for a personal foul on the play, which came during a series that would have ended with Sandra Bullock badgering the referee if it happened before the release of the movie version of The Blind Side.
Oher was also flagged for a false start and holding on that drive, a trio of penalties that the Ravens were able to overcome on what wound up being a 16-play, 82-yard field goal drive that ate up almost eight minutes.
The Ravens had one other penalty on that drive, an illegal crack back called on wide receiver Torrey Smith. Smith was not fined.
