Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes was fined $7,875 for wearing red shoes in Sunday’s loss to Cincinnati, the NFL confirmed to PFT on Friday.
Spikes, 26, recorded a season-high 12 tackles against the Bengals and also intercepted a pass. The 12 stops were his most in a game since 2011 and the second-most he’s made in a regular-season game.
A fourth-year pro from Florida, Spikes has made 225 stops in 40 regular-season games (31 starts).
