Washington cornerback Josh Norman didn’t draw any penalties for hits on his rival, Giants receiver Odell Beckham, during their much-anticipated meeting on Sunday. But Norman was penalized and fined for a hit on another Giants receiver.

Norman was fined $48,620 for a hit on Giants receiver Sterling Shepard, the NFL confirmed today.

The hit drew an unnecessary roughness flag against Norman. The fine is more than players usually get for unnecessary roughness, but Norman is considered a repeat offender after two fines for his actions when he played against the Giants last year.

Norman will see the Giants again on New Year’s Day, in Week 17.

  1. That’s like 2 dollars for the common fan.

    Josh Norman is the best CB in the NFL and Odell Beckham Norman Jr. fears him. He had to resort to picking on the Linebackers for his inflated worthless sad stats. Pathetic! On New Years Day the NFC East Champion Redskins will sweep the New York team who will miss the playoffs….AGAIN.

  2. If you get hit where a fine is warranted I think the player who took the hit should get the money !

  3. I saw the game and the hit. Norman was going full speed at the receiver and actually tried to jump up and out of the way from making contact. There was no hit to the head. But this is mara making the call remember. I wouldn’t be shocked to see salary cap penalties and loss of a draft pick for that one. But the away from the play head spear the Giants laid on some unsuspecting defender goes totally unmentioned. Mara = corrupt

    I watched the game and do not even remember the hit. I guess the refs didn’t see it either.

    —————————————————–

    What do you mean? Norman was flagged for the hit.

    Reading is fundamental, comprehension sadly remains optional. First sentence, third paragraph:
    “The hit drew an unnecessary roughness flag against Norman.”

    What’s truly sad is 7 people gave that post a thumbs up.

  6. Most overrated CB in football… Oops forgot about Patrick Peterson. At least Norman tries to make tackles. Peterson will never get my respect since I constantly see him running from ball carriers like they’re trying to tackle him.

  7. I wish he would have done it in the 1st quarter….it wasnt until that hit on his little bro that odell became possessed on the field.

    For those killing Mara (for whatever nonsensical reason) remember that the NFL football is called the “Duke”, which is Wellington Mara’s nickname. You get to enjoy NFL football every week due in large part to the Mara family. You may not like it, but that doesnt change the facts.

  8. And what about the hit to Matt Jones directly to the back of the helmet by the Giants overly aggressive safety?

    Refs (Mara) didn’t even throw a flag.

    When you play the Giants, if it’s a judgement call, the refs know Blandino reports back to Mara.

  9. “Refs (Mara) didn’t even throw a flag.

    When you play the Giants, if it’s a judgement call, the refs know Blandino reports back to Mara.”

    Wow, you might as well blame Mara for global warming while your at it. At least the Mara’s were dumb enough to let the Cowboys own the rights to their fight song. The Redskins had to buy HTTR back from the Cowboys. Awesome management skills there in Washington.

  10. The refs made the call real time, on the field. Did Mara radio in and tell the refs to throw a flag? Listen to you crybabies.

    Sheppard hopped up like a man and kept playing.

    The Redskins didn’t win this game, the giants lost it. It’s over, move on to week 4.

    I call bs on a hat hit. It definitely wasn’t helmet to helmet. Norman laid his shoulder into that puss.

    ======

    Yeah, it wasn’t helmet-to-helmet. But that’s not the rule — you can’t hit a defenseless receiver’s head or neck area with helmet, facemask, forearm or shoulder…

  12. BS call. Norman wasn’t even covering Shepard. He was covering Beckham, who he let run wide open for what would have been the easiest 80 yard TD in the history of pro football, just so he could peel off and light up a rookie.

    Umm, all but one catch was Odell made was while Norman was covering him. OBJ was also wide open on several plays but Eli would rather throw a duck down the middle to a second string tight end than target OBJ. Norman was lucky Eli was really off his game that Sunday.

  14. So the giants can go head to back of neck on down players, eye gouge lineman, and attempt to destroy NFL equipment, and NFL media/front office say nothing. A db makes a big shoulder to chest hit and gets fined. Too bad for mara and sports media you can’t give them a retro win. Snyder will not conform to be a puppet. Deal with it.

  15. Let me see … Didn’t the Redskins intercept Eli’s passes or did he just give them to us? Lol… Eli Apple is the Giants punk who blasted Matt Jones in the back of the helmet. Tak about defenseless. Mara sucks. The Giants suck. Let’s move on.

  16. So what. Norman pays the fine, and walks out with a win. Tough aint it NY? See ya suckers. Nobody’s crying down here like you diva Odella.
