The Dallas Cowboys defense took a thumping at the hands of the Chicago Bears on Monday night. A pair of Cowboys defenders also felt the beating in their wallets.

According to the Associated Press, defensive back Orlando Scandrick and defensive end George Selvie each were fined for the league for actions against the Bears in Monday night’s 45-28 loss.

Scandrick was fined $21,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit with Chicago receiver Brandon Marshall. Selvie was hit for a hit below the knees of Bears’ quarterback Josh McCown – though he didn’t reveal the fine amount.

Selvie said he intended to appeal the fine.
