49ers left tackle Trent Williams wasn’t the only player out of the NFC Championship Game to incur a fine from the NFL for actions in the NFC Championship Game.

The NFL docked Eagles defensive lineman Brandon Graham $13,261 for unsportsmanlike conduct, reports. Officials did not penalize Graham during the game last Sunday.

Three 49ers lost money for illegal actions during the game.

Williams lost $12,731 for unnecessary roughness after his ejection for throwing Eagles safety K’Von Wallace to the ground. Williams’ only other fine of his 13-year career came in 2012 when he punched Richard Sherman after a wild card playoff game, and the NFL docked him $7,875.

The NFL fined 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw $10,430 for an unnecessary roughness in the fourth quarter. Greenlaw repeatedly tried to punch the ball out of Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell‘s hands, even after the play ended.

Greenlaw has had three fines for $31,648 this season. He had a helmet-to-helmet hit on Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert in Week 10 and a late hit on Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott in the divisional round.

49ers safety Talanoa Hufanga was fined $4,916 for hitting Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts out of bounds late in the third quarter.

  1. Greenlaw should have been ejected for punching. He missed the ball and punched Gainwell as many times as he hit the ball.

  2. Watch the film of the fight and tell me what Graham does that is worth more in fine money than what Williams did. I’m perplexed.

  3. All the eagles do is run their mouths and push and shove and grab face masks after every play.

  4. Anyone know what they saw from BG? He was just standing there and pushed Williams out of the way after he slammed Wallace to the ground.
