Raj Mehta-US PRESSWIRE

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was fined $31,000 for an unnecessary roughness call on a second quarter hit and a love tap during a third quarter PAT.

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been fined $31,000 for two actions against the Green Bay Packers, according to multiple reports. The first was a $21,000 fine for a hit in the head and neck area of Packers wide receiver James Jones in the second quarter, which led to an unnecessarily roughness penalty.

Burfict was also fined $10,000 for his love-tapped Ryan Taylor's groin during an extra point attempt in the third, which led to Taylor's retaliatory shove.
