Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin was fined $7,875 for his unnecessary roughness penalty against the San Diego Chargers, according to NFL spokesman Corry Rush.
While Boldin wasn't fined for his crushing and legal block on Chargers safety Eric Weddle on Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice's dramatic 4th-and-29 conversion, he was punished for a personal foul committed in the fourth quarter four plays before tight end Dennis Pitta's touchdown catch.
Meanwhile, strong safety Bernard Pollard wasn't fined for his penalty for a supposed helmet-to-helmet hit on a defenseless receiver for his collision with Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander.
Replays showed that Pollard actually led with his shoulder, though. Source: Baltimore Sun Attached Thumbnails

The verdict is in from the NFL fine police, and Ravens strong safety Bernard Pollard said he avoided being fined for his hit on San Diego Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander.

Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5) at Baltimore Ravens (9-2)
2 weeks ago, the Steelers were riding high at 6-3, including a recent win over the Giants in New York and looked like they had a chance to take control of the division with a win at home against the then 7-2 Baltimore Ravens. However, Ben Roethlisberger got hurt late against Kansas City and has been unable to play in each of their...
Last Sunday, the Chargers out Chargers-ed themselves: they blew a 10-point lead against the Ravens in an eminently winnable game, the nadir coming when Baltimore's Ray Rice converted a 4th-and-29 late in the fourth quarter. A few plays later, the Ravens would kick the game-tying field goal before notching the victory in overtime.
That fourth-down play has been scrutinized...
