The NFL handed down its financial justice on Saturday to the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers for various infractions from the November 14 game.

All told, 33 players received fines from the fight at the end of Cleveland’s 21-7 victory:

Defensive end Myles Garrett received the worst of it, as in addition to an indefinite suspension, he was fined $45,623 for a combination of unnecessary roughness, unsportsmanlike conduct, removing the helmet of Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph and using said helmet to knock Rudolph in the head.

Defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi picked up a one-game suspension for unnecessary roughness after pushing Rudolph to the ground, but has his fined rescinded on appeal.

Every other Browns player on the list was hit with a fine of $3,507 for entering the fight. The Browns franchise was also fined $250,000.

Three Browns players were hit with additional fines for their actions earlier in the game:

  • Safety Damarious Randall was fined $28,075 for unnecessary roughness after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Pittsburgh wide receiver Diontae Johnson that left Johnson with a concussion and led to Randall’s ejection.
  • Cornerback Greedy Williams was fined $28,075 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Pittsburgh wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster that knocked Smith-Schuster out of the game. Safety Morgan Burnett also hit Smith-Schuster on the same play, but was not fined.
  • Defensive end Chad Thomas was fined $21,056 for a roughing the passer hit on Rudolph.

The Browns and the Steelers will meet again on December 1 in Pittsburgh.
