New York Giants defensive end Damontre Moore has been fined $20,000 by the NFL for his hit on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford Monday, according to a report.
With the Giants leading 7–0 in the first quarter of their 27–7 loss to the Eagles on Monday, Moore slammed Bradford into the ground after he threw an incomplete pass on third-and-10. He was flagged for roughing the passer, allowing the Eagles to continue their drive and tie the game with a score. They went on to score 20 more unanswered points.
It’s the second time the third-year pro has been fined for a late hit; last season he was penalized $10,000 for a hit on Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger. The minimum fine for a second offense this season is $17,363.
The Giants (3–3) face the Cowboys (2–3) at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday.
