Ravens left tackle Bryant McKinnie was fined $7,875 by the league for unnecessary roughness, according to an NFL spokesman.

McKinnie committed two facemask penalties during a 30-9 win over the Houston Texans. Those personal fouls came during the second quarter, stalling a drive.

Houston Texans outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus was fined $15,750 for roughing the passer during the game. Mercilus was penalized for hitting Joe Flacco in the chin area.
