Lewis' hit deserves a fine

Hopefully, the NFL fines Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis for the hit he put on Colts receiver Austin Collie late in the second quarter. The hit separated Collie from the ball in the end zone and saved the Ravens a touchdown, but Lewis was flagged for leading with this helmet.

It was a cheap shot, and Lewis had already done this two or three times this season. It's called a "death blow" or "kill shot," and you see it a lot in football and lacrosse. It's usually done on purpose and delivered under the chin, where it can cause serious damage.
