Safety Kendrick Lewis was fined $8,681 for his late hit on Jacksonville Jaguars rookie running back T.J. Yeldon in the Ravens' 22-20 loss last Sunday.

The fine adds to what was a rough game for Lewis, who dropped a potential game-securing interception two plays before Jason Myers booted a 53-yard game-winning field goal.

The Ravens had five 15-yard penalties against the Jaguars, but Lewis was the only one to get fined.

Rush linebacker Elvis Dumervil had the decisive face-mask penalty against Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles that gave Myers a chance for the game-winning kick. Face-mask calls usually result in fines, but not in this case for Dumervil.

The NFL ruled earlier in the week that the play in which Dumervil grabbed Bortles' face mask should have been blown dead because of a false start penalty on the Jaguars, which would have given the Ravens the win and preceded the penalty.

Safety Will Hill and cornerback Asa Jackson were also flagged for 15-yard penalties in the game. Hill's was for an unnecessary roughness penalty on Bryan Walters.
