In the second quarter, Davis received a penalty for lowering his head to initiate contact when he tackled Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber after a 2-yard gain.

Tampa Bay center Ryan Jensen was not fined for his unnecessary roughness penalty in the game in which he had an extracurricular hit on Saints linebacker Alex Anzalone.

Officiating has gotten horrible. Especially when it comes to this call. Our guys get nailed in the head every week and nothing.

Don't like it. But, I understand it. It should be based on offenses though. First offense x amount. Second offense xx amount. $27K is ridiculous.

No. They were agreed upon in the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
