The league fined Falcons safety Chris Hope $30,000 today for his helmet-to-helmet against Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz last Sunday.
Hope had expected to be fined for the hit, which drew an unnecessary roughness penalty. All such penalties are reviewed by the league for possible fines.
Falcons wide receiver Roddy White also was fined $7,875 for scuffling with Giants cornerback Corey Webster, who was docked the same amount.
