Spikes fined again for red cleats

The NFL has again fined Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes for wearing his all-red cleats in a game, this time against the Saints last Sunday. Spikes was fined $10,500, up from the $7,875 he was fined for the same offense a week earlier.

The fine is higher because Spikes is a repeat offender.

Also, New Orleans safety Malcolm Jenkins was fined $15,750 for unnecessary roughness/striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area. Jenkins was penalized on the play, which came in the third quarter on a pass intended for Kenbrell Thompkins.
