FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes was fined $21,000 by the NFL for his hit on Bills tight end Scott Chandler last Sunday, which came during a fourth-quarter interception return by Devin McCourty.

The league said Spikes was fined for unnecessary roughness (illegal blind-side block), although he was not penalized on the play.
