San Francisco safety Dashon Goldson was fined $25,000 by the NFL on Friday for punching Arizona receiver Early Doucet in last Sunday's game.


Guys took flight as the NFL hit Week 12, and we have all the best images.

Doucet was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness when he struck Goldson in the helmet area. Goldson then threw his punches.

At the end of a play early in the fourth quarter, Goldson was down away from the ball when he got blindsided and slapped on the back of the helmet by Doucet. Goldson jumped up, confronted him and both began swinging wildly. Goldson then threw a series of punches to Doucet's facemask and received a 15-yard personal foul penalty before being ejected.

Denver linebacker Von Miller was fined $25,000 for roughing the passer. The rookie struck Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez in the chest area with his helmet. It was Miller's second infraction of the season; the other was when he struck Raiders QB Carson Palmer the same way earlier this month.

Seattle safety Kam Chancellor was fined $40,000 for unnecessary roughness against Rams tight end Lance Kendricks. The previous week, Chancellor was docked $20,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit against Baltimore wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

Philadelphia receiver-kick returner DeSean Jackson was fined $10,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct; he flipped the ball toward Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell after a 50-yard reception.

Eagles DT Trevor Laws was fined $7,500 for unnecessary roughness; he struck Giants QB Eli Manning late and away from the play after an Eagles interception.
