Turns out Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson's $25,000 fine wasn't even the biggest on the team this week.

Safety Bernard Pollard was fined a whopping $40,000 for an unnecessary roughness hit in the fourth quarter against the Tennessee Titans.

Pollard had five tackles in the Week 12 matchup against the Titans.

Pollard, who has been criticized for his rough play, dodged a fine in Week 8 after hitting Indianapolis Colts receiver Anthony Gonzalez out of bounds, tearing his PCL and ending his season.
