The AFC Wild Card game between heated AFC North rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, last Saturday got very ugly with cheap shots, dirty hits and out-of-control players taking center stage.

The NFL announced the following fines for those involved on Friday:

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was not fined, but was suspended for three games at the start of the 2016 season. That will cost him $502,941.

Heavy fines were also levied after the two AFC North rivals met on Dec. 13.


Add all this up, and those two Steelers-Bengals games will cost players $734,193 in fines.
