Eagles tackle was fined more for protecting his QB than Chris Baker

Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters was fined $10,000 by the NFL on Friday and Washington Redskins nose tackle Chris Baker $8,268 for their roles in a brawl between the teams last Sunday.

The fight began after Baker laid out Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles with a blindside hit on an apparent interception in the fourth quarter.

Peters and Baker were both ejected. The interception was overturned on video review.

Peters’ fine was for unnecessarily striking an opponent in the head area after the play was over. Baker’s was for grabbing an opponent by the facemask.
