NEW YORK (AP) — Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for an illegal peel-back block on Minnesota's Erin Henderson during the Eagles' loss last Sunday.

Foles went down low at Henderson's knees, drawing a penalty and negating DeSean Jackson's 18-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Arizona's Marcus Benard was fined $15,750 on Friday for roughing the passer on a hit on Tennessee's Ryan Fitzpatrick. Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington was also docked $5,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Also in that game, Titans defensive end Kamerion Wimbley was fined $10,000 for hitting Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer in the knee area.
