ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP)

Von Miller and Kevin Vickerson are appealing fines they said they received from the NFL for hits on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton last weekend.

Miller's $21,000 fine was for a low hit, but Denver's star linebacker insists he was blocked into Newton and didn't come anywhere near his knees.

Vickerson's $15,000 fine was for a horse collar tackle that he insists was more of a swipe.

Miller said he had two fines overturned on appeal last year for hits on Mark Sanchez and he feels he has another strong case.

Vickerson said he hopes to at least have his fine reduced.
