INSIDE INFORMATION

Looking for the latest news from around the NFL? Our Insiders got you covered.

Burfict was called for a personal foul, his fifth of the season, in the Bengals' 49-9 rout.

New York wide receiver David Nelson was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness. On a running play, he lowered a shoulder into Cincinnati's Adam ''Pacman'' Jones, and the two needed to be separated after the play.

Denver's Wesley Woodyard and Atlanta's Osi Umenyiora and William Moore were all fined $15,750 for roughing-the-passer hits.

The Broncos' Kevin Vickerson also was fined $7,875 for a late hit in that game.

Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate was docked $7,875 for taunting, a result of his unsportsmanlike penalty in the Seahawks' win over St. Louis on Monday night. Tate had an 80-yard catch in the second half that was capped by him mockingly waving at safety Rodney McLeod as he ran to the end zone.

Among others fined $7,875 by the NFL on Friday: Cleveland's Joe Haden (late hit out of bounds), Buffalo's Mario Williams (facemask) and Detroit's Joseph Fauria (unnecessary roughness).
