The Pittsburgh Steelers’ win column got a little bigger after Sunday’s win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Their wallets? Well, they’re a little smaller. In all, the Steelers were fined over $40,000 from their actions in the victory led by Mike Mitchell’s $23,000 fine for his hit on Tyler Eifert.
That's $40,514 in Steelers fines (that we know of) — Brown and DeCastro got $8,681 each, Mitchell $23K, $121K among both teams. Goodness.

Antonio Brown was fined for his crackback block. David DeCastro and Marcus Gilbert were fined for a post-play skirmishes. William Gay and Brandon Boykin were fined for their celebration following Gay’s touchdown. Vontaze Burfict was charged for three different plays, including his low hit on Ben Roethlisberger, while A.J. Green was fined for punting the ball into the stands.
In all, it’s an incredible $130,000 in total fines as tabulated by Tom Pelissero.

I know Marcus Gilbert said he wanted to face the Bengals again. But I bet his financial advisers feel quite differently.
