Steelers Safety Ryan Clark Speaks Out on $40,000 Fine

Pittsburgh Steelers (NFL)(NEW YORK) -- The fines just keep on coming to NFL players, specifically the Pittsburgh Steelers. Safety Ryan Clark was fined $40,000 for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Baltimore Ravens tight end Ed Dickson on Sunday night.

This is the second straight week Clark has been fined by the NFL. Two weeks ago, Clark was fined $15,000 for his hit on New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. Clark isn't happy with the number of fines he and his teammates have been accumulating.

"There wasn't anything malicious about it," Clark said. "It wasn't a spear. It wasn't a forearm to the head. It wasn't any of those things and to be fined $40,000 for that? To me it's either targeting me as a single player or it's targeting this team."

After Clark's latest fine, the Steelers have been fined 13 times, totaling more than $182,000.

Ravens Stun Steelers 23-20 In Final Seconds

Jared Wickerham/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- The Sunday night showdown between the Ravens and Steelers -- that resulted in a 23-20 Baltimore win -- showed why these two teams have arguably the best rivalry in the entire NFL.

Not a single touchdown was scored in the first half, as the Ravens led 9-6 going into the third quarter.

Once the second half started it was a different story, as the Ravens took a 16-6 lead mid-way through the third quarter after a Ray Rice touchdown. Pittsburgh swiftly responded with touchdowns from Rashard Mendenhall and Mike Wallace in the fourth quarter to take a 20-16 lead.

Baltimore had one more chance to win the game. The team started its final drive at the 8-yard line with 2:17 left in the game. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco led the Ravens to the 26-yard line, and with just eight seconds left, Flacco threw a touchdown pass to Torrey Smith to take a 23-20 lead -- and that was the difference.

With the win, the Ravens sweep the season series against the Steelers. At 6-2, they are tied with fellow AFC North rival Cincinatti Bengals for the best record in the conference.
