Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata has been fined $15,000 by the NFL for his hit Sunday night on Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, several outlets are reporting.

The play in question happened with 8:22 remaining in the second quarter and Baltimore leading New York, 20-7. Sanchez dropped back to pass and as he was about to throw the ball, Ngata blasted him from his blind side, causing a fumble that was scooped up by Ravens linebacker Jarret Johnson and returned for a touchdown.

Referee Mike Carey didn't throw a flag on the play but the NFL, after reviewing the tape, clearly feels differently. The league fined Ngata for roughing the passer. "Specifically, on a pass play, he lowered his head and struck the opposing quarterback,” AFC information manager Corry Rush told PFT.

"I thought Haloti actually hit him in the back with his helmet first, but that being said, he made a great play," Jets head coach Rex Ryan said.

You can judge for yourself below:


Earlier this week Ngata told Dan Patrick that "I love hitting Tom Brady because he always complains. He thinks he should never be touched," When asked if the officials listen to Brady and throw the flag, Ngata said, "No. My hits are usually clean."

Except this time, at least in the eyes of the league.

At this rate, they will just make rushing the passer a penalty, sure seems like we are headed there anyway. It is starting to look more and more like the arena league each passing year.

The hit was legal. The front office is absolutly ridiculous in their behavior relative to hits on the QBs. Hit them in the head or below the knees yes but Ngata got F____ . Why even play. Put the QB in a Pope Mobile with bullet proof glass. They can then move out of the pocket jump out and quick pass and jump back in. Wake up NFL.

Keep telling yourself that.  I guess that is why Harrison has been fined for more?  Only one Haloti got away with was busting Ben The Rapist nose.  That was AWESOME!

Don't know what you are referring to when you wrote "Nig".  You best get your facts straight as he is not black.  Ignorance clearly shows through as well as your comment he is a dirty player.
