Pittsburgh Steelers safety Sean Davis had an interesting game on Sunday Night Football against the Baltimore Ravens.
He led the team in tackles with 12, and also intercepted Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco one the first drive of the game. The Steelers scored a touchdown shortly after that turnover.
However, Davis also made some big mistakes, especially with penalties. He was called for two personal fouls, and has been fined for one of them.
Davis received an $18,231 fine for shoving Ravens running back Alex Collins while he was out of bounds, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ray Fittipaldo.
He is lucky that he didn’t receive a fine for the other penalty as well. Davis received an unnecessary roughness penalty for taking Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson off of his feet on a play that was an incomplete pass.
This isn’t the first time that Davis has been fined this season. He received one in early November for a helmet-to-helmet shot against Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones.
Safety Mike Mitchell was also fined nearly $60,000 for illegal hits during Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
If the Steelers want to defeat the New England Patriots on Sunday, then they will need play as close to mistake free as possible. That means they need their safeties to not give up long touchdown passes, and refrain from receiving 15-yard penalties.
