On Saturday night, as the Patriots were wrapping up a 45-10 blowout win over the Broncos, Tom Brady took the ball on third down and ... punted. That didn't sit well with the Broncos players; Von Miller got a shot in on Dan Connolly's back, Matt Light took umbrage and the result was a skirmish on the Patriots sideline.

CBS Sports Charley Casserly reported on Sunday morning that the NFL will examine the tapes of the fight on Monday and determine whether or not folks will be fined.

"I talked to the league this morning and they told me that tomorrow they're going to look at the tapes of [the fight] and decide who, if any of the players, should be fined," Casserly reported on The NFL Today.

Miller, the Broncos rookie linebacker, is almost a sure bet to be fined: he hit Connolly in the back and instigated the entire thing. It'll take a further look at the sideline action to determine if anyone else is getting fined, but it's entirely possible that some Patriots players could be fined as well.
