Biggs: Two Cowboys defenders fined for hits on Orton

Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff was fined $7,500 for the roughing the passer penalty he drew in Denver last Sunday.

The NFL ruled that Ratliff made helmet-to-helmet contact with Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton.

He wasn’t the only Cowboys defender to find himself a little lighter in the wallet this week. Outside linebacker Anthony Spencer was fined $5,000 for a roughing the passer penalty he received.
