Woodyard was docked $15,750 for roughing the passer and making helmet-to-helmet contact with a quarterback when he hit the Redskins’ Kirk Cousins with 2:20 remaining in the game.

Vickerson was fined $7,875 by the league for a late hit on Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III with 7:13 left in the third quarter, while Jackson was fined $7,875 for a late hit on wide receiver Pierre Garçon after he made a tackle on Broncos cornerback Chris Harris during an interception return with 7:17 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, who knocked Griffin out of the game with 5:53 remaining, was not fined for the legal hit.
