OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The NFL has fined Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis for a helmet-to-helmet hit delivered to Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco.

The play came in the fourth quarter of Baltimore’s 17-14 loss on Sunday. Lewis hit Ochocinco after a pass from Carson Palmer sailed incomplete, and the 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness helped set up the winning touchdown with 22 seconds remaining.

Asked Wednesday if he expected to be fined, Lewis replied, “Probably.”

The amount of the fine was not disclosed.
