Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo was fined $53 Christian Covington Jersey ,482 by the NFL on Friday for his hit during a play in Minnesota's tie at Green Bay last weekend.Sendejo was penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness after tackling Packers wide receiver Davante Adams in the third quarter. The safety knocked into Adams with his right shoulder just after Xavier Rhodes made initial contact.Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said during his weekly radio show Wednesday that Sendejo was told by an official after the play that he did everything right on the tackle. It still resulted in a fine by the NFL, and it was a hefty one because Sendejo is considered a repeat offender.Among those not fined Friday were Packers linebacker Clay Matthews and Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks 鈥?both of whom were flagged for roughing the passer.Atlanta safety Damontae Kazee was docked $10,026 for his hit on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton last Sunday that also drew an ejection .Kazee apologized this week for hitting into the helmet of Newton, who was sliding feet-first on a play in the second quarter. Newton was quickly checked on the sideline before returning to the field without missing a play.Kazee, who made his second NFL start, said he needs to adjust to the new rule."I've got to learn to try transitioning to the NFL; he has not missed a step. As a rookie, Fitzpatrick is already establishing himself as the best defensive back on the roster, but he does have a long way to go and will be vulnerable to Will Fuller’s speed. I am also excited to see what Lamar Miller can do in his first game against the Dolphins since he left the team as a free agent in 2016. Miller recorded 100 yards on the ground last week and should be set to produce an equivalent amount tomorrow night. Kerryon Johnson broke off a 71 yard run right up the gut of the Dolphins’ defense early in the second quarter of last Sunday’s game. If the Lions’ below average run offense can gash Miami’s defense, I do not expect much less from Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue.The Dolphins have also yet to face a QB with the scrambling ability that Watson possesses. The most mobile QB they have faced is Mitchell Trubisky, and he rushed for almost 50 yards on the Dolphins defense. Although most Texans fans would prefer to not see Watson risk his health to gain extra yards Alfred Blue Jersey , it could be a pivotal drive-sustaining source of yards in the upcoming game.Injury wise, the Dolphins are relatively healthy, with only backup DE Charles Harris out and starting free safety T.J. McDonald and linebacker Jerome Baker questionable for the game.The biggest single match-up of the game is likely corner Xavien Howard against DeAndre Hopkins. Howard has three interceptions on the season and is normally tasked with guarding the opposing offense’s biggest weapon. He is a Houston native who played at Baylor before being drafted in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Howard and Hopkins have already set the stage for the matchup, as Howard claimed that Hopkins “likes to push off,” which Hopkins responded “Who is Xavien Howard?” when asked by reporters about the comment. Maybe, just maybe, we could see an Andre Johnson-Cortland Finnegan, Part II. If all of the stars align and Bill O’Brien can unleash the offense instead of micro-manage it into boredom, the Texans are set for a big showing against another 4-3 team in the Dolphins on Thursday night.
