Chiefs' Pollard fined

Posted by ESPN .com's Bill Williamson

Kansas City safety Bernard Pollard quietly having an excellent season for the struggling Chiefs, has been fined by the NFL for actions in Sunday's 28-24 loss at the New York Jets.

The NFL fined Pollard $7,500 Friday for unsportsmanlike conduct. Pollard was penalized 15 yards for taunting after a play early in the fourth quarter with the Jets leading Kansas City 21-17. Ultimately, Pollard's penalty did not hurt Kansas City.

Chiefs' cornerback Brandon Flowers returned a Brett Favre 91 yards to give the Chiefs a 24-12 lead. The Chiefs lost the game when Favre threw a touchdown pas with exactly one minute remaining in the game.
