TAMPA – The Giants accused the Buccaneers of taking a cheap shot during the final play of last week’s 41-34 Bucs loss at MetLife Stadium but it was two Giants players who wound up being fined for their actions on the play.
Giants center David Baas and guard Kevin Boothe were each find $7,875 for unnecessary roughness on the play, Bass for striking a player in the head area and Boothe for striking a player in the neck area, the NFL said.
Giants safety Kenny Phillips was also fined $30,000 for a head-to-head hit he delivered to Bucs wide receiver Vincent Jackson during a play in the third quarter of that game.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning said the Bucs took “a cheap shot’’ when they went for the ball on the final kneel-down play of the game, but taped replays showed Baas and Boothe punching Bucs players during the play’s aftermath.
