DEC 30 HURTS AND SAQUON FINED! You don’t see this too often: Two stars in the same game both being handed big-time fines by the NFL for tackling … even though both guys play on offense!

That’s what’s happened with Jalen Hurts and with Saquon Barkley, each of whom has just been fined for the way they tackle.

The incidents happened in last week’s Philadelphia Eagles win over the New York Giants. There was Hurts with what the league says is a horsecollar tackle at the end of his pick-6 interception …

The NFL fined #Eagles QB Jalen Hurts $16,391 for a horsecollar tackle last week — yanking down #Giants CB Adoree Jackson on this pick-six.

And not to be outdone, here is Saquon earning what the league says is unneccessary roughness for his play.

Another big running back fine: The NFL docked #Giants star Saquon Barkley $21,855 for unnecessary roughness on this play last week. The league has been cracking down all season on players lowering their heads to initiate contact.

Barkley got fined $21,855. Hurts got fined $16,391.
