Denver Broncos head coach John Fox has been fined $30,000 and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio has been docked $25,000 for verbal abuse of the replacement officials.

They were fined for their actions in last Monday night's loss in Atlanta.

NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson says he is reviewing incidents from Sunday night's New England-Baltimore game involving Patriots coach Bill Belichick and the Ravens' John Harbaugh. Anderson also is looking at actions by Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in their loss to Cincinnati.

Anderson says "there is a longstanding NFL rule prohibiting verbal or physical abuse of game officials."

Belichick grabbed the arm of an official as they were leaving the field after Baltimore kicked a winning field goal at the end of the game.
