The NFL has announced fines for five key Baltimore Ravens players, including Ronnie Stanley, Michael Pierce, Justin Madubuike, Kyle Hamilton, and Odell Beckham Jr., stemming from their Week 6 clash against the Tennessee Titans in London and following their illegal actions performed on the field.

Beckham faces a total of $33,317 in fines, with $11,473 for an incident in the second quarter where he kneed Titans defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons. This altercation was sparked by Simmons' aggressive tackle on rookie Zay Flowers, prompting a retaliatory response from Beckham.

Additionally, Beckham received a $21,844 fine for a late-game incident during Week 6, revealed to be a fight by Marlon Humphrey in his podcast earlier this week.

Rookie defensive back Kyle Hamilton, known for his standout performances, received a $20,524 fine for unnecessary roughness. This penalty resulted from a third-quarter ejection during the Ravens' victory, where Hamilton delivered a helmet-to-helmet hit to Titans wide receiver Chris Moore in the red zone.

Moore, initially poised to make a crucial catch for Tennessee, suffered the consequences of the impactful hit and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Hamilton, expressing remorse, clarified that he had no intention to injure Moore.

Additionally, Justin Madubuike was fined $16,391 for an illegal hit in Geno Stone's return following his interception of a Ryan Tannehill pass.

On top of that, defensive tackle Michael Pierce was also fined $16,391 for an illegal hit on QB Ryan Tannehill, one that was initially called for roughing the passer by the referees on the field.

A fifth player, offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley, received a $16,391 fine after illegally hitting a defender on the Titans' side on a Lamar Jackson scramble.

Although not entirely the same, it's worth mentioning that Baltimore has committed 39 penalties so far this season and is tied for the 10th-most such actions through Week 6. So far, the Ravens have yet to commit a delay of game penalty or incur into an offside call.

On the other hand, Baltimore has eight false starts and seven offensive holding penalties, both figures ranking in the top-10 in the league and something that the Ravens should take more care of going forward.
