Chicago Bears guard Kyle Long might have drawn the penalty, but New England Patriots linebacker Akeem Ayers' wallet took the more costly blow.

Per Mike Florio of NBC's Pro Football Talk, "according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Patriots linebacker Akeem Ayers received a $8,250 fine for kicking Bears guard Kyle Long during last Sunday’s game at Gillette Stadium.  The kick landed in Long’s groin area."

Officials missed the kick itself, yet flagged Kyle Long for his reaction to Ayers' antics. Further video review of the incident confirmed that Ayers had actually made a kicking motion at Long, thus the fine.

The whole ordeal occurred after Ayers sacked Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. While he was on the ground, Ayers kicked Long in the groin after Long pulled Ayers' leg.
