Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was a little too animated during Sunday's loss to the Bengals. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Harbaugh will be fined for making contact with an official.

Harbaugh made contact with an official when he used his hand to emphatically mark a nearby official's chest and leg late in the game, apparently trying to demonstrate that LB Terrell Suggs' hit on Bengals QB Carson Palmer was legal.

The emphatic, karate-chop like motions came in contact with the official, and that will likely cost Harbaugh some cash.
