The fine was announced on NFL.com.||||||| On a first-and-goal near the end of the second quarter, Brady was forced out of the pocket to his left. He ran for 3 yards but slid before he could be tackled. In the process, he raised his right leg and kicked defender Ed Reed in the thigh. Brady reportedly apologized to Reed in a text message. The Ravens won 28-13 to advance to the Super Bowl.
