Tramon Williams shoved an official and will pay the price, while T.J. McDonald escaped unpunished for his crotch-grab tackle of Vernon Davis.

The biggest fine of Week 13 was dished out to Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams, who was penalized $26,500 for shoving an official in the team's Thanksgiving Day loss to the Detroit Lions.

Williams was one of five players in the game to receive a fine, and the five financial penalties totaled $73,500 combined. Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews and Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy each drew $15,750 penalties, while Lions safety Glover Quin and wide receiver Kris Durham were each given $7,875 fines.

St. Louis Rams safety T.J. McDonald was the subject of some controversy for his tackle of San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis by grabbing a certain part people don't like grabbed. However, the rookie safety did not receive a fine for the play.

Rounding out the fines for the week was a $15,750 hit on Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon for leading with his helmet on a tackle that knocked Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel out of the game. Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall and Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor each received $7,875 fines for personal foul penalties.
