The Broncos defense played on the edge all season, blurring the lines between intimidating and penalties.
Super Bowl 50 featured a dominant performance with a cost. The NFL fined cornerback Aqib Talib $26,044 for separate incidents involving a facemask on receiver Corey Brown and taunting, our partners at The Denver Post learned Friday.
The ruling means Talib is not expected to be suspended after the league reviewed his actions.
Defensive end Malik Jackson was also docked $8,681 for a late hit in the Broncos' 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
The Broncos were fined $494,990 for 12 infractions, a suspension (Talib for eye poking) and an equipment violation.
