Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard hopes the NFL fines New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for his foot-up slide in Sunday's AFC title game.
During the final minute of the first half, Brady slid to the ground at the end of a scramble. His upraised leg hit onrushing Ravens free safety Ed Reed, who was not injured.

"When you slide, obviously, quarterbacks know when they slide, everything is on the ground," Pollard said Monday. "He knew what he was doing."
Pollard added: "So, I am the type of player where it has to go both ways. It really does. It has to go both ways. Hopefully, the NFL will do something about it.
"When it's all said and done, if you want to keep the game clean, you want this thing going in the right direction, everybody needs to be penalized for their actions."
League spokesman Greg Aiello says "any play of that nature is routinely reviewed."
Ravens coach John Harbaugh indicated he'd like to see Brady's wallet lightened a bit, too.
"I saw the same thing you saw," Harbaugh said. "I saw the same thing everybody saw, so that would be in the league's hands. It's pretty straight forward what happened. I'm going to leave it up to you guys to make those evaluations and to the league to make that evaluation."
