Sherman ran over and after tapping Crabtree on the backside and extended his hand for a handshake. Crabtree then shoved Sherman in the face. The All-Pro cornerback then made the choking gesture.

Sherman was the only player fined in the game.

$7875? How does the NFL calculate this fine to arrive at this total? Considering the taunting, display of bad sportsmanship, the lack of humility and professionalism to the millions watching during a live post-game interview, I'd he got away cheap.
