More than a week after the Thursday Night Football game between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers erupted into an ugly melee, the NFL officially handed down discipline for all parties on Saturday.

While defensive end Myles Garrett received the most significant discipline, an indefinite suspension for striking quarterback Mason Rudolph in the head with a helmet, he was only one of 33 players to receive punishment from the league.

Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey (two games) and Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi (one game) each received suspensions. Meanwhile Rudolph’s $50,000 fine was just one of many handed out.

The league fined 19 Steelers players $3,507 each for entering the fighting area. Meanwhile, 10 of Cleveland’s players were also fined for the same offense. Garrett also received a $45,526 fine for multiple violations, in addition to his suspension.

The NFL also fined the Steelers and Browns $250,000 each.
