A hit with a fine for a kick may be the consequence facing New England Patriot's Tom Brady for an incident in a game between the Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens, late in the season.

What's at issue, is an incident that occurred during one of final plays of the season, when Brady slid to the ground to avoid a Baltimore defensive lineman. It was during the final minute of the first half, when Brady made quick motion, raising his leg into the air, and made contact with Ed Reed, a Raven's safety.

The Ravens won the AFC Championship game by 28 to 13. According to reports, Ravens' safety, Bernard Pollard said Brady knew what he was doing at the time. Pollard added that he would accept any NFL decision, but hinted that Brady could face a fine if the league adhered to its principles.

Greg Aiello, Tuesday, said the incident was going to be reviewed by the NFL for possible disciplinary action, according to Ed Werder on Twitter.

“NFL will review Tom Brady play for possible discipline for appearing as though he tried to defend himself by kicking at Ed Reed,” Werder tweeted, Tuesday afternoon.
