Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro and rookie linebacker Alex Anzalone were each fined $24,309 for penalties incurred by hits against the Minnesota Vikings.

Anzalone was flagged for a hit on running back Dalvin Cook, who had dropped a screen pass. The linebacker tripped over a block right before the hit, and he was trying to regain his balance when he made contact.

Vaccaro was flagged for striking the head and neck area of Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs as he made a catch near the end zone. 

Saints free safety Marcus Williams drew a flag for a late hit, but he was not fined by the league.
