It has been reported on both Redskins Journal on Fredricksburg.com and the website of the Green Bay Gazette that Jeremy Jarmon has been fined $5000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Aaron Rodgers in overtime in Sunday's game.

Although Jarmon was not penalized on the play, the league ruled that he “unnecessarily struck the quarterback in the head area.” Rodgers suffered a concussion on the play.

So apparently it should have been a penalty.
The NFL fined Redskins DE Jeremy Jarmon $5,000 for the unflagged hit on quarterback Aaron Rodgers on his overtime interception that helped set up Washington’s game-winning field goal.
A league spokesman said “for roughing the passer (unnecessarily struck QB in head area).”
Had a penalty been called, the Packers would have had an automatic first down on the Redskins 39-yard line.
Also, Packers safety Derrick Martin was fined $2,500 for a chop block on a special teams play. Martin, who is now on injured reserve, was penalized on the play.
