Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin says that he accepts the NFL's decision to fine him.

Mike Tomlin has said that he has accepted the NFL's decision to fine him $100,000 (£61,000) for interfering from the Pittsburgh Steelers sideline.

Tomlin appeared to deliberately step on the field while Baltimore Ravens kick returner Jacoby Jones had the ball in the team's 22-20 win.

The head coach said: "As I stated yesterday, I take full responsibility for my actions, and I apologise for causing negative attention to the Pittsburgh Steelers organisation.

"I accept the penalty that I received. I will no longer address this issue as I am preparing for an important game this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins."

The league is also considering a Draft penalty for the team next year.
