The NFL fined Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown twice—once for unsportsmanlike conduct and once more for a uniform violation—during Monday's 38-16 win over Washington

According to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler, the first fine stemmed from a 15-yard unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty Brown received for excessively celebrating following his second touchdown. The uniform violation was the result of his cleats being decorated with his No. 84 in white.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Brown was fined a combined $15,191 for his dance and shoes.

"Nothing to a boss," Brown said of the financial penalties, according to Fowler.

After he gashed Washington to the tune of eight catches for 126 yards and two touchdowns, Brown will be tasked with trying to solve a Cincinnati Bengals defense he struggled against throughout the 2015 season.

Although Brown snatched seven passes for 119 yards in the Steelers' 18-16 AFC Wild Card Round playoff win over the Bengals in January, he failed to crack 90 yards in both regular-season meetings against the Steelers' primary divisional foe.

Considering Pittsburgh mustered 10 points when it hosted Cincinnati last season, the Steelers should be motivated to feed Brown the ball Sunday at Heinz Field as they seek to start the season 2-0.
