Fine time in the AFC West

Week 16 was an expensive week in the AFC West.

Four plays were dinged for infractions, totaling $65,000. Here is the breakdown, according to an NFL spokesman:

  • Denver receiver Brandon Stokley was fined $25,000 for making intentional physical contact with a game official.

  • Oakland tight end Tony Stewart was fined $25,000 for making intentional physical contact with a game official.

  • Oakland defensive lineman Richard Seymour was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness. After a play was over, he struck the opponent late.

  • Oakland cornerback Stanford Routt was fined $5,000 for unnecessary roughness. After a play was over, he head-butted an opponent.

Stokley, Stewart and Routt were all ejected from Sunday’s games for their infractions.
