On Buffalo’s first offensive play of the first half on Sunday, Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware sacked Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, giving him 13 sacks this season. On Buffalo’s first offensive play of the second half, Ware hit Fitzpatrick just after a pass, giving Ware a 15-yard penalty.
Now Ware has a $15,000 fine to go with that penalty.
Charean Williams of the Star-Telegram reports that the NFL fined Ware $15,000 for the penalty, noting that Ware hit Fitzpatrick in the head and neck area, which is a major no-no in the NFL.
Ware is second in the NFL in sacks, just behind Vikings defensive end Jared Allen, who has 13.5 this year.
