The NFL fined Raiders receiver Johnny Holton $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Holton gave Patriots cornerback Jonathan Jones an open-hand smack on the helmet after a Derek Carr incompletion to Holton in the fourth quarter. Holton slapped Jones in front of side judge Allen Baynes, who immediately threw his flag.

The Raiders overcame the 15-yard penalty with their only touchdown in the 33-8 loss.

Holton had no catches on two targets.

  1. he didn’t like being pushed in the back when he was already clearly out of bounds….but have to keep in mind that if not running into the punter call, they patriots had no other flags against them the entire game.

    Says the guy who is on PROFOOTBALLTALK site. Guess he lied to God because why is he reading about the NFL.

  4. So fans of the Raiders – who are routinely totally undisciplined and among the most penalized teams in the NFL – are complaining that their team got penalized a lot? You wouldn’t think you guys would be used to it after 40 of the exact same stuff.

    Here’s a thought, since the hater is always more disturbed than the hated how about you first?

  6. The Patriots are coached to cheap shot. The push in the back was one. They WWE elbow drop all the time to players laying on the ground and their DB’s constantly roll on the ground and plant their knees in stomachs when getting up. It’s like they practice it.
