Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso is no stranger to late hits on quarterbacks and the Bills took offense to the latest one during the second half of Week 17’s game.

Alonso’s hit on a sliding Josh Allen included a kick to the head as Alonso followed through and a fight broke out between the two teams. Alonso, Bills tackle Jordan Mills and Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn were ejected when all was said and done and all three heard from the league this week.

PFT has confirmed that Alonso and Quinn were fined $10,026 for unnecessary roughness while Mills was fined $13,369 for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Those weren’t the only fines handed out for actions in that game. Defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick was fined $10,026 for an unnecessary roughness penalty later in the game.

  1. That hit epitomizes the viciousness of the NFL. The punishment should have been much, much steeper, IMO.

    The best thing the NFL ever did was to start protecting the QBs. Josh Allen isn’t much (yet) but imagine if an Alonso-type put a cheap, dirty hit like that on DeShaun Watson? You then would have to watch Brandon Weeden finish the game (I could go on, a game ending cheap hit on Patrick Mahomes gets you Chad Henne…)

  2. Kiko has no talent-can’t cover and gets wiped out by offensive lineman so the only way he gets noticed is with his constant cheap shots. Classless-typical Dolphin.

  3. Unbelievable that Kiko didn’t get suspended. This has been a pattern all season with him. Cheap, dirty player… Wasn’t like that when he was playing for Buffalo. I guess Miami has a way with players….

    I was thinking the exact same thing. He’s a habitual offender. Should have been suspended 2-4 games.
    Josh Allen is fortunate that Alonso stinks on ice, Allen would probably still be in concussion protocol. That was the type of hit the NFL claims to be eliminating from the game.
    Disgusting!

  5. Watching Alonso the last two years this is a constant repeat. He’s the pile on artist of the NFL. He’s always removed from a play whenever a lineman gets anywhere near him. How his stats show he leads the league in tackles is beyon my sight. Another BS fact out of Miami. A real Steven Ross make believe .

  6. Longtime Dolphin fan chiming in :
    Kiko Alonso is hot garbage!
    He should’ve been suspended & his play is just atrocious!!
    If I’m Chris Grier the THIRD thing I do after hiring a competent HC & releasing Tannehill is
    kicking Alonso to curb !
    He played great after the trade but the last 2 years he’s doing more chasing down & piling on than a starter should be allowed…and he CANNOT shed blockers so what good is as a LB?

    Shouldn’t have even got a flag he missed him

    Really now? That wasn’t his leg whipping Allen straight to the head? And don’t tell me that wasn’t intentional. Just like when he head butted that QB earlier in the yeah with his arm out at his sides like “Hey I’m not doing anything here because my ARMS aren’t involved!”…
