The NFL fined Chargers defensive lineman Joey Bosa for a low hit on Patriots quarterback Cam Newton, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

The fine was for $15,000 for roughing the passer.

Officials penalized Bosa for roughing the passer with 9:41 remaining in the third quarter. The half-the-distance penalty gave the Patriots a first-and-goal from the 7-yard line, and New England scored a touchdown three plays later.

The Patriots beat the Chargers 45-0.

  1. I used to feel that Cam never got a fair shake with roughing the passser calls, compared to the like of Brady or Rodgers. Now I realize it’s because he’s not a passer.

  2. That’s ridiculous,and I’m a Pats fan. As Bosa was closing in on Newton, the Pats Olineman he beat pushed Bosa down from behind into Newton’s legs. Being the class act that he is, Bosa immediately apologized to Newton, even though it was accidental. He should appeal.

  3. I was hoping Newton would have an 8-W 8L record this year. I know a 6-7 record is not far off but i know a better than average QB would probably have 10 wins and 6 losses this year. Cam is not the answer other than a temporary player who can be a place holder. Pats have got to move on from him.

    Or it’s because he just never got a fair shake. The opening season Broncos game following the superbowl was proof of that.

  5. I’m sure if Mr. Bosa asks politely, the #BillsMafia will pay this fine due to their total disdain for anything New England.

  6. Whatever Cam is, he’s NOT the guy. Play Stidham and see if he’s the guy. Or, maybe you already know he isn’t.
