NFL fines Arden Key $6,752 for grabbing Ryan Fitzpatrick’s facemask

USA TODAY Sports

The play forever will go down as memorable or forgettable depending on which side is remembering it. But the Dolphins beat the Raiders last Saturday in the only possible way they could have with seconds remaining.

With 19 seconds left, it took both a 34-yard completion and a facemask penalty on the same play for the Dolphins to produce some Fitzmagic.

To add insult to the loss, the NFL has fined Raiders defensive end Arden Key $6,752 for unnecessary roughness, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

Key finished with two tackles and two quarterback hits.

The Raiders are eliminated from postseason contention, while the Dolphins are within a victory of making the playoffs.

  1. No doubt he deserved it but interesting that the NFL chose to ignore the hold and take down the lineman did on him. You can clearly see it in the picture they show with him face making Fitz. Not surprised though.

  2. Thats tough for a player that already cost his team in a big way just needs to play smarter thats one of the more memorable plays for this dolphins fan

  3. Seeing that ball still in his hand, and his head already ripped sideways, that has to go down as one of the greatest throws in NFL history.

  4. “roger, we gotta fine this guy, but idk how much”
    “ok got you. a ticket to the superbowl is $1000, iPhones for my family are $5000, a new door is $500, groceries $100, and that one painting kit I always wanted is $62. So fine him $6752”
    “cool thanks”

    They were making up for the no call push off on the td and the horrible pi call on the next long bomb the raiders took.

    Once again, the Refs beat the Raiders. Right, Oak/LA/Oak/LV Nation

    Raiders 37
    Donks 12

    it will be worse tomorrow

    I don’t know. I thought they were trying as hard as they can to help the raiders win this game,especially in the 4th quarter

    did the math wrong though but the point still stands

  9. Some people on this make me laugh. Perhaps they learn this from playing cards. Winners count there money and go home. Loesser Cry out loud and say deal the cards as the Dolphins are on there way to the airport. Bill

  10. So Kamara wears non-conforming cleats. $5000
    This guy just about removed the head of a QB via his facemask. $6700.

    Yup. Makes sense.
