Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen: Among the Latest NFL Stars Smacked with a Fine
The NFL’s fine of quarterback Josh Allen has been highly criticized, but it might not be the most outrageous. Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs also got hit with a hefty fine, $21,855 to be exact, for lowering his head to initiate contact on a red zone run in his team’s 30-6 win over the New York Giants in Week 9. On Saturday, a former NFL star and three-time AP Defensive Player of the Year, J.J. Watt, called it “stealing money” via Twitter (also known as X). Jacobs also took to social media to voice his displeasure, tagging the NFL’s Twitter account and saying, “y’all gotta chill with this BS.”

His last turnover-free game came against the Miami Dolphins in early October, a 48-20 Bills win.
