NEW YORK – Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was fined $24,309 by the NFL on Friday for yelling at a game official last Sunday against Dallas.

At the end of the Cowboys’ 20-17 victory, Oakland quarterback Derek Carr fumbled the ball out of the end zone while trying to dive for a touchdown. The play was ruled a touchback. An angry Lynch shouted at a sideline official and needed to be restrained by teammates.

Lynch, who was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct, was suspended for one game in October after making contact with an official.

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard was fined $12,154 for yelling at an official and being penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct after a no-call on what he thought was pass interference by Philadelphia in the end zone on teammate Evan Engram on a fourth-down pass with 43 seconds left in the Eagles’ 34-29 win.

San Francisco’s Elvis Dumervil was docked $18,231 for roughing the passer on Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota, while 49ers teammate Eric Reid was fined $9,115 for an unnecessary roughness call.

Buffalo’s Deon Lacey, Houston’s Johnathan Joseph and Arizona’s Alex Boone were each fined $18,231 for horsecollar tackles.

Seattle safety Delano Hill was fined $12,154 after he was ejected from the Seahawks’ loss to the Rams for throwing punches at Los Angeles’ Mike Thomas in the third quarter on a punt. The Rams’ Nickell Robey-Coleman was fined $9,115 for unnecessary roughness during that game, while teammate Robert Quinn has to pay $12,154 for an unsportsmanlike conduct call.

Washington’s D.J. Swearinger was docked $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct. The Jets’ David Bass (facemask), Kansas City Charcandrick West (chop block) and Atlanta’s Ricardo Allen (late hit out of bounds) were each fined $9,115.
