Both players were fined $10,000 by director of football development Gene Washington for the fight.

Cox received an additional $7,500 fine by Commissioner Paul Tagliabue for spitting toward the Buffalo fans as he walked off the field.

Gardner was penalized an extra $5,000 by Tagliabue for trying to get into the Miami locker room, then trying to bait Cox off the Dolphins' team bus.
