NFL notes: Raiders’ Marshawn Lynch fined $24,309 for yelling at game official

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.
