Chiefs nose tackle Jaye Howard was fined $17,363 for his roughing-the-passer penalty on Buffalo quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the Chiefs’ 30-22 win over the Bills on Sunday.
Howard’s penalty came in the third quarter, when he stuck Taylor with the crown of his helmet after the ball had already come out. Taylor’s pass, which came on third down, would have resulted in a first down anyway — it was a 12-yard completion — but the penalty tacked on an additional 10 yards, and the Bills scored a touchdown on the next play.
Howard, who is in the midst of a strong contract year, finished the game with two tackles, a quarterback hit and a fumble recovery.
