Before the Buffalo Bills defeated the New England Patriots on Sunday, the two sides were involved in a pre-game scuffle that had multiple players and coaches get involved. It all started with Bills safety Robert Blanton pushing Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett, and they were quickly surrounded by a crowd of players in a shoving match that saw some punches thrown.

According to John Wawrow of The Associated Press, Blanton, cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman, and safety Aaron Williams were all fined by the National Football League for their involvement in the event. Blanton was fined $21,000, Robey-Coleman $10,000, and Williams said to the AP of his fine, "It's up there."

The NFL has yet to formally announce their fines from the previous week, but at this time, at least three Bills have been fined for the incident.
