ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — The National Football League has reportedly fined Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan over $10,000 for taunting Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer in the Bills 29-15 win last week.

Ryan thought he scored a touchdown to cut the Bills lead late in the fourth quarter and got up and in Jordan Poyer's face.

Officials later overturned the touchdown call as Ryan's knee was down before the goal line and the Falcons had to move back 15 yards.

The Falcons were unable to score and the Bills held on to win the game and clinch a playoff spot, while the Falcons were eliminated from playoff contention.
