BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Saturday Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Cody Ford was fined $28,075 for unnecessary roughness on the illegal blindside block he was penalized for in last week's game versus the Houston Texans.

The original penalty called on Ford was already the talk of social media following the team's loss, as some fans thought it was a questionable call and it also knocked the Bills out of range of kicking a possible game-winning field goal.

Due to the questionable penalty call and questionable fine, a GoFundMe titled "Cody Ford’s LEGAL Blindside hit fine" was created by Nathan Lopreste to help pay for Ford's fine.

The GoFundMe says: "This block should have never been a penalty. Now, to add insult to injury he gets fined!"

As of Saturday evening almost $2,000 has been raised.

Ford saw the GoFundMe was created and commented on Twitter that the proceeds from it will be donated to a local Buffalo charity.
