Dak Prescott hit Lamb for a 35-yard overtime touchdown at Gillette Stadium last Sunday, which saw the Cowboys win 35-29. After Lamb wandered into the end zone and was hit by defensive back Jalen Mills, Lamb jumped up and said goodbye to Mills.
The NFL determined on Saturday that Lamb’s celebration was considered unsportsmanlike conduct and fined him just over $ 10,000, according to Tom Pelissero of the NFL network.
While the fine is certainly not something Lamb wants to deal with, it’s hard to imagine that he or the Cowboys will be too upset about it.
Lamb recorded a record 149 yards and two touchdowns in nine receptions in the victory, marking Dallas’ fifth straight week before his week off. He has 497 yards and four touchdowns on 33 receptions this season.
Prescott also shone in the win, scoring a record 445 yards and three touchdowns while completing over 70% of his passes against the Patriots. While he injured his calf in that last game with Lamb, Prescott and the Cowboys say he’ll be ready to play in their next game on Oct. 31 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Lamb was one of three Cowboys players fined on Saturday. Offensive lineman Connor Williams was fined $ 16,394 for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, and cornerback Trevon Diggs was fined $ 7,981 for unnecessary roughness.
