The NFL is fining Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston more than $12,000 for coming off the sideline in the 3rd quarter and poking Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore in the back of the head, according to ESPN. 

That poked began a confrontation that included Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans blindsiding Lattimore and knocking him to the ground. The league suspended Evans one game for the hit.

The incident prompted New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton after the game to question why Evans wasn't ejected.
