Broncos’ Miller, Ward, Keo fined after AFC title game
Denver Broncos Von Miller, T.J. Ward and Shiloh Keo were fined $23,152 apiece for infractions in the AFC Championship Game, reports NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
Linebacker Miller was fined for unsportsmanlike conduct in Denver’s 20–18 win over New England. Miller drew the penalty for an emphatic celebration after sacking Patriots quarterback Tom Brady that included a questionable gesture.
Safeties Ward and Keo were fined for spearing and a hit on a defenseless player, respectively. Ward put a hit on receiver Brandon Bolden near the goal line, and Keo struck reveiverJulian Edelman in the head with a forearm.
