Four players involved in the fight that took place at the end of the New England Patriots' win over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX have been fined.

The fight broke out after the Patriots, leading by four points, kneeled the ball with only seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.

Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin and defensive lineman Michael Bennett were fined $10,000 and $8,268, respectively, for unnecessarily striking an opponent, while Patriots tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Michael Hoomanawanui were both docked $8,268 for their actions in the skirmish.
