The Green Bay Packers won a thriller on Sunday vs the Miami Dolphins. The Packers edged out the Dolphins 26-20 to keep their playoff hopes alive and improve to 7-8 on the season. After being down 20-10 late in the second quarter, the Packers scored 16 unanswered points. A big contributor to that win was veteran wide receiver Allen Lazard. He led the team with 61 receiving yards on five receptions. He also made an impact in the run game. Lazard has become an extremely successful down-field blocker in the run game and we see it week after week. This past week, however, Lazard was fined for something he did after he made a ridiculous block.
Allen Lazard Fined $10,609 For Taunting Against The Dolphins
Per Pro Football Talk, Packers WR Allen Lazard was fined $10,609 for taunting. This was based on pointing at and counting the trio of Miami defenders he took out on Sunday with one block. Below is the play referenced:

Packers Twitter had a field day with the news of the fine. Many fans didn’t think it was deserving of a fine. In-fact, many fans absolutely loved it when he pointed at the defenders he blocked.
Dude got fined for being badass lmao league soft.
