The Miami Dolphins finished their 2017 season with a game against the Buffalo Bills. They did not finish that game with two of their top offensive weapons, however, as wide receiver Jarvis Landry and running back Kenyan Drake were both ejected after a fight erupted late in the game when Landry scored on a short touchdown pass. Landry felt the Bills had tried to grab him by the throat, well after the play was over, and Drake jumped into the melee, eventually throwing a Bills helmet 20 yards down the field.

The Dolphins pulled to within six points of the Bills a few minutes later, then recovered an onside kick, which could have allowed the team to win the game. Instead, the Dolphins lost to Buffalo, allowing the Bills to make the playoffs for the first time since 1999 and pushing Miami to a final record of 6-10.

Landry and Drake were both fined on Friday, according to a report from the NFL Network. Landry was fined $48,620 while Drake was fined $12,154. Bills cornerback Leonard Johnson was also fined, losing $12,154.

No suspensions were announced, meaning both players should be available for Miami’s Week 1 contest in 2018 - assuming the Dolphins re-sign Landry, who is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason.
