Odell Beckham, Jr.'s Punch Of Duke Williams Earns Him A Fine

Giants wide receiver gets his just desserts after his cheap shot.

Much of the story after Sunday's disappointment against the Giants was the lack of discipline the Bills showed in the 4th quarter of the 24-10 defeat. Come to find out, the Giants weren't completely innocent, either.

As reported by Ryan Talbot on this blog, GIF's surfaced yesterday of Odell Beckham Jr. taking a clear punch at Duke Williams . According to ESPN sources, the league has decided to fine Beckham roughly $9,000.

Here's a close-up of the punch:

The Bills had received several post-play personal fouls in the moments preceding the right hook. In running interference for Stephon Gilmore after his interception of an Eli Manning pass near the goal line, Williams quite nicely obliterated Beckham. The punch was Beckham's response to what he felt was a cheap shot. Yesterday, various Bills spoke out against Beckham and mentioned that he complained throughout the game about the cornerbacks being too physical with him.

Any official confirmation of such a fine would likely be made later in the week by the league.
