The NFL hit Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb with a $10,300 fine on Saturday for his wave after scoring the game-winning touchdown in overtime last week against the New England Patriots.

Dak Prescott hit Lamb for a 35-yard TD in overtime at Gillette Stadium last Sunday, which gave the Cowboys the 35-29 win. After Lamb had strolled into the end zone and was hit by defensive back Jalen Mills, Lamb jumped up and waved goodbye in Mills’ face.

The NFL determined Saturday that Lamb’s celebration was considered unsportsmanlike conduct, and fined him just more than $10,000, according to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Though the fine certainly isn’t something Lamb wants to deal with, it’s hard to imagine he or the Cowboys will be too upset about it.

Lamb had a season-high 149 yards and two touchdowns on nine receptions in the win, which marked Dallas’ fifth straight headed into its bye week. He has 497 yards and four touchdowns on 33 receptions this season.

Prescott shined in the win, too, putting up a season-high 445 yards and three touchdowns while completing better than 70% of his passes against the Patriots. While he injured his calf on that final play with Lamb, Prescott and the Cowboys say that he’ll be ready to go for their next game on Oct. 31 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Lamb was one of three Cowboys players fined Saturday. Offensive lineman Connor Williams was fined $16,394 for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, and cornerback Trevon Diggs was fined $7,981 for unnecessary roughness.
