The NFL has handed down decisions on several unfortunate moments from the Cowboys’ Week 5 blowout win over the New York Giants. By and large, the Dallas players involved (or, in one case, alleged to have been involved) came out relatively unscathed.

Safety Damontae Kazee will be a little lighter in the wallet for his shove of Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney. Toney was ejected for throwing a punch at Kazee during the fourth quarter of last week’s game; he has now been fined $12,875 by the league, as per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. He apologized for the incident and avoided a suspension by the league.

Kazee received a $6,264 fine, it was announced Saturday. He was penalized during the game for unnecessary roughness.

Rookie linebacker Jabril Cox made a key stop of Giants quarterback Daniel Jones on a quarterback keeper near the end zone. His tackle of Jones prevented a touchdown on the play, but it resulted in Jones leaving the game on a cart and entering concussion protocol. The hit did not result in a penalty, though, and the league has now determined that Cox will not be fined for a helmet-to-helmet hit. Most observers felt it was actually Jones who lowered his helmet to initiate contact.

Finally, Giants tight end Evan Engram made allegations during the week that Cowboys safety Jayron Kearse threw a punch at him during postgame handshakes. Kearse will not be fined, though, as no clear video evidence could be found to prove Engram’s claim, reported Pelissero.
