The NFL has ruled on a potential fine for Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Tyrann Mathieu for his Super Bowl incident with Tom Brady.
Brady had the last laugh, of course, as the Bucs beat the Chiefs, 31-9, on way to a Super Bowl win. However, Brady reportedly apologized to Mathieu following the game.
The National Football League has ruled on fines for the Super Bowl for penalties, hitting Bucs defensive back Antoine Winfield Jr. with one. Winfield Jr. made sure to taunt Tyreek Hill once the Super Bowl result was in hand.
Mathieu, though, is not being hit with a fine.
“No fine for Chiefs S Tyrann Mathieu for his verbal altercation with Bucs QB Tom Brady after Antonio Brown’s touchdown,” NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport tweeted.

“Listen, Tom Brady’s a great quarterback. I never really saw that side of Tom Brady, to be honest,” Mathieu admitted following the game, via Pro Football Talk. “But whatever. No comment. it’s over with. I’m done with it.”
