Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was a hero for the Seahawks once again as he scored the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter with a rushing touchdown.
Lynch got excited during this moment and grabbed his crotch, which was viewed as an obscene gesture by the NFL. They fined him $20,000 as a result for his actions.
The Seahawks running back has had to drain his bank account due to being fined for refusing to speak with the media, and this will put another dent in his net worth.
He also escaped further trouble with the league after complying with them on their rule against wearing gold cleats, which would have forced him to be banned from the game.
Lynch finished with 157 rushing yards and a touchdown on 25 carries against the Green Bay Packers despite being contained for the most part in the first half.
