The Patriots and Jets drew more than $72,000 in fines from the NFL for their sideline fight late in the fourth quarter of the Week 2 matchup at Gillette Stadium.

Vince Wilfork and teammates Michael Buchanan and Alfonzo Dennard each were hit with a $7,875 fine for throwing a punch.

The Jets drew heavier punishment: guard Willie Colon was docked $34,125 — $26,250 for contact with an official, and $7,875 for punching an opponent — and left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson was fined $15,000 for punching a Patriots player.

Defensive end Chandler Jones drew a separate fine by the NFL for hitting Jets quarterback Geno Smith in the head and neck area. The hit will cost Jones $15,750.
