Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch has reportedly been fined for his actions against a referee in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Lynch was fined over $24,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct involving a referee. 

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr fumbled the ball out of the end zone on the team's final offensive play in a 20-17 loss against the Cowboys. 

After the officials reviewed and confirmed the ruling on the field of a turnover, Lynch was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct while arguing with the referee about the call. 

The 31-year-old Lynch was previously suspended for Oakland's game against the Buffalo Bills for grabbing a referee during the second quarter of a 31-30 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8. 

Following a one-year retirement in 2016, Lynch has had a successful comeback with the Raiders this season. He leads the team with 163 carries, 695 yards and seven touchdowns. 

The Raiders are 6-8 this season, two games behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West with two games remaining.
