Marcus Peters has not had a good week. The Chiefs suspended the cornerback one game without pay for prematurely leaving the field Sunday, and the NFL now has fined Peters for throwing an official’s flag into the stands. The suspension for Sunday’s game will cost Peters $72,320 of his base salary. The fine will cost him another $24,309 for unsportsmanlike conduct (non-physical offense against a game official). Peters’ flag toss came late in the Chiefs’ 38-31 loss to Jets as his frustration boiled over with a defensive holding call on cornerback Steven Nelson that negated a two-point stop.
