NFL fines Jets defensive end Henry Anderson $10,026 for blindside hit vs. Bills

Last Sunday on December Ninth New York Jets defensive end Henry Anderson took out some unnecessary rage against Buffalo Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka. Bills fans and NFL fans alike were not having it.

Here’s a video of the unsportsmanlike hit:

Per NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport:

“The Bills were angry about the cheap shot on kicker Stephen Hauschka. So was the league, as Jets defensive end Henry Anderson was fined $10,026 for his blindside hit — officially unnecessary roughness.”

Anderson is a fourth-year player with the New York Jets. Before joining the Jets, he was a member of the Detroit Lions. Always a backup defensive tackle or end, Anderson has had the best year of his career this season with three sacks and 27 tackles. Though he’s appeared in 13 games for the Jets, he’s only started in two of them due to the injuries of the starters.

This season the Jets are 4-9 and are ranked third in the AFC East Division under Head Coach Todd Bowles. They only average 20.8 points scored per game, which ranks 26th in the entire NFL. They allow 25.4 points per game, which ranks 22nd in the NFL. Overall, they are not a very good team.

Stephen Hauschka is a 10 year NFL veteran kicker. Known for his ability to hit field goals over 50+ yards, Hauschka isn’t the most accurate kicker. He’s only 87 percent from the field goal range on his career. He spent nearly six years with the Seattle Seahawks as their starting kicker before being signed the Buffalo Bills two years ago.
