KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Two Kansas City Chiefs players have received fines for “unsportsmanlike conduct,” according to reports.

NFL.com reporter Tom Pelissero reported Saturday that Eric Fisher was fined more than $14,000 for dumping two beers on himself last week as he celebrated the Chiefs’ win over the Houston Texans. Damien Williams was fined more than $10,500 for the act of "dropping the ball in front of Texans NT Brandon Dunn after Williams scored a touchdown."

Fisher took the drinks from a fan and, similar to pro wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, dumped the beers over his head in celebration. That fan, from Springfield, Missouri, has since been in contact with Fisher.

The fines come ahead of the Chiefs taking on the Tennessee Titans at 2:05 p.m. Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium in the AFC Championship Game and a trip to Miami for the Super Bowl.

A previous version of this story stated that the Chiefs will face the Texans on Sunday.
