Chiefs’ Nick Bolton fined for Super Bowl horse-collar tackle

The NFL has fined Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Nick Bolton $8,238 for his horse-collar tackle of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy in Super Bowl LVIII.

The incident drew a 15-yard penalty in the second quarter of the Chiefs’ 25-22 overtime victory in Las Vegas on Feb. 11.

Bolton’s fine, confirmed on Monday, was the only one issued for an infraction committed in that game. Chiefs cornerback L’Jarius Sneed drew a personal foul for unnecessary roughness but was not fined.

Bolton, 23, tied San Francisco’s Fred Warner for the game-high with 13 tackles. Bolton added one tackle for loss and two quarterback hits against the 49ers.

A second-round pick by the Chiefs in 2021, Bolton has recorded 352 tackles, two sacks and three interceptions in 41 career regular-season games (37 starts).
