Lynch was ejected from the game after he shoved a referee during an altercation in the second quarter.
Jon Runyan, the NFL VP of Football Operations, noted in a letter to Lynch: "You made deliberate physical contact with one of our game officials as he was diffusing an active confrontation between players".

As such, Lynch's actions were not only completely out of line, but also entirely unsurprising at once. After seeing some Raiders offensive linemen take offense after Peters' hit, Lynch came out in what appeared to be an effort to play peacemaker before grabbing the official.
Lynch, who watched the Raiders' comeback 31-30 victory from the stands, will be allowed to rejoin the team October 30.
