 IRVING, Texas (AP) -Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was fined $25,000 by the NFL for publicly criticizing referee Ed Hochuli.
It is the first time that Jones, who has owned the team 20 seasons, has been fined by the NFL.
Jones didn't talk to reporters in the locker room Sunday after the Cowboys' 26-24 loss to the Washington Redskins.
Jones told reporters two weeks ago that Hochuli was one of the most criticized officials. The owner followed up that on his weekly radio show with comments about how Hochuli's crew calls a lot of penalties.

Hochuli was at the center of another questionable call Sunday, flagging Julius Peppers for a roughing-the-passer penalty that wiped out Carolina's interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter against Atlanta, though the Panthers went on to a 24-9 victory.
