Jets: The Jets in­ter­viewed former Pack­ers coach Mike McCarthy for their head coach­ing job. McCarthy is the third known in­ter­view New York has con­ducted since fir­ing Todd Bowles last Sun­day night. The Jets met with Chiefs of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Eric Bie­niemy on Wed­nes­day, and former Dol­phins coach Adam Gase on Fri­day. Bron­cos: John El­way flew to Bos­ton to in­ter­view Pa­tri­ots lineback­ers coach and de­fen­sive play caller Brian Flores about the Bron­cos’ head coach­ing va­cancy. Flores, 37, also in­ter­viewed with the Pack­ers and Dol­phins about their open­ings. Flores, who played line­backer at Bos­ton Col­lege, broke into the NFL in the Pa­tri­ots’ scout­ing depart­ment in 2004 and moved onto Bill Belichick’s coach­ing staff in 2008.

Fines: 49ers safety An­tone Exum Jr. was fined $53,482 by the NFL for his hit on Rams wide re­ceiver Robert Woods last Sun­day. Exum was pe­nal­ized for un­nec­es­sary rough­ness on the play, in which he hit Woods in his mid­sec­tion in the third quar­ter of the 49ers’ 48-32 loss while break­ing up a deep pass.

Mi­ami’s Kiko Alonso and Robert Quinn were docked $10,026 for un­nec­es­sary rough­ness, and Buf­falo’s Jor­dan Mills was fined $13,369 for un­sports­man­like con­duct af­ter they were all ejected for their roles in a skir­mish be­tween the teams last Sun­day.

With Bills quar­ter­back Josh Allen al­ready slid­ing in the third quar­ter of Buf­falo’s 42-17 win, Alonso dived in front of him and kicked the quar­ter­back in the hel­met. A scuf­fle broke out amid a group of play­ers, and Quinn ran in and dived atop the pile.
