Ndamukong Suh Gets Kicked Out Of Game As Packers Dump The Lions 27-15
First, let me say “Happy Thanksgiving everybody!” Today’s NFL game on FOX featured the Detroit Lions vs. the Green Bay Packers. The Packers came into the game with a 10-0 record and the Lions were at 7-3.
The game was close early on, with Green Bay only leading 7-0 at half time but the Packers pulled away in the second half, primarily by some stupid penalties by the young Detroit Lions team and some picks thrown by Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.
The Lions found out the hard way that if you give Aaron Rodgers and the Packers extra first downs, they will make you pay. And that’s what happened in the second half. But the play of the game may have been when Ndamukong Suh got thrown out because of a bonehead play on his part.
Suh had the Packers Evan Dietrich-Smith on the ground and was trying to slam his head into the turf about three times. Then Ndamukong Suh started kicking Dietrich-Smith as he was lying on the ground. The refs immediately threw Suh out of the game. The Lions second year defensive tackle will be hearing from the league office very soon and he may end up with a suspension as well. It was a dirty play no doubt about it!
Ndamukong Suh has been accused of being a dirty player in his young NFL career and this incident today seems to verify that fact. Suh has said that he is not dirty but when you see what he did today, it makes you wonder. Suh’s act really hurt his Lions team because it gave the Packers a first down and an eventual score.
There is little question that Suh is a great young player and may be headed to a hall of fame career, but he has got to control his emotions on the field. After that play, the Packers went on to roll the Lions 27-15.
Aaron Rodgers was 22 for 32 and passed for 307 yards with 2 touchdowns and zero interceptions. On the other side, the Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had a miserable day. Stafford passed for 276 yards with a touchdown, but he also threw 3 killer interceptions. You have to give the kid credit though because he is playing with a bad finger and was wearing protective gloves. On Fox’s pre-game show today, Terry Bradshaw was showing how Stafford is trying to grip and throw the football basically with only four fingers. With today’s game, the Green Bay Packers improve their NFL best record to 11-0 and the Detroit Lions fall to 7-4.
