Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is doing nothing to dispel the notion that he’s a dirty player — and he’ll do nothing the rest of the way to help Detroit beat Green Bay today.
Suh has been ejected for kicking Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith early in the third quarter. It’s the second ejection of a rough-and-tumble Thanksgiving game between these two NFC North rivals; Green Bay’s Pat Lee was ejected late in the second quarter.
The personal foul penalty on Suh was incredibly costly: It came after the Lions had stopped the Packers on third down, but with the automatic first down the Packers scored on a John Kuhn run up the middle.
Overall the Lions have been called for 10 penalties for 77 yards, and they trail 14-0 in the third quarter.
