It didn’t take Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh long to pick up a costly penalty today in Green Bay.
On the Packers’ first drive, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw an incomplete pass on third down, and it appeared that the Packers would need to punt. But the officials called a penalty on Suh for tripping, as he stuck his leg out to try to trip Rodgers as Rodgers was escaping the pocket.
Suh appeared to be complaining to the officials that he was getting held on the play, but holding was not called.
Instead of punting, the Packers continued to march down the field and ended up kicking a field goal on the drive, taking an early 3-0 lead.
