Bears Vs. Lions Update: Fight Breaks Out In Chicago

It should come as no surprise that things have started to get chippy in the key NFC North matchup between the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions. After a personal foul call on Nick Fairley following a clear late hit on Chicago QB Jay Cutler, it was clear that this physical matchup might lead to some fireworks.


The primary culprits in this brawl are Detroit QB Matthew Stafford and Chicago CB DJ Moore. Stafford, who threw his third interception of the game at the start of this play, threw Moore down by his helmet at the end of the play. Moore clearly wasn't happy about this, which resulted in the hit on Stafford that led to the melee. Moore was ejected from the game, while Stafford somehow managed to avoid being tossed.
