Brawl: Matthew Stafford vs. D.J. Moore
By Kevin Seifert
CHICAGO -- I would say that Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is a tad upset with his performance Sunday afternoon.
Stafford just instigated a brawl that ended with Chicago Bears defensive back D.J. Moore getting ejected. During an interception return that was later called back, Stafford threw down Moore, with both of his hands on Moore's helmet. Moore got up, charged after Stafford and tackled him. Two Lions players quickly ripped Moore off Stafford before chaos broke loose near the Lions' bench.
The game had been getting chippier by the moment, beginning with a personal foul on Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley and then another by Bears linebacker Lance Briggs. But Stafford absolutely brought the aggression to a new level.
Stay tuned for post-game reaction on this one.
