Brian Urlacher was fined $5,000 for unnecessary roughness/ late hit on an attempted block during Tommie Harris' return after a fumble recovery late in the first half.
Julius Peppers sacked and forced a fumble of Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford with less than 30 seconds remaining in the first half. Harris picked the ball up and headed for the left sideline. Urlacher was trying to help Harris get to the end zone, but Urlacher was flagged for a personal foul for his block on Lions guard Stephen Peterman.
The 15-yard penalty pushed the Bears to the Lions' 37, and they settled for a field goal to end the half.
