After reviewing film, the NFL apparently didn't rule that there was a fight between the Bears and Detroit Lions last Sunday.
Here's exactly who got fined, how much and for what, from a league spokesman:
* Bears cornerback D.J. Moore was fined $15,000 for unnecessary roughness. "After the play, he struck an opponent late."
* Lions offensive lineman Rob Sims was fined $7,500 for unnecessary roughness, striking an opponent late.
* Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was fined $7,500 for unnecessary roughness, grabbing an opponent by the helmet opening.
* Lions rookie defensive tackle Nick Fairley was fined $15,000 for roughing the passer and "unnecessarily" driving an opposing quarterback into the ground.
* Bears receiver Earl Bennett was fined $10,000 for a uniform violation, wearing "dominantly orange shoes." It was his second offense.
* Lions defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch was fined $7,500 for unnecessary roughness, "unnecessarily" striking an opponent late.
Bears linebacker Lance Briggs was not fined for his hit on Calvin Johnson, although he was flagged. And Ndamukong Suh was not fined for ripping the helmet off of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.
My thoughts: It seems odd that Stafford, who started the entire scrum, was fined less than Moore. It also seems odd because $7,500 means so little to Stafford, a former No. 1 pick who received $41.75 million guaranteed, not to mention a base salary for this season that's also higher than Moore. Meanwhile, after taxes, Moore essentially played last Sunday's game for free.
