Week 13 Like/Dislike
The league fined Watt $15,750 for striking Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in the head/neck area. That penalty took place late in the fourth quarter and would have set up Detroit in field-goal position, at the 30-yard-line, to win the game. It's not a stretch to say that missed call could have cost the Lions a win.
Other fines from around the league:
» Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall was fined $35,750 for two penalties against the Dallas Cowboys. Hall drew a $20,000 fine for a horse-collar tackle and a $15,750 fine for a late hit. Meanwhile, Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness after he elbowed Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon after a touchdown.
» Texans safety Brandon Harris was fined $21,000 for unnecessary roughness after he hit a defenseless receiver on a punt return. That was Detroit Lions receiver Stephan Logan, who also drew a fine of his own, being docked $7,875 for unnecessary roughness (facemask). Suh was fined earlier in the week for kicking Texans quarterback Matt Schaub.
