Philadelphia Eagles' Fletcher Cox ejected for punching a Lion

After the game, Cox told Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer that he had punched a Lions player.

"I can't afford to do that," Cox told McLane.

The incident occurred on the extra-point attempt following Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford's 1-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter, Birkett reported.

Both players had been called for penalties earlier in the game. Cherilus had incurred a penalty for unnecessary roughness with 4:52 left in the first quarter. Cox was called for illegal use of hands in the second quarter.
