Suh drew scrutiny from NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino.
"We're going to aggressively enforce player safety fouls," Blandino said in an NFL video. "When I looked at the play, I felt that he did make contact with the forehead-hairline. Lowered the head and made contact with the forehead-hairline. Not to the head or neck, but the rule does prohibit that contact to the body."
Suh has been fined twice this season, seven times in his career for over $200,000 in fines.
"There's always going to be a microscope on me," Suh told Detroit reporters. "I think there's been a microscope on me since I was first drafted in 2010 because I was a first-round pick. But I think there is always going to be a microscope on me no matter where it is, from outside media, from the NFL to little kids to anybody. There's going to be somewhat of a microscope. My face is out there. That's become a part of life."
Earlier this season, Suh was fined $100,000 for a low block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan.
"Do I think it's fair? Nothing in life is fair," Suh said. "It's a double-edged sword. Being successful and having some success in the game is obviously going to garner attention, and I think that's something people deal with in negative ways and positive ways. It's just people get attention, and that's the way it works."
