Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is often viewed as the NFL’s dirtiest player.
During the Lions' 34-24 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Suh showed there is a good reason why.
Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder attempted a pass to Jerome Simpson that was tipped by rookie cornerback Darius Slay on Sunday. Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy caught the ball and raced 33-yards for a touchdown, but that score was nullified because Suh was penalized for an illegal low block.
During that run, Suh tried to take out the knees of Vikings lineman John Sullivan. Instead of trying to block Sullivan up high, Suh intentionally lowered his body and hit Sullivan low. Sullivan was not hurt on the play, but Suh definitely added to his long list of questionable actions on that play.
Suh has been fined by the NFL twice on Thanksgiving Day for his misconduct. He stomped Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith, plus kicked Houston Texas quarterback Matt Schaub last season. He previously was named the league’s most disliked athlete.
It is probably safe to assume Sullivan is not a fan of Suh after that play.
