Lions-Bears Fight Results In Fines For Matthew Stafford, D.J. Moore

Matthew Stafford and D.J. Moore have both been fined for their roles in a Sunday fight, but it's the Chicago Bears safety who's been hit hardest in the wallet. Proving that it's not the guy who starts it, but the guy who retaliates who always gets in more trouble, Moore was fined $15,000 by the NFL. Stafford was fined just $7,500. His Detroit Lions teammate, offensive guard Rob Sims, was also fined $7,500 for joining the fight.

Stafford started the entire incident when he threw Moore to the ground following an interception. After the play was blown dead, while Stafford was on the ground, Moore retaliated by hitting the Lions QB. This started a large fight involving players from both teams, but Sims was the only player other than Moore and Stafford fined for his involvement in the fight.

VIDEO: Lions, Bears Decide To Fight Because Why Not?

The Detroit Lions are not having a very good day. Matthew Stafford has thrown a couple of pick sixes and his teammates aren't exactly giving him a lot of help. Perhaps frustrated with his fourth interception, Stafford took down Chicago Bears defensive back D.J. Moore while they were both in pursuit.

Moore, apparently annoyed Stafford took him down by the head, reacted by pouncing on Stafford after the play had been blown dead. Unfortunately for Moore, Stafford was surrounded by teammates, who quickly got involved, starting a mini scrum in an increasingly chippy game. Here's the wonderful video.

Moore was ejected on the play, the only player tossed out of the game. He definitely deserved it, but it wouldn't have been surprising to see a couple of Lions get the boot, as well.
