The Bears beat the Lions 13-7 in a defensive struggle that left both QBs banged up last night.In the first half, Ndamukong Suh ripped down Jay Cutler by the shoulder and looked to slam his neck into the ground (gif below). No penalty was called, Cutler only missed one play, and after the game bears coach Lovie Smith downplayed the viciousness of the hit.
