ALLEN PARK, Mich. – Ndamukong Suh hopes the focus will now be on his play — not all the fines and controversies he's dealt with throughout his young career.
Suh was drawing attention for all the right seasons Sunday, when he had two sacks and forced a fumble to help the Detroit Lions to a convincing 40-32 win over the Chicago Bears. It was a welcome step forward for the fourth-year defensive tackle, whose season began a few weeks ago with an illegal hit that earned him a hefty fine.
On Sunday, Suh helped the Lions score a touchdown. His hit on quarterback Jay Cutler in the third quarter caused a fumble, and teammate Nick Fairley returned it to the end zone to give Detroit a 37-16 lead.
