NEW YORK (AP) — Four Detroit Lions, including quarterback Matthew Stafford, and two Chicago Bears have been fined by the NFL for incidents in their game last Sunday.

Stafford instigated a scuffle when he grabbed the helmet of Bears defensive back D. J. Moore and threw him to the ground. Stafford has been fined $7,500, while Moore is hit for $15,000 for striking back at Stafford and being ejected.

Also docked $15,000 is Lions rookie DT Nick Fairley for driving Bears QB Jay Cutler into the ground.

Chicago receiver Earl Bennett has been fined $10,000 for wearing orange shoes, his second uniform violation.

Detroit DE Kyle Vanden Bosch is docked $7,500 for unnecessary roughness: Vanden Bosch threw Bears RB Matt Forte to the ground late.

Detroit guard Rob Sims also has been hit for $7,500 for a late tackle.
