The play didn't draw a penalty flag, but the NFL's officiating office planned to review Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh's post-throw hit on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden this past Sunday.
In an NFL Media video from the series, "Behind Closed Doors: How a Hit Becomes a Fine," vice president of officiating Dean Blandino made note of the play because Suh lowered his head to hit the quarterback.
Suh hit Weeden immediately after he'd thrown the ball on the play late in the second quarter, and it looked like Suh used his hands to push Weeden down, rather than his head.
However, the NFL will likely consider Suh's past offenses, including a $100,000 fine earlier this season, in its review.
