VIDEO: Lions Ndamukong Suh's Personal Foul Penalty On Jay Cutler Has Jim Schwartz Confused

Ndamukong Suh, defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions, has been known to be a bit rough when it comes to sacking the opponents quarterback, but Lions head coach Jim Schwartz doesn’t believe Suh should have been flagged for his hit on Jay Cutler over the weekend.

“It’s been reported that the flag was thrown because Cutler was hit in the back of the head when he was in the process of going down. I think it’s fairly obvious that neither of those ended up being correct,” Schwartz during a press conference Monday. " I know he wasn’t hit in the head and I know he wasn’t going down, I know that for sure. There are a lot of things that somebody thinks they see on the field, they think he stepped out of bounds but he really didn’t, or they think it was a facemask and it really wasn’t. That stuff occurs, it happens in the game."

Looking at the video, shown below, it seems that Schwartz is right to be confused.
