Lions notes looks at Stephen Tulloch's fine, other fines from the Lions/Titans game, the announcers for this week's game and more.
- Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch received a fine of $21,000 from the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit in overtime on Tennessee Titans tight end Craig Stevens.
- Titans offensive lineman Leroy Harris received a fine of $10,000 for diving at Tulloch's legs on a late hit. Tulloch responded by shoving Harris, resulting in a flag, and Tulloch called out Harris over the late hit this week. Tulloch and Harris were actually teammates on the Titans and in college at North Carolina State, but there certainly doesn't appear to be any love lost between them.
- One more fine from last Sunday's game: Titans defensive end Scott Solomon received a $15,750 fine for a low hit on Matthew Stafford.
- Had the regular referees not returned this week, the referee for the Lions/Vikings game would have been the one from the Monday night mess in Seattle.
- Sunday's announcers for the Lions/Vikings game are going to be Thom Brennaman and Brian Billick. I hate FOX.
