DETROIT - If the Chicago Bears really want someone to block Ndamukong Suh so badly, they need Nick Fairley.
Fairley was the only one who could contain Suh Sunday afternoon.
It was late in the third quarter when Suh forced a sack-fumble that resulted in Fairleys 4-yard scoop-and-score in the Lions 40-32 victory at Ford Field.
Suh raced off the field while Fairley and the rest of the defense celebrated in the end zone. But as Fairley came to the sideline, Suh ran up to give him a chest bump.
They jumped up and Fairley knocked Suh right to the ground.
Man down, man down.
Make that 6-foot-4, 307-pound beast down.
It doesnt happen very often.
He got me, Suh said. That belly just overcame everything.
Fairley, who is 6-4, 298 with a rather large midsection, admitted that his belly indeed got the best of Suh.
Yes it did, Fairley said. We got to work on our celebration. Big fellas might not need to jump. We just do a little hand shake or something. We aint jumping no more.

DETROIT -- Knee injury? What knee injury?
That had to be what the Chicago Bears defenders were asking themselves as they mostly watched Lions running back Reggie Bush run for 139 yards on 18 carries, an impressive 7.7 average.
