Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew says he's sorry for his actions in last weekend's loss at New Orleans.
Pettigrew was called for a personal foul in the fourth quarter of Detroit's 31-17 loss.

As children, we tease and gossip and bully each other until we (mostly) conform, rounding off each other’s sharper corners so as to better get along. As adults...
A year ago, the Lions positioned themselves as the spoiler. Four games remained after another 2-10 disappointment, but closet psychologist Jim Schwartz impressed upon his players to not trust their lying eyes and trick their minds into believing there remained something meaningful in those final four games. The brainwashing worked.
There's just a touch of irony to Detroit Lions center Dominic Raiola telling reporters that his team needs to grow the **** up by way of a tantrum.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Vikings have had their share of undisciplined and ill-timed penalties this season.
Watching what has happened to the Detroit Lions the past two weeks has been eye-opening even to 2-10 Minnesota, though. Detroit has started to earn a reputation as a dirty team, including last week, when it was flagged 11 times for 107 yards.
