The NFL fined the Bears defensive end Julius Peppers $5,000 for roughing up Stafford last Sunday in a 19-14 victory over the Lions. Peppers accidentally went to Stafford's head as he followed through with his motion during a first-quarter rush.
"I'm not going to appeal that,'' Peppers said. "My hand got high. I'd do the same thing again. I'm coming around his body to swipe the ball, and my hand hit his head.''
