DeAndre Levy: 'NFL becoming a joke'

Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy labels the NFL's decision to fine him for a rough tackle on Ryan Taylor on Thanksgiving a joke.

Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy has labelled the NFL's decision to fine him for a rough tackle on Ryan Taylor a "joke".

Levy looked to have hit Taylor as the Green Bay Packers tight end caught a long pass during the sides' encounter on Thanksgiving, which saw the Lions run out comfortable 40-10 victors.

"It's a joke, man. The NFL's becoming a joke with some of these calls," said Levy, according to the Detroit News.

The Lions are back in action on December 8 as they face Philadelphia Eagles.
