Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton has slammed the Detroit Lions' defense, stating that they are "a bunch of dirtbags".

The Lions have a history of questionable behaviour on the pitch, as defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been heavily fined by the NFL along with other members of their squad.

Sitton told Sports Radio 1250: "They go after quarterbacks, their entire defense takes cheap shots all the time. That's what they do, that's who they are. They're a bunch of dirtbags or scumbags.

"I mean, that's just how they play. That's how they're coached. That starts with their frickin' coach. That starts with their head coach, [Jim] Schwartz.

"He's a dick, too. I wouldn't want to play for him. It starts with him and their D-coordinator and their D-line coach. They're all just scumbags and so are the D-line."

The Packers face the Lions on Thursday with a 5-5-1 record in their season after week 12.
