Suh was not flagged on the play, but in the NFL's initial ruling on the suspension, it described Rodgers as "in a defenseless posture." After Suh stepped back onto Rodgers the first time, he did so again with his other foot, "applying pressure and unnecessarily pushing off Rodgers’ unprotected leg with his left foot, violating playing rules prohibiting unnecessary roughness."
Having Suh active for Sunday's postseason opener is significant for the Lions, who ended the regular season 11-5, second in the NFC North behind the 12-4 Packers. The playoff game will be Detroit's first since January 2012, when it lost a wild card game to the New Orleans Saints.
The Cowboys (12-4) finished the regular season on a four-game winning streak, but went only 4-4 at home.
