I asked him Monday about the difference between this Ravens defense and the rest.
"Joe Flacco," Suggs answered. "He's been balling. You don't have to do much when you got a quarterback that's balling."
That's oversimplifying things, but Suggs makes a strong point. The Ravens held Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos offense to only 21 points and Tom Brady's New England Patriots to 13 points, yet this Ravens group has been anything but flashy. Suggs has not been effective because of injuries. Ray Lewis is inspiring, and even Haloti Ngata had a down year.
"We've had defenses that you guys have given names to ... but those defenses don't have a ring," Suggs said.
Even the defensive players know it.
