Terrell Suggs: Andrew Luck's really (expletive) good

The Baltimore Ravens know they have bigger things to contend with on Sunday than that nasty rumor of piped-in crowd noise at Lucas Oil Stadium.

That challenge begins with Andrew Luck, who's playing as well as any quarterback in the league right now. Over the past two weeks -- spanning two blowout wins -- Luck has completed 75 percent of his attempts (60 for 80) for 763 yards, eight touchdowns and one interception.

Now the Ravens are tasked with trying to slow the Indianapolis Colts star down. Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs paid the quarteback a legitimate (and profane) compliment Wednesday.

"We're real impressed with the kid and we don't say that a lot," Suggs said, according to CSN Baltimore. "Usually we come up here and play the political game, we're like, 'Oh, this guy can make every throw' and 'This guy's pretty good,' but this guy's actually really (expletive) good.

"He is really good and he can run, he ran like a 4.5 or something at the combine so he's out running most defensive ends and everything. It's going to be a fun, entertaining game."

Luck has faced the Ravens just once, a 24-9 wild card loss in the 2012 playoffs. A rookie at the time, Luck didn't throw a touchdown pass and posted a 59.8 passer rating. The Ravens will face a far superior quarterback Sunday.
