After the Ravens followed another marquee win with an embarrassing loss, Suggs voiced his dissatisfaction with the up-and-down season. But the outspoken linebacker managed to take solace in his belief that the Ravens still should enter the playoffs with a better record than the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers, who were 10-6 at the start of the 2010 postseason.
"(W)ithout struggle, there's no progress," Suggs told The Baltimore Sun after the game. "We're going to move forward. We're 6-3. It's not the end of the world. I remember how the Super Bowl champs were 10-6. We're not going to lose six games. We're just going to learn from here and wherever the road, however it plans out, however we've got to go do it, we're going to have to go do."
Looking at the schedule, the Ravens have four games against teams vying for playoff spots. They host the upstart Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Stadium this Sunday, and then John Harbaugh will square off against brother Jim on Thanksgiving when the San Francisco 49ers come to town. The Ravens visit the San Diego Chargers in Week 15 and end the season with a trip to Cincinnati.
