Ravens' Suggs talks a good game ahead of Steelers showdown

Never one to hide his thoughts, particularly when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs expounded Wednesday on the Ravens' upcoming rematch with their AFC North rivals.

"There is the Super Bowl and then there is Ravens-Steelers. Everybody will be watching this game," Suggs said, according to The Baltimore Sun.

The Ravens opened the season with a 35-7 win over the Steelers in Baltimore -- a game in which Suggs had three sacks of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger -- but Suggs said there'll motivation on both sides Sunday.

"They're definitely going to have some 'Let's get after them' to their game. But in hindsight, who knocked us out of the playoffs last year? In 2008, a certain team beat us to go to the Super Bowl, and danced all over the field, held up the AFC Championship trophy. We had to sit by and watch that. There's a little salt in the wound on both sides."
