Five best Ravens from the (unofficial) first half of the season
It might not feel like it after the Ravens dropped three of their past four games to go into their bye week with a 3-4 record, but several individuals have gotten off to excellent starts this season. Rush linebacker Terrell Suggs is an obvious one, but others have quietly been pretty good. In this week's Five for Friday, reporter and blogger Matt Vensel names the five best Ravens from the season's (unofficial) first half.

Suggs has bounced back after an injury-marred 2012 season and has resembled the player that was named the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year in 2011. Suggs has been the team's best all-around defender, ranking fifth in the league with eight sacks and second among Ravens with 53 tackles. If he keeps it up, he will be in the mix for DPOY again, but he should also be considered for Comeback Player of the Year.
