When Terrell Suggs lifted himself off of Newton on the final play of the Panthers’ first drive last Sunday, he thought his frustrating streak without a sack was finally over. He even did a little dance.
However, he learned later that he only got credited for a half sack, sharing it with fellow outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil.
“I’m definitely fighting the NFL on that,” Suggs said laughing. “I’m definitely sending [the tape] in.”
Suggs didn’t have a sack in the Ravens’ first three games and he was also held without one for seven of the final eight games last year. However, he was in Newton’s face throughout last week’s game and the Ravens are going to need more of the same against Andrew Luck and the Colts’ high-powered offense.
“All I can do is just continue to go to work,” Suggs said. “It’d be one thing if we were getting lit up for 400 yards passing and [if teams were] putting up 40 points on [us]. Then people would say the lack of pass rush is the reason the Ravens get lit up, but it’s not that. A big part of why we’re 3-1 is because [of] what opposing offenses have to do against our pass rush. I don’t think I’ve broken the ice yet. I’m still going to go to work until I get one.”
