Ravens news: Terrell Suggs compared to ‘Benjamin Button’ by Brandon Williams
The Baltimore Ravens opened their 2016-17 campaign with a loud 20-0 decimation of division rival Cincinnati Bengals on the road on Sunday, and a big reason why the Bengals didn’t register a single point on the board was the play of ageless wonder Terrell Suggs.
The Ravens’ linebacker, who’s about to turn 35 a month from now, had his fingerprints all over Baltimore’s defensive performance, taking down Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton twice while registering six total tackles and a forced fumble. The vintage performance from Suggs had teammate Brandon Williams wondering if they were watching a David Fincher flick unfold right before their eyes on the field, comparing Suggs to Benjamin Button.
“He has the Benjamin Button disease,” said defensive tackle Brandon Williams, referring to the movie where the main character ages in reverse.
With 116.5 total sacks in his career, Suggs is the Ravens’ all-time franchise leader in the category, and by the looks of things, he’ll add plenty more to that number. A grand opportunity comes next week for Suggs and the Ravens’ pass rush when Baltimore hosts the Cleveland Browns and their flimsy offensive line that surrendered seven sacks to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1.
