This is the second time Suggs has been honored with the award this season. The 29-year-old was awarded the weekly honor after his first three sack performance in week one against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Overall, Suggs has claimed the award three times in his nine-year career.

Additionally, this marks the fourth time that a Ravens linebacker has received this honor this season.

Suggs’ three sacks helped the Ravens tie a franchise record with nine sacks in their victory over the 49ers.
