Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs has already set a career-high in sacks with 13 with three games remaining, and he is now in striking distance of Peter Boulware’s team record of 15 set in 2001.
Suggs’ previous career-best in sacks was 12, which he achieved in his rookie year in 2003. The major difference from Suggs back then compared to today, is that he now has a variety of moves to get to quarterbacks instead of solely relying on his speed to the outside.
Now, Suggs uses power because of his strong upper body, and he is also changing direction better this season than in years past. Also, it doesn’t hurt that the Ravens have moved Suggs all around the line of scrimmage this season, shifting him from left to right and even lining him up the middle to attract attention.
