OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The sacks and accolades keep mounting for Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, whose relentless pursuit of quarterbacks has put him in the running for NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors.
Suggs shrugs off the attention as if it was a 235-pound rookie offensive tackle. He has a career-high 13 sacks, but he's still chasing a prize that has eluded him throughout his entire career: a Super Bowl ring.
Asked Wednesday at the team training facility whether he's enjoying the best season of his career, Suggs replied with a question of his own.
He pointed at a banner of the Lombardi Trophy and asked, "How many of those I got? If we fall short, it's all null and void."
The Ravens (10-3) next face San Diego (6-7) on Sunday night.
