Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, who has a career-high 13 sacks this season, will likely be considered in the media's NFL Defensive Player of the Year voting at the end of the regular season.
Suggs says he isn't sweating it, though, once again telling reporters that his main goal is a Super Bowl.
“I just ask myself how many Defensive Players of the Year -- with the exception of [Green Bay Packers cornerback] Charles Woodson -- have Super Bowl rings,” Suggs, who has also forced six fumbles this season, said Wednesday. “It definitely would be an honor, but I am in it for the overall No. 1 goal.”
At the end of his response, Suggs also took a playful jab at Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who remains a popular subject among players and media due in part to his open religious beliefs.
"I pretty much will leave it in God's hands, leave it in Tebow's hands," he said, drawing laughter.
Speaking of Tebow, there is still a chance that the Ravens could face Tebow and the Broncos a week from now. If the Ravens lose Sunday and the Broncos win the AFC West, the Ravens could travel to Denver next weekend for the AFC wild-card round. Hopefully for Suggs, Tebow isn’t a vengeful Tebow.Copyright © 2015, CT Now
