Terrell Suggs refrained from giving the New England Patriots any bulletin board material after Saturday night's victory in Pittsburgh.
He did, however, make it clear that the Ravens have plans to prevent another golden playoff matchup between quarterbacks Tom Brady and either Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck.
"This is just the NFL. We all know the matchup the NFL wants to see – something for the TV. Something for the 'sponsors,'" Suggs said. "But we have faith in ourselves and Ravens Nation, and we'll see if we can disrupt some people's plans."
Suggs then smacked the podium, smiled, and walked out the door.
"Y'all enjoy it," he said on the way off stage.
The Ravens will head to New England Saturday for their fourth playoff meeting with the Patriots. It's a matchup that has become synonymous with January football in recent years, and the Ravens are out to end the Patriots' season for the second time in three years.
The rivalry with the Patriots has developed into one of the better AFC feuds. The teams have squared off seven times in the last six years, including three postseason meetings. Baltimore has won two of the three playoff meetings, with the Patriots holding a 3-1 record during the regular season.
"Everybody knows the history with these two teams," Suggs said. "We're going to play a football game. It's the Ravens vs. the Patriots. Everybody knows the storylines with this."
