Terrell Suggs (baltimoreravens.com) The Baltimore Ravens defense displayed a standout performance during Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. After letting up 203 rushing yards in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, the Ravens defense proved that they could put their mistakes behind them and regroup. The team held the Dolphins to only 22 rushing yards in the Week 5 matchup. Linebacker Terrell Suggs helped lead the team to a 26-23 victory over the Dolphins, notching three sacks on Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Suggs has been one of the main components on the Ravens defense this season and has stepped up in a big way. The linebacker’s three sacks adds up to seven so far this season with at least one sack per game, which sets a franchise record. After missing part of last season with a torn Achilles, Suggs has focused most of his attention on making up for lost time. He has come back this season to make a statement and for once, it has nothing to do with what he has to say that is turning heads. Typically, Suggs is tied to controversy over something he said, like calling Skip Bayless names on ESPN’s First Take, for example. But now, football fans can’t seem to take their eyes off of Suggs whenever he is on the field. “That guy is a freak of nature,” said Ravens safety James Ihedigbo. “He played phenomenal. That second-half performance made our job in the secondary so much easier.” All three of Suggs’ sacks came in the fourth quarter, leading to a Dolphins turnover that ultimately resulted in the Ravens marching downfield to kick the game-winning field goal. Suggs has his eyes on taking back the Defensive Player of the Year title, which he was awarded in 2011. That year, he tallied 14 sacks on the season. He’s halfway to that mark with 11 games still left in the season.   Related Articles Baltimore Ravens look to get first road win in Miami Baltimore Ravens acquire left tackle Eugene Monroe Baltimore Ravens: Joe Flacco’s disappointing day
