The Baltimore Ravens will be honoring a familiar foe when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday.
Former Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs is set to be recognized as Baltimore’s Legend of the Game for the regular season finale.
It is fitting that the Ravens are bringing back Suggs for what could be Roethlisberger’s final game of his 18-year career.
Suggs was a constant thorn in the side of Roethlisberger and Pittsburgh, recording 15 of his 139 career sacks against the Steelers, his second-most against any organization.
“This series is special because of the men that have played in it,” Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday. “Guys like Ben pitting his skills against Suggs. Guys like Hines [Ward} pitting his skills against Ed Reed. You could go on and on.”
A two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Suggs also totaled 895 combined tackles, 202 tackles-for-loss, 37 forced fumbles and seven interceptions.
Suggs won a pair of Super Bowls, one each with Baltimore and Kansas City, while also earning seven Pro Bowl selections and a First-Team All-Pro nod.
