Can Ravens take advantage of weak Bears' run defense?
EARLY BIRD: Waking up with the Ravens, who will be trying to win two straight games for the first time since September.
Two-minute topic: Why does Terrell Suggs enjoy playing the villain on the road?
OWINGS MILLS – Suggs is a movie buff, and when the Ravens play on the road, he takes the role of being a villain to heart.
“Some people don’t enjoy being a villain and it kind of affects their play,” Suggs said. “So I had to learn at a young age that the (opposing) team and their fans aren’t going to like you, they’re not going to cheer you, and they’re going to say the most personal things about you. You can either let it bother you, or you can embrace it and use it.”
Suggs has not played at Soldier Field in Chicago since 2005, and was looking forward to the trip. Being booed was something he would embrace. A few sacks and a victory would make the trip even better.
Morning thought: “We’ve got seven games left, and I’ve still got all the confidence in the world in Ray Rice. He’s one of the best players in this league, one of the best running backs in this league, and we have a lot of success with games when 2-7 (Rice) has got his hands on the ball. So, as long as we stick with that, I think we’ll be fine.” – Suggs in support of Rice.
