It’s going to take a lot more than a three-point regular season loss to silence the Ravens. The Patriots pulled out a www.bostonherald.com/blogs/sports/rap_sheet/index.php/2010/10/17/final-from-gillette-stadium-patriots-23-ravens-20/" target="_blank">23-20 overtime win today at Gillette Stadium, but moments after the game the Ravens were already eyeing a postseason rematch.
“(Tom Brady) sometimes found some spots, made some plays,” outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said. “But like I said, he just better hope he don’t see us again.”
Last October, the Patriots squeaked out a 27-21 win over the Ravens at Gillette Stadium. The teams met again in the first round of the playoffs, and the Ravens rolled to a 33-14 blowout.
The Ravens are expecting this season to follow a similar script.
“We already know that story,” Suggs said. “Do you really need me to answer that? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. We’re a dangerous playoff team so we look forward to the rematch.”
For some reason, it seemed to bother the Ravens that the Patriots were getting so much credit in a game after their bye week.
“I think they got like one or two plays that they drew up on the bye week that actually worked, like the (Brandon Tate) reverse and the little double wheel with (Aaron) Hernandez,” Suggs said. “But after that, when they had to line up and play football they didn’t have too many things go well for them. (Brady) made some plays and we tip our hat for him. Congratulations.”
Suggs, who had three tackles and a sack, gave Brady his props after the game, but wasn’t very cordial with the quarterback on the field. They got into a heated, face mask-to-face mask shouting match in the fourth quarter after Brady complained about a non-call on what he considered roughing the passer. Suggs offered his tongue in cheek recount of the conversation.
“He was trying to tell me how to bag a Hollywood actress,” Suggs said. “He said, ‘If you want to get a Hollywood actress, take my seminar on Saturday.’ …He was going over the Dow and the economy and politics. He doesn’t really talk football that much.”
