Brady expecting usual commentary from Suggs


Terrell Suggs loves to talk about Tom Brady.

So with Suggs' Baltimore Ravens set to host Brady's New England Patriots Sunday, the future Hall of Fame signal-caller expects more of the same from the loud linebacker in the coming days.

"I'm sure he’ll be happy to tell you how he feels about me this week," Brady told WEEI Monday, via "He's a great player. I was watching him last night. He's still the great player that he's been for a long time."

The Ravens played Monday night, so Brady was referring to watching Suggs on tape. Coming off a disappointing loss to the Miami Dolphins, Brady was apparently getting in some early study time on his upcoming opponent.

"[Suggs] always sets the tone for that defense," Brady said. "He and [Elvis] Dumervil can really rush."

New England, which last saw Baltimore in its AFC Championship loss last season, has struggled away from home this year, recording all four of its losses outside of Foxborough. The Patriots are currently in a battle for a first-round bye and home field advantage through the playoffs, two things made a little tougher to attain with the loss to Miami.

"It's going to be another tough game on the road," Brady said.
