Terrell Suggs previously told reporters he didn't want them to talk about getting his 100th sack. He wanted to treat it like a no-hitter.

Now the silence can be broken as Suggs recorded one of Baltimore's four sacks during Monday night's 34-27 win over the Saints. The sack gave Suggs 100.5 for his career.

Suggs has long been wreaking havoc on opposing quarterbacks. Monday night against Saints quarterback Drew Brees was no different. In addition to the sack, Suggs was routinely applying pressure. He brought some heat on Brees on the third-quarter play that led to safety Will Hill picking off a poorly-thrown pass for a touchdown.

The sack came with under four minutes to go in the third quarter.

In addition to Suggs' solid game, fellow outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil recorded two sacks of his own, extending his total to 12.5 this season. Rookie linebacker C.J. Mosley had the fourth sack.
