The Baltimore Ravens were defeated in what was likely their biggest game of 2016 to date in heartbreaking fashion, losing to the New England Patriots last night to fall to 7-6 on the season.
Veteran outside linebacker Terrell Suggs is no stranger to bold post-game comments whenever this rivalry is renewed, and he had yet another message as the Ravens were heading into the locker room after Monday night’s game.

Suggs is of course referring to a potential playoff rematch between these two teams, and it is not hard to see why he feels this way.
Despite playing a maddeningly conservative game on offense, the Ravens managed to cover a seven point spread in Foxboro, proving yet again that they may be the only team in football that isn't fazed by the electric atmosphere of Gillette Stadium.
While they won't be getting a participation medal for their efforts, the Ravens have to feel comfortable in their ability to hang with the Pats once again should they return to Foxboro in January.
Before that happens, they first need to qualify for the playoffs, which will start with a home contest against the Eagles next Sunday in Baltimore.
