Ravens linebacker and NFL Defensive Player of the Year candidate Terrell Suggs has 6 1/2 sacks against the Cincinnati Bengals, his third most against any NFL team. But only one of them has come against the man who will line up opposite Suggs on Sunday. Few offensive linemen have given Suggs as many issues as Andrew Whitworth, the Bengals' mammoth left tackle who doesn't get the accolades but continually shuts down the opposing team's top pass rushers. Since Whitworth was moved from guard to tackle for the 2009 season, Suggs has just one sack in five games against the Bengals, and has been held without a sack for three consecutive meetings.

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs continues to dominate the AFC's top defensive honor.

He has also won the award in two of the past three weeks. Suggs now has a career-high 13 sacks to go along with six forced fumbles and two interceptions. He's considered one of the frontrunners for the AFC Defensive Player of the Year award.

It's been difficult to come up with new and interesting ways to describe the effect Terrell Suggs is having on opposing teams this year, but John Harbaugh might have managed to boil the praise of Suggs down to succinct perfection on Sunday. "Terrell Suggs was just a game-wrecker," Harbaugh said, trying to sum up how the Ravens linebacker played in the team's 24-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts. "He was a game-wrecker in the run. He was a game-wrecker in the pass rush. " The Colts were inclined to agree, especially after Suggs ruined their day by sacking quarterback Dan Orlovsky three times, forcing three fumbles.

When the Ravens drafted Jarret Johnson in the fourth round in 2003, there were some questions about his longevity in the NFL. After all, he was considered too small to play the defensive tackle position he played at the University of Alabama and too big to play linebacker. On Sunday, Johnson, who lost 25 pounds to become an outside linebacker, overtook former defensive end Michael McCrary and former linebacker Jamie Sharper as the franchise's all-time leader in consecutive starts with his 74th straight start in the team's 31-24 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

There were a few veterans who stood up and spoke, but after getting booed off the field at halftime, the Ravens' players mostly sat in silence as the shock washed over them. For the Ravens, there was really no alternative, not after trailing a one-win team by three scores on their home field, not after their offense played in the same woeful manner for the first 30 minutes that it did six days earlier in Jacksonville, Fla., and not after hearing it from their fans who rightfully expected better.

Jarret Johnson still grimaces when he thinks about it. For as long as he could remember, he'd been a strong guy. Some of it was country strength, the kind of muscles you build when you grow up in in a small Florida town on the Gulf of Mexico, raised by a family of commercial crabbers and fisherman. But he could always hold his own in the weight room, too, moving metal plates with relative ease as he out-worked much bigger guys on his way to an NFL career. But at the start of the 2010 season, for the first time in Johnson's life, he would ask his body to do power through workouts, and it would simply refuse.
