Suggs named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

Fresh off his three-sack performance in a primetime win over the 49ers on Thanksgiving night, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

I've been told winning the award gets you extra credit at Ball So Hard University.

Suggs not only sacked 49ers quarterback Alex Smith three times Sunday night, he also forced a fumble.

The nine-year veteran has a team-high nine sacks on the season, and he's tied for the team lead in forced fumbles with three.

As a team, the Ravens have recorded 38 sacks this season, which is the most in the league. This comes after a 2010 season in which the Ravens had just 27 sacks all year, ranking them 27th in the NFL in that category.

Ravens linebackers are absolutely dominating the Defensive Player of the Week honors this season, as they've collectively now won the award four times.

Suggs himself has won POTW honors twice this year.
