Baltimore Ravens veteran linebacker Terrell Suggs knows a thing or two about the stretch run of an NFL season.

Suggs knows that if a team doesn’t fix it’s issues by the time the stretch run starts rolling, then that team may find their season ending earlier then they would have wanted it to.

After Sunday’s loss to the Tennessee Titans, Suggs is stressing the urgency and importance of fixing the Ravens’ issues before time runs out on their regular season.

“You want to give your offense a chance to win the game or tie the game, and we did the one thing you can’t do — give up points,” Terrell Suggs said.

“It’s like we played pretty solid up until that drive. I don’t know what happened, it’s just very unfortunate.”

“We expect to play lights out every week. We got a bye week, then seven left. We better get the [stuff] fixed or we’re going to be on the outside looking in again.”

Baltimore now sits at 4-5 but Suggs isn’t the only Ravens defender who realizes that there is a lot of work for the unit to do if they want to keep their season alive.

“They made the right plays at the right time, and we messed up at the wrong time,” Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley said, per the team’s official website.

“We played good defense, but if we would have gotten that stop, it would have been great defense. Sometimes that’s the difference in games.”
