Terrell Suggs’ Interception Against Pittsburgh Steelers
Ben attempted to throw the ball to running back Ben Tate. While Terrell originally tried to intercept the pass with his hands, the ball slipped out, but he held onto it with his knees! That takes some major skill!
“I was going to make a play on the running back and the ball popped up. It was one of those plays that could potentially change the game, and I knew I had to catch it,” Terrell says in an interview with the Baltimore Sun.
Terrell’s intuition about catching the pass was spot on, because it was a play that changed the game. When the Ravens took over the ball, they scored and took a 30-15 lead.
The final score was 30-17 with Baltimore taking the victory in Pittsburgh. The Ravens will now move on to face the New England Patriots in the NFL Second Round Playoffs on Jan. 10.
Terrell’s unique interception without a doubt goes down as one of the NFL’s most epic and fascinating plays!
