    Anybody watched this game?
    I was switching between the Fla/Ten game and this one so I wasn't pay much attention.

    Suh recorded 8 tackles, a sack, and 4 passes defended.

    How'd that happened?

    That happened because Tyrod Taylor still isn't a very good QB yet.

    Suh batted down all four of those passes at the line of scrimmage by just playing smart football and getting in the passing lanes when he was double-teamed.

    Great game by the way.

    The ironic thing is that, had Suh stayed in chasing mode after Taylor on the final play, he might very well have batted that ball down the same.
    At the very least, I think Taylor would end up throwing the ball away.

    But he went after Taylor, wanting to end it all for good!
    (There was also another defender ready to come up for support, that guy could go after Taylor).
    Sometimes, trying to make a play doesn't pay, ah well!

    I saw the same thing on that last play. That one of the benefits of having a QB with good legs. Taylor definitely did a very good improvisation on the last play.
