Detroit Lions starting defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is an absolute terror in the interior line to say the least ever since being selected second overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. Since coming out three years ago, Suh has had 22 sacks and was an All-Pro his rookie year. All the good play he has done has been marred slightly with the extra curricular actives such as stomping Evan Dietrich-Smith‘s head on Thanksgiving Day. The stomping resulted in an obvious 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct and an automatic ejection. Additionally, Suh was suspended for two games without pay.
Suh and the Lions have to be riding high after beating the New England Patriots mercilessly 40-9 and forced four turnovers in the first half last week. While he plays at a high level seemingly all the time, veteran center Eric Wood should be able to hold his own against Suh as he is a tenacious blocker against the run and pass. Suh is a freak athlete, plain and simple. In college, for the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers, he was keeping opposing team’s offenses in check by himself.
What happens with Ndamukong Suh and the Buffalo Bills meet on Thursday night? That’s anyone’s guess. But if he and the first team starters play more than a series, it’ll be shocking but yet it would be a great battle between two great interior lineman on either side of the ball.
