OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Terrell Suggs knows Sunday's game against the Ravens isn't just another game. 

A Ravens linebacker for 16 seasons, Suggs will make his return to M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday when his Cardinals face the Ravens. 

"When the schedule came out, I was like, ‘I'm going to downplay it, it's just another game,'" Suggs said. "But we all know that'd be (expletive). It's kind of a unique situation, isn't it?"

Suggs was a former seven-time Pro Bowler, NFL Defensive Player of The Year, First Team All-Pro and Super Bowl Champion in Baltimore. 

The potential future Hall of Fame pass-rusher said it came down to the last hour, but his desire to play in Arizona played a big part in leaving the Ravens in the offseason. 

"That's always going to be a part of my life," Suggs said of Baltimore. "You spend 16 years there, I definitely miss my guys, my former teammates...everybody has to turn the page."

He said he isn't anticipating anything from the Ravens crowd or team, and doesn't know what to expect when it comes time to hit the field. 

Last week, Suggs had two sacks in the Cardinals tie last week against the Lions. But for the first time at M&T Bank Stadium in his career, he'll try and be a source of frustration for the Ravens and their fans. 

"I don't know what to expect walking back into M&T," Suggs said. "I'm going to do my best to enjoy it, the good, the bad and the ugly."
