Ravens’ Suggs Questions Goodell, Blackout

Ravens_Terrell_Suggs_10Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs accuses NFL commissioner Roger Goodell of having a role in the Super Bowl blackout during an interview on ESPN’s “E:60” that will air Tuesday.

“I was like Vegas, parlor tricks, you know what I mean?” Suggs said. “I was like, ahh, Roger Goodell, he never stops, he always has something up his sleeve. He just couldn’t let us have this one in a landslide, huh?”

The lights went out early in the third quarter of February’s Super Bowl between the Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, shortly after Jacoby Jones’ 108-yard kickoff return gave Baltimore a 28-6 lead. The unprecedented Super Bowl moment delayed the game for 34 minutes. San Francisco then scored 17 unanswered points once the game resumed, and the Ravens needed a late fourth-quarter stand in the red zone to prevail.

ESPN NFL commentator Ray Lewis brought up a conspiracy theory recently, but Suggs pointed the finger directly at Goodell.
