Ndamukong Suh is looking forward to the first Super Bowl appearance of his career. Simply getting to football’s biggest stage isn’t enough for the Rams’ defensive lineman, though.
For Los Angeles to have success against New England on Sunday, it’s going to require the defense to get pressure on Tom Brady. While that task is never easy, Suh believes the Rams are going to have plenty of opportunities to knock around the Patriots quarterback.
“I know everyone is excited to say that Tom [Brady] hasn’t been touched in so many games and whatnot,” Suh said, “I think we’ll have plenty of opportunities to get after him.”

Suh played extraordinarily well in the Rams’ win over the New Orleans Saints two weeks ago, posting four tackles and 1.5 sacks in the overtime victory. On the year, the defensive lineman has registered 67 stops and six sacks.
Sunday’s matchup is the Rams’ first Super Bowl appearance since Super Bowl XXXVI (2002), and is a rematch of that matchup against the Patriots. New England won the game 20-17, the first of Brady’s Super Bowl victories.
