This is a look at Suh's stats against the AFC East, every one of which the Lions played last season. They went 2-2, losing to the Pats and Bills.
1 fumble recovery, 1 offsides and 1 facemask.
13 tackles, 11 solo. Against the Dolphins - 4 tackles, 3 solo.
7 tackles were for loss, 3 against the Dolphins.
5 qb hits, 3 of them against the Dolphins.
Suh had 1 sack, yep... against the Dolphins.
It can be argued that the Pats, Bills and Jets had better offensive lines than the Dolphins, who had the NFL's 2nd-best rush yards per attempt offensive line. Yet, the Dolphins couldn't neutralize Suh.
I hadn't intended to go here, but it could also be looked at as Suh against Belichick, Ryan, Schwartz and Coyle.
Then, I checked out Suh against the NFL's 3 best offensive lines in rushing yards/att., negative pass plays allowed and third down conversions. In order, they were New Orleans, Green Bay and Dallas.
Suh faced the Packers twice:
9 tackles, 7 solo, 2 tackles for loss, 2 qb hits, 1 sack, 1 pass defensed, 1 offsides.
and New Orleans:
2 tackles, 1 solo, 1 qb hit, .5 sack, 1 pass defensed, 1 offsides.
Detroit split with the Packers and beat the Saints.
