The Baltimore Ravens have had three players named to this year’s Pro Bowl: Linebacker Terrell Suggs, safety Eric Weddle, and linebacker C.J. Mosley. This is the fewest number of Baltimore Ravens sent to a Pro Bowl since the 2005 season when just offensive lineman Jonathan Ogden was selected.
It’s no surprise that the Ravens’ defense is so well-represented in this year’s Pro Bowl, especially given how good their defense has been this year. On the season so far, they’ve given up the ninth-fewest passing yards (3,005), the third-fewest passing touchdowns (14), and lead the league in interceptions (22).
All three of the Baltimore Ravens’ Pro Bowlers have been selected before. Kicker Justin Tucker was selected as a first alternate.

This is the seventh time Suggs has been selected to a Pro Bowl, and at age 35, he’s still going strong, having logged 43 tackles, 11 sacks, and four forced fumbles so far this season. If he gets three more sacks before the season is over, he’ll tie a career-best from 2011 when he was named Defensive MVP.
This is Weddle’s fifth Pro Bowl of his career, and in his two years as a member of the Baltimore Ravens, he has 10 interceptions, the most among safeties in the NFL over that time span. This year he is second in the league in interceptions with six, behind just Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay who has seven.
This is the third Pro Bowl for Mosley, who currently has the sixth-most tackles in the NFL with 121. He is also one of only two defenders in the NFL to have at least 115 tackles, two interceptions, and one sack, along with Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner.
“I’m speechless. Every time you make it, it’s like making it for the first time all over again. It’s a really great feeling,” said Suggs. “I want to thank all the fans who voted, and I thank my coaches and teammates, as they all have a high expectation for me. I also thank the organization for believing in a 15-year vet.”
