DAVIE — It took Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh about one second to consider if he cares that New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount said he’s a dirty player.

“No,” Suh said Wednesday.

After the Dolphins’ loss to New England on Sunday, Blount said Suh is a dirty player and has always been a dirty player.

“There’s no room in the game for that,” Blount told WBZ-TV. “At some point in time, guys have to defend themselves when he’s doing the things that he does.”

Blount ripped off Suh’s helmet after an exhange in the fourth quarter.

“I heard it from a lot of different people, so it doesn’t really matter to me what (Blount) thinks,” Suh said. “I’m looking forward to the Steelers.”

Suh admitted that he will step us his typical intensity in the playoffs.

“I think everybody’s emotions and focus and detail is very key,” Suh said. “So without question, there is going to be a lot more excitement and a lot more energy from the fans and the players.”

Suh made an interesting point about how Miami limited Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell in the first meeting between this teams in October.

“He wanted to be a patient runner and we attacked that,” Suh said.

Suh said coverage of Antonio Brown and Ladarius Green will be key, but so too is pressuring quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

“We’ve got to, like I said, cover, but at the same time get after the quarterback in Ben,” Suh said. “He likes to hold the ball and make plays – extend the play and get out of trouble and make plays.”
