The plot within the AFC North divisional race continues to thicken as the Baltimore Ravens were dealt a blow when Haloti Ngata was suspended by the league on Thursday for four games due to violating the NFL PED policy.

The loss of Ngata hurts a Ravens' defense which is known for it's run-stopping ability. The Ravens rank fourth in the NFL in rush defense, allowing only 86.3 yards a game. The loss of Ngata will certainly make an impact on the team, and potentially in the AFC North.

The Ravens currently find themselves locked in a 3-way tie for second place, although tie-breakers have them above the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns.

The Ravens are preparing to travel to Florida this Sunday to play the Miami Dolphins in another big AFC game after losing to the San Diego Chargers in dramatic fashion in Week 13.

If the Ravens are able to make the post-season, Ngata would be able to rejoin the team at that time.
