The tension between the Miami Dolphins' defense and the Baltimore Ravens' offense boiled over once again on Thursday night in the Ravens' 40-0 win.

Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh shoved Ravens quarterback Ryan Mallett by the throat in the fourth quarter, drawing a personal foul on the play.

Suh shoved Mallett as the play was whistled dead. Mallett then got facemask-to-facemask with Suh, and the defensive tackle grabbed the quarterback by the throat and shoved him backward.

"He came right at me, and he tried to tackle me," Suh said of the incident with Mallett after the game. "I just defended myself."

Tight end Ben Watson was one of several Ravens players unhappy with Suh.
