Through six weeks the AFC is really anybody's race, but one of the front-runners took a big hit on Sunday.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced on Monday that both linebacker Ray Lewis and cornerback Lardarius Webb will miss the rest of the season with injuries.

Lewis is out with a torn triceps muscle. Webb has a torn ACL.

The Ravens improved to 5-1 after beating the Cowboys on Sunday. The only other teams with winning records in the AFC are the Texans (5-1) and the Chargers (3-2), who play tonight against the Denver.

Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was also hurt on Sunday. He tore his MCL but is expected to play Sunday against the Texans, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Lewis is 37 years old. Now that his season is over, talks of his retirement have begun to swirl, but the 14-year veteran has not yet commented on his future plans.
