How Rice Ranks

Ray Rice has been an offensive beast this year, and especially this week, putting up over 200 total yards in the FIRST HALF.  In this post, we’ll look into how he ranks in the NFL in several statistical categories.

As evidenced by these stats, Rice has been an offensive monster this season, undoubtedly the biggest weapon the Ravens have. That’s even while sharing time with two other backs and being targeted week in and week out by the opposing defense. He was a force at Rutgers, and that success and talent has carried over to the NFL.  He is a huge reason that the Ravens are in the playoff hunt.
