Ray Rice is one of the best players in the game today. Whether it’s receiving or running, Ray Rice always piles up the yardage. But this week, the yardage total may be titled one way.
With only three 100 yard games this season, rushing yards have been tough to come by at times for Ray Rice. Although the play calling hasn’t exactly been in his favor as of recently, some defenses have focused solely on shutting him down which has resulted in some poor games as far as the stat sheet goes. However, this week could be different.
The Baltimore Ravens march into Cleveland in hopes of following up a big win with another victory, something they’ve had difficulty doing this season. The Ravens must have a gameplan geared towards the weak Cleveland run D. They rank 29th in the league and it seems to be a much better target than their number one ranked passing defense led by Joe Haden. Teams have gashed them and they average 138 yards to opposing backs this season. Considering that Ray Rice is a very above average back, you’d have to think that the Cleveland run defense will drop even further in those rankings after he’s through with them. However, this league is anything but normal and the strangest things are known to happen on Sunday.
