Baltimore Ravens running back Ray displayed one of the best performances of his career against the defending Super Bowl champions on Sunday to keep his team in the hunt for the AFC North.
Rice finished with a career-high 233 yards from the line of scrimmage and found the end zone twice to help the Ravens defeat the Saints 30-24 on Sunday. The win helped Baltimore improve to 10-4 on the season to keep pace with the Pittsburgh Steelers—who lost to the New York Jets on Sunday—in the division.
Throughout the season, Rice has displayed some impressive performances for the Ravens, but there seemed to be room for more after the type of numbers he put up in 2009. Each week, it seemed like we were anxiously waiting to see if this would be the game Rice would break out and have a monster performance.
In a crucial game against the Saints, that’s exactly what Rice did after leading the Ravens in both rushing and receiving yards. He was unstoppable against one of the top defenses in the NFL and if Rice can play like this on a weekly basis—Baltimore could be dangerous once the postseason gets underway.
