Ravens Need Ray Rice to Upset Broncos

Ravens Need Ray Rice to Upset Broncos
By Jessica Kleinschmidt on January 12, 2013

With all the craziness around Ray Lewis retiring people started to forget another Ray-Ray RiceThe Ravens running back has been putting in work this season with 1143 yards and nine touchdowns under his “Ray Diddle Diddle” belt.  Last week he did have two fumbles in which people keep grilling him for, however let’s not compare him to a Billy Cundiff screw up quite yet.  Baltimore is still in the playoffs.

With a tough matchup against Peyton Manning and the Broncos this weekend, the Ravens really need to utilize Rice in all of his glory.  He had a rough start to the year not helping fantasy owners too much, but he eventually made some pretty ridiculous plays including a phenomenal 4th and 29 run against the San Diego Chargers in Week 12.  Don’t act like you weren’t impressed.

Rice is averaging 58.8 yards and scored one rushing touchdown in his last six postseason plays.  Makes Ravens fans nervous I’m sure.  However you have to remember he still has 257 carries which means he still gets the ball.  Joe Flacco needs to use him and make sure he gives him the ball at the most opportune times.  Denver doesn’t allow a lot of defense yards per game so Rice himself needs to make sure he finds ways to the end zone if they are going to win this game.

Even though on the “Pigskin Pick’em” only Mike Golic picked the Ravens to win, you need to remember we have Ray Lewis this time around and Manning has a tendency to perform horribly in the cold.  In addition there’s this hoopla about him wearing a glove on his throwing hand.  I don’t know if it’s a Michael Jackson type of glove or what the deal is, but let’s hope Rice helps his team in an upset.  Besides, everyone loves an underdog story.
