Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice ran for 52 yards on his first carry of today’s game against the Detroit Lions. It was his longest run of the season — until he topped it in the second quarter.
Rice scored on a 59-yard touchdown run to give the Ravens a 17-3 lead late in the first half, and he already has an incredible 133 yards on the day — on only six carries.
Presumably, the Ravens will protect the lead by running the ball in the second half, and Rice will get a chance to get a lot more than six more carries and add a lot more yards to his current total.
The 133 yards he has so far make today his most productive game of the season. Rice’s career high of 154 yards is easily within reach. And maybe he’ll end up with a lot more than that.
