PFT on NBC Sports Network: Ray Rice, Week 17 preview


We’ve reached the end of the last full week of 2012 and it is also the last week of the regular season, which means that we’ve got an overstuffed hour of Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network coming your way this afternoon.

There will be a ton of talk about this weekend’s games, but before we get to them Erik Kuselias will welcome Ravens running back Ray Rice for a chat about what lies ahead for the Ravens. They’re heading to the playoffs and will play a game at home next weekend so we’ll hear what Rice thinks the team needs to do to build on last week’s 33-14 losing streak snapping rout of the Giants to make a run in the postseason.

Hines Ward will also stop by to talk about the big NFC East-deciding matchup between the Cowboys and Redskins as well as the Packers-Vikings matchup that will go a long way toward determining whether the Vikings make the playoffs. Mike Florio and Peter King will be on hand to discuss all the other big storylines for Week 17 while also giving their picks for all of the most important matchups.

It all gets underway at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
