As first drives go, the Ravens couldn’t have done much better on Sunday at Chicago.

The Ravens put together an seven-play, 66-yard march to take a 7-0 first-quarter lead at Soldier Field, with Ray Rice’s one-yard TD run off the right side the scoring play.

Earlier in the drive, Rice broke free for a 47-yard run off the left side, which set up the Ravens at the Bears’ 10-yard-line.

Entering the game, Rice’s longest run of 2013 was just 14 yards.

Sunday’s Ravens-Bears game is being played as storms roll through Illinois toward Chicagoland. Wind has been the weather factor thus far at Soldier Field.
