A look at a player who gave his team a significant boost in Week 5.
But Sunday against the Denver Broncos, Rice was back to his old form. Healthy and a focal point of Baltimore's talented offense, Rice rushed for 133 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-17 victory. Rice made the tough and explosive runs to lead Baltimore to its highest point total of the season.
With Rice leading the way, the Ravens also rushed for a season-best 233 yards.
"When we needed to run the ball, we ran it," Rice said after the win. "There was no second-guessing what we were going to do."
Sunday's win should be a lesson for the Ravens and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron: When Rice has it going, Baltimore's offense is at its most dangerous. Receivers Anquan Boldin, Derrick Mason and T.J. Houshmandzadeh are great weapons, but a healthy and productive Rice makes the game easier for everyone in Baltimore.
