Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday that there are no plans to replace Ray Rice with backup Bernard Pierce, although he acknowledged the team will stick with the back who has the hotter hand in games. The Ravens team page on ESPN.com wants to know your thoughts. Should the Ravens start Rice or Pierce?

Rice is averaging 36.1 yards rushing, which ranks 38th in the NFL. His average of 2.5 yards per carry is worst among starting running backs.

Pierce has struggled as well, averaging 29 yards per game and 2.8 yards per carry. But he did lead the Ravens in rushing Sunday with 31 yards despite 10 fewer carries than Rice.

My suggestion is to go with Pierce because he looked like the more explosive runner Sunday. After recording your vote, send me your opinion on the running-back issue to the Ravens mailbag by clicking here. Your comments could be published in a post at the end of the week.
