FOXBORO, Mass. -- Heading into Sunday's AFC Championship against the Ravens, the Patriots' defense knows it will have its hands full with a 5-foot-8 dynamo of a running back. Ray Rice drives Baltimore's offense on the ground and, perhaps more importantly, through the air. Rice led the NFL with 2,068 yards from scrimmage during the regular season. He was second in the league in rushing (1,364 yards) and second among running backs with 76 receptions and 704 receiving yards. "I don't think, obviously, any one person can stop a player of his caliber," Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said. "It...

FOXBORO, Mass. -- The Patriots are a victory short of redemption against the Ravens, and they'd reserve a weeklong trip to Indianapolis, which is nice this time of year. With so much happening around Gillette Stadium, let's just get right to it with this week's Two-Minute Drill. 1. It's true, to an extent, when the Patriots say they're a different team this year...
Some of the best players in the NFL will be free agents next season, and there will be a slew of teams trying to persuade them to join up. While running backs like Ray Rice and Matt Forte are probably looking at a big payday and a long list of suitors should their current teams decide not to lock them up, that is not the case for all free agents.
Players like Peyton Hillis and...
Tom Brady and Bill Belichick surely will have what transpired January 10, 2010 on their minds when they welcome the Ravens to town for the AFC Championship game. From the onset, Gillette Stadium’s eerily silent crowd could only watch with their collective mouths open.
A week removed from Wes Welker’s knee blowout in the final regular season game in Houston, with questions abound...
Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork was on a national conference call today with writers from all over the country. One writer wanted to know how many times he and the Pats defense had watched Ray Rice’s 83-yard touchdown rush to open the 2009 Wild Card Playoff game en route to beating the Pats 33-14.
Wilfork’s immediate response: ”None.”
The big man then went on to explain...
FOXBORO - The New England Patriots know running back Ray Rice is the Baltimore Ravens' biggest offensive threat....
Joe Flacco and Ray Rice have been waiting three years to get back to this spot, and if the Baltimore Ravens hope to return to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2001, they'll need their dynamic duo to take their game up another level.
Ray Rice is listed at 5-foot-8. That, accordingly, makes me about 5-foot-10. But let’s be real. The Ravens RB is not 5-8, just like I’m not 5-10 (OK, maybe 5-9).
Either way, both of us are short. I mean, look at that picture to the left. Rice is with Ravens LB Ray Lewis, who is 6-foot-1. And check out how short Rice looks there. Like, really short.
Interestingly enough, that’s...
The Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots: two heavy-hitting teams with a variety of talent - but only one will make it to the big game on February 5th. These are two very different teams in terms of strengths and weaknesses. It's no secret that the Patriots lack a decent running game, while Baltimore has one of the best in the league courtesy of Ray Rice; or that the...
