Ray Rice is looking forward to the Baltimore Ravens' next game, mostly because it will enable him to forget the last one.
Rice ran eight times for 28 yards Monday night in a 12-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was his fewest yards and carries since Oct. 3, 2010, when he gained 20 yards against Pittsburgh.
After practice Wednesday, Rice spoke excitedly about getting back on the field. He treated it as the first big step to putting the Jacksonville game behind him.
He said: ''Today was a great day because you know what? Last week is done.''
Rice says he's not going to beg for carries. He says the reason he didn't run more often Monday is because the offense wasn't moving the ball and getting first downs.

Last week, the Baltimore Ravens dropped out of first place with a 12-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Offensively the Ravens had one of the worst performances in team history only having 146 total...
Ravens running back Ray Rice was a no show during Baltimore's loss to the Jaguars in Week 7, and Rice expects that problem will be rectified this Sunday against the Cardinals.
A few of you chided me last week for writing a post about how the Ravens usually win when Ray Rice has 20 or more touches in a game. I should have just typed in “Captain Obvious” in as the byline, shouldn’t I have?
Monday night was a disaster and it will be nice to move on for the Baltimore Ravens. Baltimore is 3-0 and blowing teams away at M&T Bank Stadium. So far, in Baltimore, the Ravens have beaten opponents by 28, 17 and 15. Don't expect any of that to change Sunday afternoon.
Joe Flacco and the offense is coming off one of the worst performances in franchise history. I would...
1. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota at Carolina
2. Fred Jackson, Buffalo vs Washington
3. Arian Foster, Houston vs Jacksonville
4. Ahmad Bradshaw, New York Giants vs Miami
5. Ray Rice, Baltimore vs Arizona
6. Maurice Jones-Drew, Jacksonville at Houston
7. Pierre Thomas, New Orleans at St. Louis
8. Frank Gore, San Francisco vs Cleveland
9. Chris Johnson, Tennessee vs Indianapolis
The Ravens return home after taking one on the chin from the Jaguars in Jacksonville last Monday Night. The Ravens are 3-0 at home this year where they have outscored their opponents 98-38! The Cardinals have lost five games in a row as their season is going right down the commode. Here is a look at the matchups in this game:

Every season, a few surprise studs come out of fantasy Siberia to reward savvy owners who had the foresight to select them in the later rounds of the draft. A season ago, Adrian Foster, Peyton Hillis and Brandon Lloyd come to mind. Ray Rice, Miles Austin and Sidney Rice were unlikely heroes in 2009. And so on and so forth.
