Ravens | Ray Rice not having a career year

Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice is on pace to finish with his fewest rushing and receiving yards since his rookie season. Barring a dramatic workload increase over the final two games, Rice will have his fewest carries since 2009, his first year as a starter. Rice, however, feels his lack of involvement is tied to the overall struggles of the offense. "If we execute at a high level, we execute on third down, there's no doubt in my mind that I'm coming out of the game with 18 to 25 touches," Rice said when asked about how he is used and his number of carries. "When you're getting three-and-outs, three-and-outs, three-and-outs, and then the other team is scoring, there's no time to hand the ball off to Ray Rice. That's just being honest about your touches. My touches are going to come when we execute at a high level … I'm just trying to stay effective. Obviously, I know my role on the offense hasn't changed."
