Ray Rice Scores 1st TD Of Career

Michael Zambito@@zmapmanContributor ISeptember 26, 2009

OK so Ray Rice hasn't scored a touchdown this season, or last season.  Looks like the TD could come this Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.  So far this season Rice has rushed for 144 on 27 carries for a 5.3 average.  Throw in his receptions, 7 for 58 yards and a 8.3 average and you have 202 yards from scrimmage for the young RB.

Last year Rice played in 13 games and started 4 of those.  His stats in those games, 107 attempts, 454 yards and a very good 4.2 average.  Receptions, 33, 272 yards for a 8.3 average. Rice also had 7 kick return for 161 yards and a 23 average. 

The combined total yards from '09-08, 1090 yards.  All those touches and only one fumble lost.  Not too shabby in his young promising career.

Coach Cameron and Coach Harbaugh if you should happen to read this, it is time to reward Rice with a touchdown this week against the Cleveland Browns.  Should be easy this week as the Browns give up 205 rushing yards per game.  Wouldn't it be nice to see Rice break Jamal Lewis' team record of 295 rushing yards in a single game?  Probably won't happen with the three headed monster of Rice, McClain, and McGahee.  Maybe all three could combine to break the record?

Just for the reader's information, when Jamal broke the record 6 years ago against Cleveland I was in Iraq.  Well guess where I am writing this from.....just saying.
