Victory parades, as we discussed yesterday, are events when players can do pretty much whatever they want – for example, sing or dance badly. Still, some caution must be exercised… as Ray Rice can now attest.
With 1:59 to go in the 4th quarter and down 3, the Ravens faced a 4th and 29 at midfield. And as Joe Flacco bounced in the pocket, finally dumping it off the Ray Rice at the line of scrimmage, all hope seemed lost. But then something interesting happened: Rice ran past pretty much the entire Chargers defense for a game-saving first down in one of the more remarkable plays of the year. (He also got quite a helpful spot from the refs.) The game would go into overtime, the Ravens would win 16-13, and Chargers fans would be left STMFH.
From Houston’s 43-13 shellacking of Baltimore. The athletically freakish defensive lineman — check out his combine stats — got into it a bit with everyone’s favorite undersized running back, Ray Rice.
