"As wide-outs, we're taught that as soon as you get the ball in your hands, turn up the field," Mason said. "Typically, when you turn up the field, good things happen. When you start dancing, nothing good happens."
Taking an inside handoff from Flacco in the shotgun, Rice raced through the hole and faked out former Maryland linebacker D'Qwell Jackson to break a 60-yard run.
"As a running back, you always want to see one-on-one," Rice said. "Your eyes get big when you see that hole really big. You know how fast it can close at this level."
Rice, though, knows his day could have been better.
He was stopped 3 yards short of the end zone on the 60-yard run, and he was held 2 yards shy on an 18-yard catch earlier in the game.
"One thing is I have to start finishing," Rice said. "I'm going to start putting some points up."
But this win will be remembered by how the offense did finish in delivering its largest comeback of the season (17 points in 10 1/2 minutes).
"I think we did a great job of getting what we wanted," Flacco said. "We felt like they wanted to put pressure on us and we converted on those chances - enough for the win."
