Among the rushing marks Ray Rice set Sunday in the Ravens’ 24-10 win against the Indianapolis Colts, Rice joined Jamal Lewis as the only tailbacks in franchise history to record three consecutive seasons of 1,000 rushing yards,
For Rice, who now has 1,029 yards this season, reaching that achievement is something that he will treasure.
“It means a lot to me,” Rice said. “Anytime I do something, I give my credit to the offensive line. But to do three straight [1,000-yard rushing seasons], it does say something, consistency-wise. I try to just stay the course. [Running backs coach] Wilbert [Montgomery] was talking about it’s a great accomplishment, but I know there’s a lot more football left, and I always do my reflecting on how the season played out a couple weeks after the season.”Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
