OWINGS MILLS - His final numbers weren't anything special, but Ravens running back Ray Rice may have looked as much like his old self against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday as he has at any point this season.
"It was pretty hard to get going footing-wise in the first half for either team as far as blocking and all those kinds of things [with the snow]," Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. "[But] Ray was running hard north and south."
Rice had just 18 yards on eight carries during the first half, but he ran for 49 yards on nine carries during the second half, averaging more than five yards per carry.
He also contributed in the passing game, picking up 42 yards on five catches.
Yes, it came against one of the lowest-ranked defenses in the NFL, but it still represented progress for Rice, who went into Sunday averaging just 2.9 yards per carry and just five yards per catch.
INJURY REPORT: Ravens outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil didn't play Sunday because of the sprained ankle he suffered against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thanksgiving, but Harbaugh said Monday that Dumervil looked good Monday and has a chance to play against the Detroit Lions next week.
"It's kind of a bruise in the ankle, so we'll just have to see where he's at," Harbaugh said. "I was hopeful for him this week, so I'll be more hopeful for him next week."
The outlook wasn't as positive regarding Brandon Stokley.
Stokley suffered a concussion against the Vikings Sunday, which Harbaugh said could be problematic since Stokley has had a number of concussions during his career.
WIN PROBABILITY: There were six lead changes during the fourth quarter of the Ravens' win over the Vikings Sunday, including five during the final two minutes, five seconds.
Harbaugh said one of Baltimore's statistical analysts conducted a study looking at what the win probability was for each team following each of the first four touchdowns.
"It was like 90 percent towards 100 percent after each score for the team that just scored," Harbaugh said. "The chances of that happening are astronomical."
But Baltimore managed to score last and improve to 7-6 with three games left in the regular season.
PLAYING IN THE SNOW: After the game Sunday, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson said on Twitter that Ravens fans were throwing snowballs at Minnesota's bench area during Sunday's game, and he called Baltimore's fan base the worst in football.
Harbaugh, though, downplayed the significance of Ravens fans throwing snowballs when asked about Peterson's comments Monday.
"Who doesn't throw snowballs when it snows?," Harbaugh said. "Maybe Minnesota because they're so used to snow. Maybe that has gotten old for them. I don't know."
STILL IN THE MIX: Tight end Dallas Clark was a healthy scratch for the Ravens Sunday against the Vikings, but Harbaugh said that Clark will still have a role even with tight end Dennis Pitta back from the hip injury that prevented him from playing in the first 12 games.
Clark had 31 catches for 343 yards and three touchdowns while Pitta was out.
"Dallas is going to be a big part of what we're doing going forward," Harbaugh said. "It just depends on the game plan and how the offensive coaches decide to put it together."
