Ray Rice did not practice at all this week after leaving last weekend's win with a hip injury. His status for Sunday is not looking good, but even if Rice plays, you have to figure that Bernard Pierce will receive the majority of the carries. Pierce has rushed for 79 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries this season, averaging a pedestrian 2.8 yards per carry. Rice hasn't fared much better, averaging 2.9. But even though the Ravens will be going up against one of the NFL's better run defenses, I expect Pierce to have a big game. He wants to prove he is capable of starting and starring in this league. This would be his biggest opportunity to date.
