Football has always been a fascinating blend of emotion, physical execution and tactics. Rice managed to combine all three in the second half. He gave his speech about just focusing on doing your job and letting the coaches do theirs. He got fired up when one of the Texans players grabbed his face mask, twisted his neck, and wasn't flagged. ("I was hot," Rice said. "I let it go, but I was definitely hot.") And he went to running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery at one point during the third quarter (right after a 5-yard loss) and said the Ravens needed to switch from their outside zone running attack to an inside zone. The Texans linebackers were flowing to the ball too quickly, Rice felt, and they'd be vulnerable to inside traps and backdoor cuts. He and Montgomery went to Cameron, and Cameron trusted their eyes and immediately made the switch. Suddenly, the Ravens run game started clicking, which opened up play-action fakes again. Rice finished with 101 yards, including a 27-yard burst that helped put the game away.
