The Ravens running back has been named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week.
Rice recorded a career-best 233 yards from scrimmage (153 rushing, 80 receiving) and two touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) against New Orleans. His 233 yards from scrimmage marked the third-most in a game in franchise history, and his 153 rushing yards were a Week 15 high throughout the NFL.
This is Rice's first Player of the Week award in his three-year career.
Rice, who had 31 carries against the Saints on Sunday, was asked today if it feels good to get back to running-oriented attack that the Ravens have leaned on in the past.
"It feels good. For me, it felt like another day at the office," Rice said. "One thing (offensive coordinator) Cam Cameron did that game was he stuck to what was working. It got to a point in that game where we knew that we were going to run it, and that's no knock on the Saints. We knew that we were going to run the ball. We knew that the big play was going to come, and that situation just felt good to know that."
