Rice on Pace for Record Setting 2013

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Barring injury, Ray Rice should break Jamal Lewis' franchise yardage record this season

Running back Ray Rice has already cemented himself as one of the best players in Ravens' history and arguably the best running back to wear the black and purple. This season, Rice has a chance to go into the record books as the greatest ballcarrier in team history.

Currently, Rice's 8,233 career yards from scrimmage are the 2nd most in the franchise's young history. He is 933 yards short of Jamal Lewis' record heading into 2013 and Rice has averaged 1,877 yards from scrimmage in each of his last four seasons in Baltimore. Rice may not get quite as many touches this season as he has in years past as 2nd-year back Bernard Pierce is expected to have a bigger role on offense in 2013, but it is still almost a sure thing that Rice will surpass that record this season as his average yards from scrimmage over the past four seasons is more than double the number of yards he needs for the record. Only in his sixth season, Rice not only has a chance to set this record, but increase his yardage total far beyond Lewis' current record before all is said and done.
