Ravens Backfield Ranked Among NFL's Best

USA TODAY Sports

This, according to Marc Sessler, Around the League Writer on NFL.com.

The Baltimore Ravens backfield is considered the third-best in the NFL, according to the story, Ranking The NFL's Deepest Backfields. The combination of Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce rate behind the San Francisco 49er's and Seattle Seahawks in the aforementioned link above.

The Ravens are ahead of the Houston Texans (4th), Philadelphia Eagles (5th), New Orleans Saints (6th) and New England Patriots (7th) .

Here is what is said about the Baltimore rushing attack:

3. Baltimore Ravens (Ray Rice, Bernard Pierce, Anthony Allen, Bobby Rainey, Damien Berry)

Like Gore and Lynch, Rice is another workhorse back who has carried the load for years. We tabbed Pierce to make the leap this season and move into more of a split-duty role with Rice. Pierce's workload increased as last season wore on, and the Ravens leaned hard on his downhill, tackle-shedding style in the playoffs. Rice is still the main dish, but Pierce makes this ground game a versatile beast.
