Ray Rice (2.7) and Bernard Pierce (2.7) have the 2nd and 3rd worst yards per rush averages among qualified NFL RBs this season.
— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) November 5, 2013
Rice is on pace for 518 yards this season. He’s rushed for 259 on 97 attempts in 2013.
Pierce is on pace for 460 yards. He’s totaled 230 over 85 carries this season.
So what’s the problem? Bad offensive line? Injured running backs? A declining skill set?
Perhaps it’s the perfect storm in Baltimore.
