Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis assured the media on Wednesday that Browns running back Peyton Hillis shouldn’t expect another 100 yard performance. “A blind cat will find a meal every once in a while,” Lewis said. “[As] our team’s leader, it won’t happen again,” he said.
Hillis kept the team’s first game interesting with 144 yards rushing and a touchdown. As MASNSports.com’s Dan Kolko points out, the Ravens had allowed just three 100-yard rushers in their last 57 contests prior to meeting Hillis and the Browns in week 3.
Lewis’ message to Hillis this week was clear. “We’re not coming in there to overlook them or nothing, and we definitely ain’t coming in there to give him over 100 yards again.”
Tony Lombardi of Ravens24x7.com tweeted that Hillis is likely wearing down as the year goes on. “It is natural to assume Hillis is wearing down. He never carried such a load at U of Arkansas either. Most carries in a season there: 65,” he wrote. Hillis has 252 attempts this season and has reached the end zone 11 times.
