    Im not so sure about Ray Rice. Miamis run defense only allows 100yds pergame 11th in the NFL, they shut out the bengals run game allowing only 91yds between Scott and Benson. And Ray Rice hasent had the best season running the ball. Cam Cameron loves his new acquisitions especially Boldin so hes gona throw the ball all over Miami. But with the 55 degree weather at M+T bank stadium it might cause Cameron to impliment the run over the pass.

    @Christian Schwarz: Look what Miami did to Mendenhall. Rice = 55 yards, 1 td.

    @Christian Schwarz:

    Call it a hunch… I dont think many if any owners will put Rice on the bench i just feel he is primed to break out of this funk and show people why he was one of the elite backs last year.
