OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - Ray Rice had a combined 318 carries and catches during the regular season, the lowest total since his rookie year in 2008.
Part of the reason is that the Baltimore Ravens relied heavily on quarterback Joe Flacco, who set a career high in yards passing. In addition, rookie Bernard Pierce logged 108 carries as Rice's backup.
Rice isn't complaining, because he's never felt better in the postseason and intends to shine Saturday in Denver.
Rice says, ``I'm fresh in the playoffs. I'm healthy. This is the best I've ever felt.''
He's also determined to make up for his uncharacteristic performance of a week ago, when he lost two fumbles in Baltimore's 24-9 win over Indianapolis.
Rice says, ``I will continue to try to make plays, but I'll be smarter.''
