On the legs of running back Ray Rice, the Ravens took a 17-3 lead over the Detroit Lions just before halftime.

Rice took a handoff up the middle of the offensive line, bounced off two defenders and took off for the end zone for a 59-yard touchdown run.

The run, coupled with a 52-yarder earlier in the game, gave him 133 total rushing yards, the biggest day for a Ravens this year.   Rice did it on six carries, giving him an average of 22.2 yards per attempt midway through the second period.

Credit also deserves to go to wideout Derrick Mason, who made a key block downfield to take out a pursiung Lion en route to the end zone.
