Gresh & Zo Whiteboard: Stopping Ray Rice
BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots are just one win away from another Super Bowl appearance, but they have the Baltimore Ravens standing in their way.
Known more for their dominant defense, the Ravens also have a game-changer on offense in Ray Rice. Patriots fans know plenty about Rice after his 83-yard touchdown run to start the Ravens 33-14 playoff defeat two years ago.
98.5 The Sports Hub’s Andy Gresh takes to the whiteboard this week to chart out one of the Ravens favorite plays for Rice, the screen play.
Gresh & Zo Whiteboard:
The elusive back, who Gresh describes as “Danny Woodhead, except with muscles and talent,” can catch the short pass in the backfield and then explode for a big gain. How can the Patriots stop this?
Which Patriot defender will have to focus in on Rice on these screen plays?
How does Rice’s size, along with that of the Ravens offensive line, come into play?
Gresh breaks it all down in this week’s special AFC Championship edition of the Gresh & Zo Whiteboard!
