ExtremeRavens: The Sanctuary

Rex Ryan says 'run it at us if you want.'


Recommended Posts

The Ravens went with a ground-and-pound approach on a windy day and a muddy field, and the offense finished with a season-best 174 rushing yards. The improved performance was a big step forward in a year where running the ball has been a challenge, and the Ravens now hope to build off that effort against the New York Jets.



But that won’t be an easy task against the NFL’s top-ranked run defense, and Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan even dared the Ravens to try to run the ball on his team.


“We’re No. 1 in the league versus the run – that’s no surprise,” Ryan said. “We’re No. 1 in the league in rushing average, too, so come in and run it at us if you want.”


New York’s run defense is led by an impressive front seven, headlined by defensive linemen Muhammad Wilkerson, Damon Harrison and Sheldon Richardson. They have dominated offensive lines all season and held opponents to just 73.2 rushing yards per game.
