Yards: 41 (3.7 avg)
Final Score: 31-3
Notes: This one was not nearly as close as the first game in September. Though Rice did not score a touchdown of his own (in fact he did not score a single one in the 2008 season), his teammates did. Cincinnati was just trying to get to the off season by this time, and Baltimore was rolling to the playoffs (they would eventually lose in the first round to the Pittsburgh Steelers).

Touchdowns: 1 (receiving)
Final Score: 17-14 Cincinnati
Notes: Though Rice scored a touchdown in this game, it was not enough as the Cincinnati Bengals were the juggernauts of the AFC North this year. Close score after close score the Bengals marched to the playoffs.
Yards: 48 (4 avg)

Notes: Cincinnati needed a win to ensure their playoff birth but was unable to get it done. Despite this, they made the playoffs and lost in the first round.
Ray Rice has score seven touchdowns against the Bengals. He is a great player and was one of the few who solved the puzzle that was the Bengals defense last year. The signing keeps one of the best players in the AFC North here for a long time. Players like these prepare teams for playoff games also, so though it is rough playing him two times a year, it could help in the long run if Cincinnati lives up to their potential.
