Last Rice-related post for awhile

Posted by Doug on August 31, 2006

Reader Bill M compiled Rice's career stats by opponent. It seems he's missing two catches and a few dozen yards (I hope the errors weren't in his source), but I'm taking his word for it that the numbers shown here are close enough for posting. I think he just likes this list because it reveals his Buffalo Bills as arguably the team that had the most success in shutting down Rice. Here are the numbers:

Also, Vince asked me to re-do yesterday's post with yards per attempt instead of career passing yards. Here is that:
