Can the Colts contain the Ravens' running game?

The Colts' defense has proven to be extremely vulnerable against the run, allowing running backs to run roughshod over them this season.

They're allowing 137.5 yards on the ground per game, ranking 29th in the NFL.

Plagued by several injuries and trying to stop offenses with an undersized front seven, the Colts gave up 352 rushing yards against the Kansas City Chiefs.

"They've got a lot of little, tough linebackers that like to get downhill," Ravens Pro Bowl fullback Vonta Leach said. "I played the Colts for year. They've got a lot of short guys, but they're fast and get to the ball."

The Colts surrendered 2,200 rushing yards during the regular season, allowing an average of 5.1 yards per rush. This could be a major advantage for a Ravens running game that ranks 11th in the NFL and is averaging 118.8 yards per game on the ground.

Headlined by Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice, who rushed for 1,143 yards and nine touchdowns while rookie backup Bernard Pierce gained 532 yards, the Ravens are averaging 4.3 yards per rush with a total of 1,901 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Playing without defensive linemen Brandon McKinney, Josh Chapman and Drake Nevis, who are on injured reserve, and being without Antonio Johnson for the past two games, the Colts could be in trouble against Rice.
