OWINGS MILLS, Md. — When Ray Rice looks back on the 2011 season, he will readily acknowledge that he’s never had a better year.
Rice was the NFL’s second-leading rusher and the only player in the league to amass more than 2,000 total yards. He set a Baltimore Ravens franchise record with 15 touchdowns and earned a second straight Pro Bowl berth.
Rice isn’t done yet. His goal is to play in the Super Bowl for the first time, and that will remain his focus for as long as the Ravens remain in the playoffs.
Around the league
• CHARGERS: San Diego fired defensive coordinator Greg Manusky after just one year on the job and replaced him by promoting linebackers coach John Pagano. The shakeout came four days after the Chargers finished 8-8 and out of the playoffs for the second straight year.
• RAMS: Jeff Fisher interviewed for the St. Louis coaching job after meeting with Miami. Unlike Steve Spagnuolo, who was fired Monday after going 10-38 over three seasons, Fisher offers plenty of coaching experience. He has a career record of 142-120 and led Tennessee to at least 12 wins four times.
• JETS: New York linebacker Bart Scott was fined $10,000 for an obscene gesture he made toward a photographer in the team’s locker room Monday.
