Bernard Pierce rushed nine times for 52 yards as the Ravens advanced to Super Bowl XLVII, adding one catch for eight yards.

Pierce actually out-gained Ray Rice on the ground, as Baltimore's No. 1 back managed only 48 yards on 19 carries. Despite playing through a knee injury, Pierce again had little trouble getting around the edge, extending runs with his vision and quickness. An increasingly large part of the Ravens' game-plan, Pierce will be one of the X factors in the "Harbowl."
