Rice's wild catch-and-run that helped the Ravens convert on a fourth-and-29 late in the fourth quarter against the Chargers and was picked as the NFL's top play of the year.
He took a short pass from quarterback Joe Flacco and ran through the San Diego defense to just barely make a first down. Rice started near the right sideline and weaved his way to the other side of the field and kept Baltimore alive. That was the key play in a drive that led to a game-tying field goal.
The Ravens later won it in overtime, a crucial victory this season.
Smith won the league's "Never Say Never" Moment of the Year for his performance in the Week 3 win over New England in Baltimore.
Smith's brother had been killed in a motorcycle accident earlier that weekend and, even though the Ravens gave him permission to sit out the game, the second-year receiver came up big with six catches for 127 yards and two touchdowns. His emotional performance helped the Ravens edge New England, 31-30, in front of a national TV audience.
His effort got picked from five finalists by voters on NFL.com/gmc.
The Ravens now hope to fare just as well in Sunday's game.
