INTERVIEW – LARRY MICHAEL – Voice of the Redskins
- PREVIEW GAME: Redskins at Ravens – game tonight at 7:30 pm
- RG III to face Redskins for first time in final audition with Ravens. OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Robert Griffin III said there is no extra motivation for him with his final audition for the Baltimore Ravens coming against his former team. The Ravens will wrap up the preseason Thursday against the Washington Redskins at M&T Bank Stadium, where Griffin will have one last chance to make the case for Baltimore to keep him on the 53-man roster. It’s been nine years since the Ravens have carried three quarterbacks on their season-opening roster. This will mark the first time Griffin faces the Redskins since being released by Washington in 2016.
- Baltimore Ravens vs. Washington Redskins odds: Ravens are 16-point favorites. Though it’s Week 4 for the preseason — a contest that usually features a bunch of players destined to be cut and on the streets just days later — bettors will do what they do best and gamble on these seemingly arbitrary games.Having won all four of their preseason games so far this year, the Baltimore Ravens are the clear favorites for their Thursday game against the Washington Redskins. As of Wednesday night, Odds Shark has the Ravens listed as 16-point favorites over the Redskins. Washington heads into their final game of the preseason on the heels of a 29-17 loss at the hands of the Denver Broncos last week. Meanwhile, Baltimore is trying to keep the momentum going after a strong 27-10 away victory over the Miami Dolphins last week. In addition to their current four-game win streak, the Ravens have won their last 12 preseason games spanning back to September 2015.
- Mayor tells Redskins to ‘bring it home’ for new stadium. (Washington Times) Mayor Muriel Bowser made her case on Wednesday for the Washington Redskins to come back to the District when it’s time to build the team’s next stadium. In a five-minute address at the team’s annual “Welcome Home” luncheon that was long on emotion but short on detail, Bowser said the Redskins need to “bring it home.” The mayor dangled a financial carrot in front of the franchise’s executives, citing the city’s recent public-private development projects with the District’s other sports teams. The Redskins‘ lease for their current stadium, FedEx Field in Landover, expires in 2027. “There’s no exaggeration to what’s happening in the sports capital in 2018,” Bowser said before citing the recent success of teams like the Washington Capitals and the Mystics. “But we think there is something missing.” Bowser said the city was not shy about partnering with its teams and remained focused on investing “in the future of sport.”
