INTERVIEW — TREVOR MATICH – WMAL’s Redskins Analyst @TMatich
- Recap the Redskins – Ravens preseason game last night: Washington Redskins 20 – 30 Baltimore Ravens
- Redskins Fall To Ravens In Final Preseason Game. The Washington Redskins fell to the Baltimore Ravens 30-20 Thursday night at M&T Bank Stadium in the team’s final preseason game. The Redskins got the offense working on their second drive of the game. After finding success in the ground game with the addition of a couple penalties, quarterback Kevin Hogan rolled out and hit wide receiver Brian Quick for a four-yard touchdown, which, at the time, tied the game. The Redskins kickstarted their offense again late in the second quarter thanks to wide receiver Trey Quinn, who danced around a defender after grabbing a pass from Hogan and ran for a 33-yard gain. Not long after, Hogan made his best throw of the night, staying in the pocket to absorb a big hit and connecting with wide receiver Simmie Cobbs Jr. for a 38-yard completion. The Redskins weren’t able to finish the drive after missing a field goal before the half. The Redskins found the end zone again in the third quarter, this time on a quick six-yard pass to tight end J.P Holtz, who caught the ball just across the goal line. Running back De’Veon Smith finished the scoring with a 28-yard touchdown, taking a screen pass and darting in between defenders, capping off a productive second half for the second-year back.
- Ravens finish preseason undefeated with win over Redskins. BALTIMORE —Ravens rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson ran for a touchdown, backup Robert Griffin III spent the entire game on the sideline and Baltimore beat the Washington Redskins 30-20 Thursday night to complete its third consecutive unbeaten preseason. Jackson played the first half and led Baltimore (5-0) on three scoring drives. The 2016 Heisman Trophy winner and first-round draft pick is sure to make the team, but coach John Harbaugh has not yet revealed whether he will keep Griffin, who’s currently No. 2 on the depth chart behind starter Joe Flacco. Griffin, a five-year veteran, went 27 for 41 during the preseason and showed no rust after sitting out last year. Neither team used its starters on offense or defense, accepted standard procedure in a preseason finale. Kevin Hogan played the entire game at quarterback for the Redskins (1-3), going 22 for 38 for 272 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in his bid to unseat Colt McCoy as the backup to Alex Smith.
