Ravens defeat Commanders and finish the preseason


The Baltimore Ravens’ 17-15 victory over the Washington Commanders on Saturday night extended their NFL-record string of preseason wins to 23, albeit it might not matter once the counting games start in two weeks. To advance to this stage of the preseason, the Ravens previously defeated the Tennessee Titans and Arizona Cardinals. They had a definite edge after the preseason was over. The Green Bay Packers, who won 19 straight preseason games from 1959 through 1962, had previously held the league record for most consecutive preseason victories, which Baltimore surpassed in 2021. The Ravens last suffered a preseason loss in 2015, when their current starting quarterback, Lamar Jackson, was still a freshman at Louisville. Since then, a lot has changed in Baltimore, and the club hasn’t lost a preseason game since that time. Although this streak doesn’t signify much in the larger scheme of things, it’s still a remarkable accomplishment that Baltimore will have the chance to build upon next August.
