This Beltway battle catches the teams going in opposite directions.
Baltimore was 3-0 heading into last week. Nobody thought they were elite though and they proved it losing at home as a favourite against Oakland.
Meanwhile the Redskins have won two in a row to get back into the race in the NFC East.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET with the Redskins looking to catch the Ravens reeling so they can grab their third win in a row.
One loss is nothing to be concerned about but back to back losses at home would be a bad indicator for Baltimore.
The Redskins are on solid footing after a shaky start to the season.
At 0-2 it was looking like a disaster but at 2-2 they are definitely in the NFC East race for the forseeable future. The month may have started with the Browns but things are getting tougher after that.
You can make the east case that QB play has been the reason for the change of fortune. Kirk Cousins was bad the first couple of weeks but the last two weeks he has posted ratings over 100.
Simultaneously TE Jordan Reed has seen his receptions increase, showing off the athleticism he did a year ago when he joined the elite tight ends in the league.
Even though they are riding a two game winning streak the Redskins have got to be better on defense. There is not a single category where they are even in the top half and the injuries are beginning to mount up.
DE Ryan Kerrigan is a key to their pass rush. He creates enough havoc for guys like Trent Murphy – 4 sacks – to get to the quarterback.
The Ravens have opened the season playing four straight close games, winning three. When they were undefeated not many believed in them and now that they are 3-1 the question is just how far they might drop.
On offense Joe Flacco has still yet to play to th ebig contract he earned after taking the Ravens to the promised land. This year his numbers are pedestrian and the talent around him isn’t all that great.
Odds are guys like Steve Smith Jr. and Mike Wallace are going to fade as the season progresses. The running game featuring Terrance West scares nobody.
On defense the Ravens have great numbers, they are first in yards allowed and 7th in points. It is a real surprise because they don’t have a ton of elite talent. Terrelle Suggs is back and he looks just as good as before his injury last season.
They are leaning heavily on some untested players like LB Zachary Orr and have also gotten a bit lucky with their scheduling.
Only Oakland, who beat them last week has an above functional offense. The defense is going to have to lead the way for them to continue sustained success.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Washington +3.5
When you can get the hook it always grabs your attention but in this case I think Washington is in a great spot for an outright upset on the road.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Washington 27 – Baltimore 17
I like the way that Washington has got their offense going the last few weeks. I think they can with the matchup with the Ravens defense and take the game. Baltimore is unimpressive.
