An almost unprecedented 19-game preseason win streak is on the line for the Ravens this weekend as they make the 42 minute drive to FedEx Field to face Washington. While some teams might get complacent in the preseason, if you’re Baltimore you have to go for this one.
Washington has played Ryan Fitzpatrick in each of their first two preseason games, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he sees more action Saturday night as he tries to master yet another offense. WFT won’t let up a lot of points here, but will they score any?
The run that Baltimore on in the preseason is really one of the more impressive in all of sports. Winning 19 straight preseason games shows that John Harbaugh doesn’t take any contest for granted, even when trying to evaluate players 45-50th and deeper on the depth chart.
Harbaugh hasn’t lost a preseason game since 2015, and he also had 4-0, 3-1, and 3-1 seasons in three of his first four years in the league. The guy likes to win games, and that’s a team that you can get behind as a preseason bettor.
It wouldn’t make a ton of sense for Lamar Jackson to see the field on Saturday night, as keeping the former MVP should be of utmost importance for Baltimore. Trace McSorley (back) is also out the rest of the preseason which means its Tyler Huntley’s show to run in the finale.
There’s actually an advantage to have one QB take all the snaps in a preseason game, as Huntley did last week going 24/34 for 187 yards. Knowing you get the whole game doesn’t make you take any unnecessary chances, and it also helps Huntley get in more of a rhythm especially later in the game.
Washington Football Team
What makes Washington a threat to end Baltimore’s impressive preseason run is the fact that they a) have a good defensive scheme and b) are going to keep the playbook open to work out their QB depth chart. Fitzpatrick gets the starting job in two weeks, but Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen are neck and neck for 2nd string.
Allen missed two weeks of practice and the preseason opener, but returned last week to go 2 of 4 for 23 yards. Allen started 4 games last season, but Taylor Heinicke has just as good of a chance at the #2 spot. Heinicke started Washington’s playoff game last year, showing grit in a 26/44 for a 306 yard performance in a one score loss to Tampa Bay.
The WFT defense has very high expectations this year, but they’ve also given up 100+ yards rushing in each of the first two preseason games. Huntley is a runner for Baltimore, and Ty’Son Williams, Gus Edwards, and Nate McCrary have had decent preseasons running the football.
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Football Team -5
How do you possibly go against Baltimore here as they may be one of the few teams in the 2021 preseason actually pumped up for a game as they try to push their exhibition win streak to 20. Aside from that though, Baltimore will (likely) be playing one QB which helps with rhythym and they should be able to run the ball on Washington.
