Washington falls to Ravens 37-3
The Washington Football Team benched its starters and key reserves and fell to the Baltimore Ravens in their preseason finale, 37-3.
Quarterback Kyle Allen got the start instead of Ryan Fitzpatrick and connected on his first two passes for gains of 18 and 7 yards. His next two passes fell incomplete and Washington was forced to punt. Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson got the start and drove his team down the field, milking the clock. A win for Washington came when the defense sacked Jackson in the red zone and the kicker missed the field goal.
Unfortunately, Washington wouldn’t be able to capitalize on Baltimore’s mishap and punted on their next drive. Tyler Huntley came in for Jackson and lit up Washington's reserves by going 24 of 33 with four touchdown passes and a rushing score.
After catching a screen pass from Jackson, Ravens starting running back J.K. Dobbins went down awkwardly midway through the first quarter on his third touch of the game after being tackled by linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk. There is now concern about the seriousness of what might be a Dobbins knee injury.
"He'll get tested Sunday]" Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. "We'll see where we're at, at that point in time."
The Washington Football Team suffered its own significant injury as well, as training camp star cornerback Tory McTyer went down on the first play of Baltimore's second possession. He is being evaluated for a possible concussion.
The Washington Football Team will look for their first win of the season when they take on the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1 at 1pm ET.
