The reserves couldn't come back and the Ravens lost to the Redskins

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The Ravens starters have bounced back from their performance against the Eagles, but the backups have not been able to follow suit.

The defense could not stop the Redskins offense, as Washington would score 17 more points in the second half. Colt McCoy was able to avoid the second string pass rush and the reserve defensive backs were unable to stop the Redskins passing attack.

The Ravens weren't any better on offense, as Matt Schaub and Bryn Renner both threw interceptions and offensive tackles Marcel Jones and Jah Reid possibly played their way off of the Ravens roster after tonight's performance. Javorius Allen remained in the game, despite fumbling the ball at the end of the first half. He was not impressive, as he finished with 24 yards on 12 carries. Terrence McGee was a bright spot on offense, as he was able to gain yards when his number was called. He might just end up as the Ravens third runningback with Taliaferro out. McGee also served as a kick returner.

Asa Jackson didn't have a good follow-up to his kick return, as he fumbled a punt that he should've have fair caught and the Redskins recovered it in Ravens territory. He also struggled in coverage, as usual. At best he will solely handle kickoffs this season, at worst he's played his last game as a Raven.

All in all, the starters performed well in what will be their last showing before Denver, and the Ravens won't have too much difficulty deciding who gets cut when the roster is trimmed down to 75.
