It's no secret in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area that the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Redskins do not like each other too much especially when Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and Redskins head coach Jay Gruden had a heated argument in week 3 during the 2015 preseason game between the two teams in Baltimore.

Now fast forward several months, and the small dislike between the two teams has reached over to their Twitter accounts. The battle started when the Ravens Twitter account used a quote from Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome who mentioned that teams around the league struggle with the quarterback position and the account showed Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford.
The quote that was made during Joe Flacco's contract extension press conference as he will be the Ravens starting quarterback through the 2021 season.

Then, the Redskins saw the tweet and responded with this:

And then, the Ravens responded apologizing:
@Redskins Our bad. Ozzie didn't criticize. We should have used pictures of Joe.— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) March 3, 2016
And lastly, the Redskins responded with this:

Things have smoothed over a little bit. Not too much, but a little bit. But Redskins fans were making fun of Flacco and even making fun of the fact that the Ravens missed the playoffs last season with a 5-11 record while the Redskins made the playoffs last season with a 9-7 record.
Well, Redskins fans, let me leave you with this:
Redskins wins (including playoffs) since 1992: 162
Ravens wins (including playoffs) since 2000: 164
