The final preseason game has concluded, and with it comes another Winners & Losers column. For a lot of guys, this could be the last time their name is brought up, at least as a Raven.

Bad day players:

  • Kapron Lewis-Moore - A penalty to start the match, and invisible on the line. It seems the patience by the Ravens did not pay off. Doesn’t help Michael Pierce made the play of the night.
  • James Hurst - After a decent start Hurst got beat bad by an outside stunt move from the interior lineman. Alex Lewis couldn’t recover the fault and down went Josh Johnson. Can’t be allowing sacks and making the final cut.
  • Michael Campanaro - Dropping the kickoff and fumbling in the same return isn’t something that keeps you on the team. He made a case for why he shouldn’t be kept rather than staying.

Winners:

  • Michael Pierce - Top of the leaderboard today, Michael Pierce blew up the interior line on multiple occasions, but his best move occured with the offense backed up deep. Swimming through a block Pierce strip-sacked the Saints QB in the endzone. Pierce put the cherry on top by recovering his own forced fumble for a defensive touchdown.
  • Terrence Brooks - With Matt Elam out and Kendrick Lewis not playing yet again the safety fought hard to show he’s the depth safety they need. Four solo tackles shows he’s confident to get the job done.
  • Matt Judon - He didn’t get the 4 in 4 that I’d hoped, but he did however bully the O-line yet again. He could be the steal we all hope for.
  • Victor Ochi - A strip sack and a fantastic tackle on a wide receiver jet sweep proves he is a clear talent. He won’t clear waivers.
  • Josh Johnson - The man was on a mission to dethrone the incumbent backup Ryan Mallett, and came away strong. With a statline of 18/24 for 181 yards and a 96.0 QBR he clearly is in contention. His mobility also helps, with 19 yards and a rushing touchdown.
