Yet another win for the Ravens this preseason as the team leaving the field 5-0 for 2018 preseason. After six long weeks, the preseason finishes with a blowout victory for Baltimore.

MVP: Kaare Vedvik

The final preseason game featured the Ravens producing yet another NFL-caliber special teams weapon as Vedvik boomed a 56-yard field goal, pinned multiple punts within the 20-yard line and rocketed kickoffs past the endzone. There were far more flashy plays, but Vedvik is the man of the night.

Stock-up

Kai Nacua — A 23-yard interception returned for a touchdown, capped off with a giant celebration from the starters storming the field. No better way to improve your stock than to force a turnover and take it to the house.

Bronson Kaufusi — A high volume of tackles, including three sacks on the quarterback. Kaufusi needed a big game here and he answered the call.

Pat Ricard — He’s already a lock, but he didn’t rest on his laurels. Even being held, Pat stripped the football from a running back and recovered his own fumble. He’s a bad man, on both sides of the ball.

Vince Mayle — A good route moved him out of tackling range and into the endzone. He’s still on the outside of the roster, to me, but he’s done well tonight.

Mark Thompson — Some big runs and good moves could feature him on another roster or practice squad. He’s big and capable of playing in the NFL.

Lamar Jackson — Far more good throws than bad, mixed in with an easy rushing touchdown land the rookies’ first start as a success. Ravens fans are salivating for 2019/2020.

Josh Woodrum — Not a bad game for the expected practice squad quarterback. If not for the DeVier Posey drop-turned-interception, his stat-line would look far better.

Stock-down

Jermaine Eluemunor — Bad play by the offensive lineman, allowing a sack. He’s playing out of position, but he’s still not looking great.

DeVier Posey — A great pass by Woodrum bounced off the hands of DeVier and into the arms of a Washington cornerback.

Carl Davis — A rather quiet night for the defensive lineman where multiple others shined. He isn’t going anywhere, but it would have been better to see a near-starter make a greater impact tonight.

Chris Board — A high volume of tackles isn’t always impressive; Board produced the tackles but not the coverage. He also couldn’t shed his block from the screen pass that went for a touchdown.
