The preseason is over and the Ravens have set a new NFL record for 20 consecutive preseason games without a loss. Their final preseason game ends with a 37-3 whooping on the Washington Football Team.
Unfortunately, the victory has been overcast by a much more serious threat: J.K. Dobbins injury. The starting running back exited the field during the first drive after being tackled by two Washington defenders. After being carried to the blue medical tent, Dobbins was carted off the field to the locker room and ruled out for the rest of tonight’s game.
The rest of the game saw the Ravens dominate on offense while the defense allowed only a field goal. It’s time to get to the game.
Player of the Game: QB Tyler Huntley
Utter dominance. Huntley at times looked to be scoring at-will. Constant deep shots and his mobility to both maneuver through a collapsing pocket or break loose resulted in him completing 24-of-33 passes for 285 yards and four passing touchdowns while adding another score on the ground. He looked unstoppable tonight and his wide receiver James Proche concurred after the game.

“He snapped,” Proche said. “Oh my gosh, Snoop (Huntley) went nuts. He went bananas. He lost his mind.”
WR Binjimen Victor — Five catches on five targets for 85 yards and a touchdown will get you noticed by the coaching staff. No time like the final preseason game to absolutely go off.
WR James Proche — After a rough couple of preseason games, Proche came through with four catches on four targets for 52 yards and a touchdown. He’s done it all of training camp and now had his moment in the preseason.
TE Mark Andrews — An easy pair of receptions from quarterback Lamar Jackson to show off their chemistry before the season begins.
RB Ty’Son Williams — With the Dobbins injury, Williams is increasingly likely to make the Ravens’ final 53-man roster. The Ravens didn’t play him after Dobbins’ injury, and it’s likely due to preserving him for the season. At one point, the Ravens were even playing rookie fullback Ben Mason as the lone running back.
TE Eric Tomlinson — Sprung loose for a wide-open touchdown catch, the first of Huntley’s four touchdown passes.
DB Nigel Warrior — Produced some tackles and solid in coverage. He needed to show out tonight and did so.
Really nice play by Nigel Warrior to stop a WR screen for minimal game. Warrior's tackling has been really good last two games.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) August 28, 2021
WR Deon Cain — A bad set of drops leaves him further on the outside than he’d have liked right now. Especially with Victor, Proche and rookie wide receiver Tylan Wallace all catching touchdown passes. He ends tonight with only one catch for five yards.
CB Chris Westry — He is likely to make the roster after the Ravens traded rookie cornerback Shaun Wade on Friday, but tonight he struggled. Was beat on back-to-back plays with one being on a third and seven and the other going for more than 20 yards. Fortunately, he isn’t expected to start right away if he were to make the roster, and will be given time to develop.
