In a thrilling preseason matchup, the Baltimore Ravens faced off against the Washington Commanders, led by quarterback Sam Howell. The Commanders managed to break the Ravens' impressive 24-game preseason winning streak, which had previously been the longest in history, surpassing even Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers.
The Ravens, known for their strong drafting and coaching, have been a consistent force in the preseason. However, they were upended by Howell's commanding performance. Howell exhibited poise and efficiency, completing 18 of his 25 attempts and securing two touchdowns to seal the victory.
A standout player for the Commanders was wide receiver Jahan Dotson, who shone bright throughout the game. Unfortunately, the Commanders suffered a setback as their star wide receiver Terry McLaurin departed with a toe injury after recording three catches for 39 yards. Dotson's impressive showing might lead to increased reliance on him in the upcoming games.
On the Ravens' side, wide receiver Zay Flowers lived up to the pre-game hype, showcasing his skills and proving himself as a force to be reckoned with. Despite the presence of well-known receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Flowers demonstrated his capabilities by accumulating 37 yards on two receptions, including a spectacular touchdown catch that left fans in awe.
Howell boasts an array of offensive weapons on the Commanders, but the potential loss of McLaurin due to injury could pose a significant challenge as they gear up for the season. Fans are undoubtedly hoping for a swift recovery and an impactful return from the talented wide receiver.
