The Baltimore Ravens go head-to-head with the Washington Commanders for its second preseason game of the year.
The Ravens engaged in a tight game with the Philadelphia eagles last week, with a 20-19 win.
The game, a close one, was carried by moves such as Justin Tucker’s 60-yard field goal and Tyler Huntley’s 10-yard TD pass to Tylan Wallace.
The win established the Ravens as a team to watch out for, landing them their 24th consecutive preseason victory.
The Ravens and Commanders have played a total of 7 games against one another, with the Ravens holding a 4-3 record over the Washington team.
The teams last played together on Oct. 4 of 2020, with the Ravens taking the win.
Monday’s game will take place at FedEx Field in Summerfield, Maryland
Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.
On Tuesday Aug. 15 the Ravens and Commanders participated in a joint practice with a few not so play flights.
Washington cornerback Emmanuel Forbes Jr. and Ravens wide-receiver Tylan Wallace started swinging at each other, setting the stage for the second set of scuffles.
“Joint practices are a challenge — always,” Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. “You’ve got two teams out here, and there is a lot of pride. I thought it was a really good practice. We had a couple dust-ups, which you don’t want to see, but it’s not really unexpected. I thought they got handled pretty quickly.”
According to the team it isn’t unusual to see tensions rise, adding that the purpose of joint practices is to create a competitive but controlled environment.
The later squabble is said to involve tight end Mark Andrews, but details have not been provided.
In the end, all altercations were resolved, Andrews added that he has “A lot of respect for this organization that we’re going against. And today, just being focused, being determined, playing hard.”
The two teams will embark on a second joint-practice today before the Commanders host an exhibition game against the Ravens on Monday night.
