The Ravens escaped with their second straight preseason victory Saturday night against the Cowboys, but it wasn’t the prettiest win by any means.  As they say, however, a win is a win.  And in the preseason, the goal is to make progress, get valuable snaps for young players, and find out if the team that has been pieced together can truly compete once the games start to mean something.

Whether players are trying to simply make the team, earn a starting role, or pine for a big contract, a player’s stock is constantly moving, much like the stock of a publicly traded company.  Each practice and game means a different chance to step up, and often memories are short in this line of work.  You can go from has been to hero in a very short time.  Or vice versa.  Click on to see what Ravens stock went up or down this week.
