What ultimately matters in football is the final score, the win or the loss.  Unless it’s the preseason. Then, the most important things are staying healthy, getting reps (for those who need it), settling your roster decisions, and implementing new schemes.

For the Ravens, week 3’s preseason game against the Redskins was somewhat of a success despite the 31-13 final score.  Before the first team offense and defense bowed out to the second team units, the Ravens held a 13-0 lead and faced little resistance from the Redskins.

The backups proceeded to go on a 31-0 run, which is indeed concerning, though not terribly so.  If nothing else, it puts an exclamation point on the need for this team to get its numerous injured players healthy, and quick.

Now they head into a two week rest period with the exception of the fringe roster prospects, who will duke it out one last time in an effort to continue their NFL dreams.

As for us, we are going to dive in a little deeper as we analyze snap counts and individual grades provided by the gurus at Pro Football Focus.  We’ll see who really played well, and who didn’t play so well, beyond the stat lines.

We’ll get started by taking a look at the highest rated offensive players, one of whom is a major surprise and a name you may not even be familiar with.
