The Baltimore Ravens capped off a successful first week of the preseason with a 17-14 victory over the New Orleans Saints in what was an expectedly sloppy affair.

Despite forcing six turnovers, the Ravens barely squeaked by their foes due in part to a lackluster offensive showing. Perhaps no sentence has better encompassed the idea of preseason football than that one did.

Heading into Week 2 of the preseason, Baltimore will be looking to improve on a few areas. And with only three preseason games this year, the second outing might prove to be the most important of them all.

Starters will play more than they did a week ago and teams will start to resemble the squads that will take the field in a few weeks’ time — at least for the first half or so.

Still, it remains an important time for roster bubble players or those vying for starting jobs. Everyone has something to prove in the preseason, but some have more to prove than others.

Whether it’s players competing for a starting role or players simply fighting for their jobs, the preseason is a crucial time for teams to figure out their roster configuration.

The Ravens are no different.

Let’s take a look at four Ravens with the most to prove as the team travels to Bank of America Stadium to take on the Carolina Panthers.
