9 biggest winners from the Ravens’ preseason victory over the Titans
The Baltimore Ravens went into Thursday night’s matchup looking to extend their historic preseason winning streak to 21 games, and that’s exactly what they did.
It was a typical low-intensity preseason outing with some highlights mixed in with the regular, run-of-the-mill preseason football we’ve become accustomed to. The same preseason football that the Ravens have dominated for over a half-decade now.
While the streak is a fun talking point every August, the true importance of the preseason comes down to roster battles and getting meaningful snaps for the younger players on the team. That’s what the Ravens were able to accomplish on Thursday.
With nearly 40 players sitting due to injuries or just rest purposes, the Ravens got to see plenty of their second and third-stringers throughout the night.
Many of those players find themselves fighting for roster spots or even spots on the practice squad come cut day. These preseason outings are ultimately their best hope to make a lasting impression on the front office and coaching staff.
While the outcome of the game may not mean much (other than preserving the streak), there is still plenty at stake. A standout performance could be the difference between a player losing their job or continuing on with their dream.
Which Ravens players made the most of their snaps on Thursday? Let’s take a look at nine of the biggest winners from Baltimore’s preseason victory over the Tennesse Titans.
