The fourth and final week of the 2019 NFL preseason is here. Here’s an in-depth preview for the Washington Redskins game against the Baltimore Ravens in preseason Week 4.
The final week of the 2019 NFL preseason is here. NFL fans, rejoice! That means that in less than two weeks, we’ll be watching real, regular-season NFL action. But until that point, there’s one final obstacle to get over. And that’s the fourth preseason game.
The final preseason contest is often — if not, always — the least exciting and least important game of the preseason. Teams will rest all of their key starters and the game is mostly used to evaluate any of the fringe roster depth remaining. There will be a few players that it will be nice to get an extended look at, but aside from that, this game doesn’t have much meaning.
Here’s some food for thought on the final preseason game. In 2018, the Redskins saw Kevin Hogan throw for 272 yards, three touchdowns, and two picks in the final game while Rob Kelley and Simmie Cobbs Jr. led the team in rushing and receiving respectively. Only Kelley made the team and he isn’t even in the league anymore.
The performance of certain players in this contest may give them an outside chance to sneak onto the roster. Or maybe the practice squad. But largely, this exhibition will be focused on just a couple of key players that see action. With that in mind, here’s an in-depth look at a preview for the Redskins’ game against the Baltimore Ravens and what to keep an eye on during the game.
