Commanders break the Ravens' preseason streak

The Washington Commanders have an opportunity to end a prolific unbeaten preseason run on Monday Night Football. John Harbaugh's men are currently 24 games without tasting defeat during warmups, which is an NFL record and a testament to their strength in depth over a prolonged period.

While the Baltimore Ravens deserve credit for this record, it's pretty meaningless all things considered. Something that was highlighted by offensive lineman Sam Cosmi, who didn't give the distinction much weight in the grand scheme of things.

Records are made to be broken, as the old saying goes. The Commanders have an added incentive on national television and being in front of their home fans for the first time since Dan Snyder sold the team, so the stars could be aligning for a big performance.

Washington can also take great heart from their two joint practices against the Ravens. They matched the physical side of things and didn't back down an inch, which is another sign of the change in attitude across the locker room under a coaching staff that is demanding nothing but excellence with jobs on the line.

If the Commanders could beat the Ravens on Monday, it would mean more than your average warmup triumph. Especially considering how much Baltimore has been bragging about having such a lengthy unbeaten record.
