BALTIMORE, MD. - The 'Skins will be on the road, but it'll be the shortest distance they travel all season. 32 miles separates FedEx Field from M&T Bank Stadium.  Washington (2-2) has won two straight games after starting the season 0-2. While it's been up and down, the 'Skins are hoping to start the second quarter of the season off on a high note, facing a Ravens (3-1) team coming off of a 28-27 loss to the Raiders at home.

These two don't get to play much, with only five meetings in the regular season. The last time they met was in December 2012 when Washington escaped with an overtime win. " You know, when you're playing a franchise like the Baltimore Ravens that have been consistently good and competitive year-in and year-out and have good players, I think it's always a great challenge. It's where we want to get to be at their level of consistency. So it's going to be a great challenge," says head coach Jay Gruden.

The Ravens have a mutual respect for the Redskins as well, and wish they played more. "There’s no bad blood between these two teams,” Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs says.

Kickoff is at 1:00 p.m. News 3 will be at M&T Bank Stadium and will be bringing you highlights and a recap on News 3 at 10 & 11.

Bright Spots: Matt Jones ran for 117 yards on 22 carries last week. The 'Skins are hoping to replicate that performance, which will open up the passing game for Cousins and co. " I just think his decisevness is key. You know, when he's decisive in his runs, whether he's right or not, he's still hard to tackle," says head coach Jay Gruden.
