STORYLINE: Battle of the Beltway!


Also a meeting of strong-running, tough-defense clubs who are both in the playoff scramble.


The Ravens are hot. They have won six of their past seven, scoring no less than 27 points in those six. Rookie QB JOE FLACCO (see Lenny Moore quotes above) has thrown 11 touchdowns against two interceptions and posted a 99.1 passer rating in that streak. “We have four games left and we need to continue to do what we’ve been doing,” says Flacco. “That starts with Washington.”


Let’s see: a December night game outdoors? Could call for a rush attack. Both teams are equipped here, on both sides of the ball. The Redskins will pound the NFL’s No. 2 rusher CLINTON PORTIS (1,228 yards). He goes against a defense that has not allowed a 100-yard rusher in a league-best 31 games. The Ravens, with the NFL’s third-ranked rushing game (against the league’s No. 7 rush defense), packed almost 500 pounds of beef into their backfield last week with LE’ RON MC CLAIN (260 pounds) and rookie RAY RICE (200) carrying the load for a banged-up WILLIS MC GAHEE.

We can only hope the Skins gameplan is to run the ball. :lol:


Any Skins fans that show up will get a treat to sit in a real NFL stadium. Actually, Skins fans shouldn't come here...it will ruin them....they will keep thinking "What a dump I'm sitting in at Landover Stadium" at every Skins home game.


Ravens fans will also show them how to take it to the next level. The 12th man will raise hell on Sunday Night at Ravens Stadium.

GAME PLAN: The Ravens always want to establish the run, but they will test the Redskins deep if Washington uses eight men in the box. Joe Flacco has been looking downfield more, which has produced several big plays. Defensively, the Ravens will focus on the Washington's run game, whether it's Clinton Portis or Ladell Betts. There is little concern that quarterback Jason Campbell will beat them.
