Recap: Ravens defeat Eagles 26-15 in Weather-Shortened game
The Baltimore Ravens continued their preseason win-streak on Thursday night, defeating the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 26-15. Weather may have played a factor in this game, as the contest was concluded after thunderstorms perceived to be in the area. The Eagles once trailed 26-0, and weather may or may not have stopped them from fully completing their late-attempted comeback. As aforementioned, the Ravens continued their preseason win-streak, as they have won a franchise-record 16 preseason games in a row, dating back to the 2015-2016 season.
To summarize, the Ravens opened the scoring with two field goals from Justin Tucker, including one from 49 yards out. Afterward, Baltimore would score off a four-yard rushing touchdown from rookie Trace McSorley, making the score 13-0 in the second quarter. Not to mention, Baltimore would score their final 13 points in the quarter from two more touchdowns, both from the arm of McSorley, who passed it to Michael Floyd for 28 yards and Jaleel Scott for 7 yards. Philadelphia would get on the board of football two Josh McCown passing touchdowns, who is the most recent signee in terms of signal-callers for the Eagles.
Overall, the Ravens shut down the Philadelphia offense for the most part, and forced the Eagles to pass the ball throughout the game, as Baltimore held them to just 47 total rushing yards off 18 carries. Next, the Ravens will travel to Landover, Maryland, to face the Washington Redskins in the final preseason game on August 29th, 2019.
