Joe Flacco looks to get back on track in final dress rehearsal

The Baltimore Ravens play their third preseason game at 7:30 p.m. ET against the Washington Redskins at M&T Bank Stadium. Here are a couple things to watch for during the game:

Why watch: This is the last time you'll see Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco until the season opener in Denver on Sept. 13. Flacco hasn't played in a preseason finale since 2008, his rookie season. So, this is the dress rehearsal for Flacco to get back on track. He was nearly perfect in the preseason opener (5-of-6 for 33 yards), and he was frequently off target in the second preseason game (3-of-7 for 23 yards and two interceptions). How long Flacco plays might depend on the pass protection of his banged-up offensive line. The Ravens could start backups on Flacco's blind side with tackle Jah Reid and guard John Urschel.

Did you know: Since Flacco and coach John Harbaugh joined the Ravens in 2008, the Redskins have had three head coaches (Jim Zorn, Mike Shanahan and Jay Gruden) and seven starting quarterbacks (Jason Campbell, Donovan McNabb, Rex Grossman, John Beck, Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy). It shows that two franchises that are located so close -- their home stadiums are separated by 35 miles -- are so different in terms of stability at the game's two most important positions.
