There have no doubt been great days in the histories of both the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens. However, they face a bit of uncertainty entering 2017. To try and answer questions, they’ll have a big task in the 2017 NFL preseason. Their preseason begins on Thursday as the Redskins travel to M&T Bank Stadium to face the Ravens in Week 1.
Change was common on the Redskins roster this offseason. They lost their starting receivers from last year, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. However, they hope that Terrelle Pryor can come in and pick up the slack. They also have hopes for Josh Doctson, who missed much of his rookie season due to injury.
Washington also ramped up their defensive talent. Adding guys like Zach Brown, Jonathan Allen and many others should prove to be huge for this unit. If they can step up, this team will be far more complete and dangerous in the NFC East.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of questions about the Ravens. Their defense is going to be stout, one of the best in the league. However, Baltimore’s offense is littered with question. Kenneth Dixon’s suspension and injury have ended his season. Meanwhile, they have questionable wide receiver talent. As such, there’s concern about what overall this team can do.
