The Washington Redskins traveled north to take on the Baltimore Ravens Saturday in Week 3 preseason action, but were unable to secure a victory despite several strong performances, most notably from the first-team defense.

In the 23-17 loss, defensive end Jason Hatcher provided exactly what the Redskins want out of him – a sack and a presence that’s allows his teammates freedom to move around and record sacks of their own. 

Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan recorded his third sack in as many games, while rookie linebacker Trent Murphy also logged a quarterback takedown on the mobile Tyrod Taylor.

While not recording sacks, linebacker Keenan Robinson and cornerback David Amerson also shined – especially in coverage.

The second-year cornerback broke up an attempted pass play to Steve Smith Sr. in the end zone, while Robinson was seen all over the field making big-time plays.

Offensively, the Redskins once again scored two touchdowns, as Santana Moss and Nick Williams each recorded scoring plays.

Moss – a 14-year veteran – took a sharp in route for five yards and quickly turned it into an 11-yard touchdown, while Williams nabbed a seven-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

The lone field goal attempt came off the leg of veteran kicker Kai Forbath – who nailed a 32-yard attempt early in the first quarter.

The Redskins (2-1) finish their preseason schedule on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-2). This will be the last in-game opportunity for players to showcase their abilities before the 53-man roster is finalized.
