The defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens will wrap up their preseason with a trip to St. Louis to take on the Rams. 

This is becoming a tradition. It is the third time in four years that the Ravens will have ended their preseason on the turf of the Edward Jones Dome while taking on the Rams. 

The Ravens are a solid 2-1 in the preseason. However, they did lose to the Carolina Panthers their last time out in the preseason game where the starters get the most run. 

Meanwhile, the Rams are just hoping to get off the schneid. The Rams are 0-3, but they have shown flashes. That includes taking a 20-10 lead over the Denver Broncos into halftime in their last game.

Top Storyline: Roster Jostling

Anyone tuning into the final preseason game looking to catch some NFL action is going to be sorely disappointed. I mean, this is an NFL game, but it is not going to resemble NFL action. 

Play-calling is going to be bland and straightforward, and starters will play little if at all. 

The main priority in this game will be for both teams to escape without injury and to get some game film on players in key battles on the depth chart or for a spot on the roster. That means, for several players, this game is huge. 

So, while this game is almost entirely inconsequential to the big picture, it will not be without intensity. 


Prediction: Rams 20, Ravens 14

One of my favorite picks of the entire NFL season is picking a winless preseason team in its final exhibition game. While preseason records have no impact on the season, every team would still prefer to taste victory at least once. 

More often than not, that motivation is enough to make the difference.
