Week 2 of the NFL preseason is here. For all 32 teams, it means training camp is either over or has just a few sessions remaining before players get to return home after a long and grinding camp.
For the Baltimore Ravens, they held their final camp practice on Thursday. Now, it's time to focus on their next preseason opponent in the Dallas Cowboys. Baltimore will travel to Texas to face the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium at 7:00 p.m. ET on Saturday.
For most NFL teams, the second week of the preseason means the starters get to play for most of the first half before giving way to backups to finish the contest.
That's because the starters by now usually have a full camp under their belt, so they should be able to operate effectively for at least a half.
In the preseason, the objective of teams is not to get a win or improve their record. Instead, they're more focused on their players improving and sharpening their skills in hopes of being ready to perform at their best when the regular season opens.
Another goal is to do this while also keeping players healthy. For Baltimore, this game will be less about preparing for Dallas and more about improving themselves while staying healthy.
Here's what to look for between the Ravens and the Cowboys in their preseason matchup.
