Washington vs. Baltimore: Redskins Preseason Week 3 Game Preview
Evan Vucci/Associated Press

Both undefeated, the Week 3 matchup between the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens will be the closest simulation of a regular-season game on the teams' preseason slates.

Often called the "dress rehearsal" for the season opener, the starters for both teams should be featured heavily in this contest.

Coming off a win over the Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore, the NFL's top rushing team in preseason play, will look to continue its success on the ground against Washington's first-team defense.

Plagued by turnovers and penalties in their 24-23 victory over the Cleveland Browns, the Redskins want a more consistent effort from their offense. As ESPN.com's John Keim notes, Washington is looking for its first-team unit to register its first touchdown of the preseason.

While a victory in this contest is no forecast for regular-season success, more than any other preseason game, this matchup will give us a glimpse into the strengths and weaknesses of both teams.

With that said, here is Washington's preseason Week 3 preview.
