Washington Redskins vs. Baltimore Ravens: Grades for Each Redskins Unit
Nick Wass/Associated Press

If the Washington Redskins' 23-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens is any indication, the offseason buzz surrounding this team has been focused on the wrong side of the ball.

For a third consecutive outing, Washington's defense dominated, and the offense, specifically the first-team unit, struggled. Despite the presence of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Andre Roberts and Jordan Reed, the Robert Griffin III-led aerial attack remains grounded.

Playing into the third quarter, Griffin completed five of eight passes and only led Washington to a field goal.

Limiting the Ravens to 300 yards of total offense, a Washington defense that made only subtle changes to its lineup from last season kept the team within striking distance.

Led by Kirk Cousins, the Redskins nearly extended their winning streak to nine games in preseason play. Throwing for 122 yards and two touchdowns in the second half, Cousins missed out on an opportunity to engineer a game-winning drive when Baltimore successfully converted a 4th-and-short in the closing minutes.

With this contest likely being the last one we'll see the starters log significant minutes in, the focus in Washington is quickly turning toward the season opener with the Houston Texans.
