The 2014 preseason wraps up tonight for the New Orleans Saints, as coach Sean Payton's club hosts the Baltimore Ravens tonight at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (7:00 p.m. CDT).

Both squads enter the contest with 3-0 records, and while going unbeaten in the preseason is a nice accomplishment, an injury-free outing tonight would undoubtedly please both Payton and Ravens coach John Harbaugh. 

For the Saints, a number of position battles remain unresolved, and tonight's contest will provide the coaching staff and front office with one final strip of film before they make their decisions. 

The race for the No. 2 quarterback spot between Luke McCown and Ryan Griffin will conclude tonight, as both signal-callers will get one last chance to earn the right to back up Drew Brees.

Wide receiver is another position to keep an eye on, as Nick Toon, Robert Meachem, Brandon Coleman, Joseph Morgan and Seantavius Jones continue to compete for spots on the final roster. 

New Orleans' starting units may not see many minutes tonight, but Payton's squad will still be looking to end the preseason on a positive note.
