Redskins vs. Ravens: Live Score, Highlights and Recap for the Preseason Week 3

Tonight, the Washington Redskins and the Baltimore Ravens renew the long-standing exhibition rivalry as the "Battle of the Beltway 2011" comes to a television near you.

I mean, honestly, is it really a rivalry when they only meet once every four years in a meaningful game?

Anyway, tonight might offer a glimpse into who might be the starting quarterback in Week 1 of the regular season.

On the Redskins side of the ball, there are a couple areas to look out for that I'll be analyzing in this slide show during the game. One of the first things is who is quarterbacking. Like I said above, whoever starts tonight could very well be the Week 1 starter.

The offensive line did great against the Steelers, but only okay against the Colts.  They opened up some nice holes for the running backs, but both John Beck and Rex Grossman got pressured a little more than they should have.  Tonight the line will get another test and we'll see how they respond.

The wide receiving core is still muddled.  Outside of Santana Moss, it's hard to get a real grasp on who falls where.  Tonight is the night for guys like Terrence Austin, Donte' Stallworth, Leonard Hankerson and Niles Paul to make a name for themselves.

The defense had played extremely well, and the Ravens offense has played a bit poorly.  It's time to see which is true.  If the 'Skins give up a lot of yards to the Ravens' starters, that could be a bad sign.

And lastly, if Ryan Torain gets to play, it will be interesting to see how he does given the pressure put on him by Tim Hightower and Roy Helu Jr.
