REGULAR SEASON WEEK 5WASHINGTON REDSKINS (2-2) vs. BALTIMORE RAVENS (3-1)
Sunday, Oct. 9 | 1:00 p.m. ET
M&T Bank Stadium (71,008) | Baltimore
The Washington Redskins will travel this week in search of their third consecutive victory when the team faces the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5. Kickoff at M&T Bank Stadium is scheduled for 1 p.m.
Despite the teams' proximity, the Redskins and Ravens have only met in regular season play five times since the Ravens' inception in 1996. The game will be the Redskins' second regular season road game against the Ravens, and a victory Sunday would represent the Redskins' first regular season win in the city of Baltimore since defeating the Baltimore Colts, 14-13, at Memorial Stadium on Oct. 23, 1955.
The Ravens are guided by Pro Football Hall of Fame tight end Ozzie Newsome, the team's current General Manager, but the Redskins enter Sunday's contest with a history-making tight end of their own. Redskins fourth-year tight end Jordan Reed recorded his 200th career reception last week in his 38th career game, becoming the fastest tight end in NFL history to reach the milestone. He surpassed the 39 career games needed for Pro Football Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow Sr. to reach the mark.
