The Redskins set another ratings record Thursday night, receiving the highest preseason ratings in team history during the team's nationally televised game against the Baltimore Ravens.

The broadcast posted an 18.7 preliminary combined overnight household rating in the Washington D.C. market area, beating the team's previous record of 16.3, set in the preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Aug. 12.

The game also received a 30 share, tying the team's previous record. The broadcast had a 12.8 rating for males aged 18-to-49, as well as a 14.2 rating for males aged 25-to-54, both team highs.

Each rating point represents a percent of the estimated television households in the market area watching the broadcast, while the share is the percentage of televisions in use that are tuned to the game.

Through three games, the Redskins are averaging a 16.1 household rating, the highest preseason average in team history.

"The entire Redskins organization continues to be thankful for the incredible support of Redskins fans," Redskins spokesman Tony Wyllie said. "We appreciate the continued strength and dedication of Redskins Nation."

The Redskins' next broadcast is Thursday, Sept. 1, as the Redskins close the preseason at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET on WRC-TV (NBC-4) and Comcast SportsNet.
