Ravens win 19th straight preseason game with victory over Panthers, match Packers for all-time record

Move over Vince Lombardi, John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens have actually matched among your NFL records. 

Harbaugh led the Ravens to their 19th successive preseason triumph Saturday night, connecting Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers groups from 1959 to 1962 for the all-time mark. Despite not having Lamar Jackson nor Trace McSorley for this one, the Ravens had the ability to beat the Carolina Panthers quickly — scoring the last 20 points in a 20-3 triumph. 

Baltimore’s winning streak started versus Carolina in 2016 and has actually continued for 5 years — the longest period for preseason win streaks in league history. While wins and losses do not matter in the preseason, the Ravens do share a location in the record books thanks to the competitive nature of Harbaugh. 

“It means a lot,” Harbaugh stated about the winning streak recently. “Whether it’s a winning streak, or just the idea of how you approach the games. I just think it’s a credit to the players in terms of preparation and the coaches over the years in terms of we run a good training camp, offseason program and guys are ready to play good fundamental football. That’s what wins, whether it’s preseason or whatever it might be.” 

The Ravens usually do not play their beginners in the preseason, making the streak much more excellent. Despite J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards remaining this one, Baltimore had the ability to run for 167 lawns in the triumph. Undrafted novice Nate McCrary led the Ravens with 15 brings for 64 lawns and a goal, while Ty’Son Williams ended up with 10 brings for 47 lawns and a rating. 

Baltimore will attempt to set the NFL record for successive preseason triumphes next Saturday with a roadway match versus the Washington Football Team. The New England Patriots are the only NFL group to win 20 successive video games in the routine season and postseason integrated, winning 21 straight in between 2003 and 2004. The Indianapolis Colts won 23 successive regular-season video games in between 2008 and 2009. 

Baltimore’s streak isn’t anywhere near the magnitude of that excellent run, however the run is still stunning in its own right.
