The Ravens enter tonight’s preseason game against the Titans on an unprecedented winning streak: Baltimore has won 20 consecutive preseason games, the longest streak in NFL history.
Baltimore hasn’t lost a preseason game since 2015, and last year the Ravens broke the all-time record for consecutive preseason wins, a record previously held by Vince Lombardi’s Packers at 19 straight from 1959 to 1962.
The Packers’ streak was snapped by a loss to the college all-star team (yes, NFL teams used to play college all-star teams in the preseason), and the Packers have since won four straight preseason games against the NFL. team, so the Packers still hold the record for most preseason wins against NFL teams at 23. If the Ravens go 3-0 this preseason, they will match that record.
The preseason is meaningless, so maybe no one should care about the record, but Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson said last year that he and his teammates do.
“We want to win at the end of the day,” Jackson said last year. “I don’t care if it’s the preseason. In practice we compete against each other. We want to win. It’s good to just keep winning.”
The Ravens will look to keep winning tonight and make it 21st in a row.
