Redskins, Ravens focus on selves, not rivalry

BALTIMORE (AP) - The Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens have far more important goals Saturday night than earning bragging rights in a tepid rivalry.

This is the third exhibition game for both teams, so each coaching staff intends to get one long, final look at their starting units before the regular season begins.

The Ravens are looking for another strong showing by an offense that has thus far embraced the playbook of coordinator Gary Kubiak.

First-year Redskins coach Jay Gruden anticipates quarterback Robert Griffin III being effective and mobile while avoiding the temptation of straying from the pocket.

Both coaches say most their starters will play at least a half.

The Redskins and Ravens play their home games in Maryland, but they face each other infrequently and thus have not formed anything resembling a rivalry.
