Ravens to face Eagles, Redskins in preseason

OWINGS MILLS -- The Baltimore Ravens' preseason schedule features two rivalries where bragging rights are at stake.

In the second preseason game, the Ravens will host All-Pro wide receiver Terrell Owens and the Philadelphia Eagles. They close the preseason Sept. 1 by hosting the Washington Redskins in the first appearance by the Ravens' neighbor since a preseason game against the Baltimore Colts at Memorial Stadium in 1981.

Owens, of course, is the outspoken player whose trade to Baltimore was nullified by the league in a controversial decision last spring. Owens performed a convincing, mocking rendition of All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis' trademark dance after scoring a touchdown during the Eagles' regular-season win over Baltimore last October. Owens later phoned Lewis and apologized.

The Ravens open the preseason on the road against the Atlanta Falcons between Aug. 11 and Aug. 15. They will play the Eagles at M&T Bank Stadium between Aug. 18 and Aug. 22.

Baltimore travels to the Superdome to play the New Orleans Saints between Aug. 25 and Aug. 29 before closing the preseason with a game against the Redskins.

"It's a good preseason schedule, and our fans will be excited to have the Redskins come to our stadium for the first time in Ravens history," Ravens president Dick Cass said.
