Things to watch: Redskins at Ravens

POSITION: Wide receiver. The Ravens have the perfect compliment in starters Anquan Boldin and Lee Evans. The logjam is at the No. 3 spot, where David Reed, Torrey Smith and Tandon Doss are battling. Reed runs the best routes, Smith has the best speed and Doss has the best hands.

VETERAN: Strong safety Tom Zbikowski. He gets his turn next to Ed Reed after watching Bernard Pollard start the previous game. This battle could go down to the final preseason game.ROOKIE: Defensive end Pernell McPhee. The rookie fifth-round pick out of Mississippi State has had two fumbles negated by instant replay this preseason. But that hasn't erased the fact that McPhee has impressed the Ravens with his ability to make big plays.

ON THE BUBBLE: Tight end Davon Drew. He has steadily improved each year and is the front-runner to be the Ravens' third tight end behind Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta. Drew is the only tight end on the roster who hasn't had a catch this preseason.
