We know not everyone was home on Friday night, watching the six preseason games. So we’ll try to summarize what you missed below. You can also check out our review for Thursday night’s two games here.
Redskins 16, Colts 3
Ravens 31, Chiefs 13
1. Lee Evans showed what a big impact he could make on the Ravens, catching three passes for 68 yards in limited work.
2. Baltimore did a much better job protecting Joe Flacco than they in the first preaseason game.
3. Chiefs second year player Dexter McCluster looked pretty useful now that he’s primarily a running back. He had 51 yards on eight touches.
4. Chiefs coach Todd Haley doesn’t like running up the score, even in the preseason.
Lions 30, Browns 28
2. The Lions had nine penalties and trailed 21-13 when their starters left the game.
3. Browns quarterback Colt McCoy continued t0 look sharp, with three first half touchdown passes. He’s done a nice job creating when the play isn’t there.
4. Detroit’s running game has looked lackluster in successive weeks.
5. Cleveland running back Brandon Jackson left with a turf toe injury.
Dolphins 20, Panthers 10
Packers 28, Cardinals 20
2. Green Bay’s offensive line struggled again, especially rookie Derek Sherrod.
3. Packers backup QB Matt Flynn lived up to his training camp hype with another great preseason outing.
4. Kevin Kolb had an uneven performance for the Cardinals. They scored six points in his three drives.
5. Cardinals linebacker O’Brien Schofield flashed some pass-rushing skills, which Arizona can desperately use.
Jaguars 15, Falcons 13
2. Jaguars rookie receiver Cecil Shorts looks like a keeper. They needed someone to step up in that receiver group and he has.
3. Julio Jones is a huge addition to the Falcons offense, but don’t overlook No. 3 receiver Harry Douglas. A year further removed from knee surgery, Douglas looks like a big-time weapon. He flashed terrific speed on a 76-yard score.
