Ravens rally to win after 'Skins' QBs duel

BALTIMORE -- Rex Grossman and John Beck each threw a touchdown pass in their duel to become the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins, who lost to the Baltimore Ravens 34-31 in a preseason game on Thursday night.

Tyrod Taylor threw a nine-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Jones with 22 seconds left for the Ravens (2-1), a score set up by LaQuan Williams' 38-yard punt return.

Grossman started for the Redskins (2-1), and each quarterback alternatingly played two series before third-stringer Kellen Clemens entered in the fourth quarter.

Grossman went eight for 15 for 112 yards, directed an 80-yard scoring drive and finished with a quarterback rating of 99.9.

Beck completed six of 10 passes for 108 yards with an interception for a 90.8 rating. He guided Washington on a 97-yard march against Baltimore's second-string defense for a 28-21 lead in the third quarter.
