What to watch for: Lions-Ravens

It's the moment we've all been waiting for -- Week 3 of the NFL preseason. We'll see more established stars and potential starters than any other week of the preseason. Around The NFL's Conor Orr dissects what you can expect to see from the 16 games this weekend.

Here's what to what to watch for ...

LIONS at RAVENS (7 p.m.)

» Ravens head coach John Harbaugh did not close the door on some snaps for Breshad Perriman against the Lions, which would be a welcome sight for Ravens fans eager to see their 2015 first-round pick.

» Joe Flacco will make his preseason debut, giving Ravens fans their first significant look at the franchise quarterback in a long time. Flacco's knee still isn't fully healed, but give the man credit for signing up (and hoping) to take a few shots on Saturday to get him into game shape.

» Resident Lions fan and physicality aficionado Kevin Patra chimes in with this: Rookie first-rounder Taylor Decker improved immensely from Week 1 to Week 2 of the preseason. Another solid week of ascension could put the Lions at ease (if that's possible) heading into their season opener.
