The Baltimore Ravens have been perfect in the postseason since 2016.
With their win over the Arizona Cardinals, 24-17, they have now won 22 straight preseason games.
Baltimore has a chance to make it 23 if they defeat the Washington Commanders on August 27.
But aside from having most of their starters back and not letting up even in preseason games, quarterback Tyler Huntley is a huge reason for their preseason success.

Pro Football Focus writer Ari Meirov shared Huntley’s stats in two preseason games.
The former Utah standout has completed 90.6 percent of his passes (29 of 32) for 238 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions.
Those numbers give him a 118.4 passer rating.
Huntley also did fairly well last season when Lamar Jackson suffered a season-ending ankle injury.
He started four out of seven games and completed 122 passes for 1,081 yards and three touchdowns.
Unfortunately, Baltimore suffered a six-game losing streak to close their campaign.
Huntley The Reason For Jackson’s Contract Delay?
The Ravens have seen what they have with Huntley and that’s why they placed an exclusive-rights free agent tender on him this offseason.
That said, he could be their fallback if nothing happens with their negotiations with Jackson.
Their starting quarterback will play out the fifth-year option of his rookie contract worth $23 million.
However, both parties haven’t agreed to a contract extension.
It has been reported that Jackson was offered more money than what Kyler Murray signed for with the Cardinals.
But Jackson hasn’t signed because he wants a fully-guaranteed deal.
Does Baltimore see Huntley as a worthy successor if they can’t sign Jackson?
Of course, the ideal scenario is to have both quarterbacks.
Either way, they have a play-caller that is capable of leading the Ravens to success.
