Skins-Ravens 411 presented by AAA: Battle of the backs

Are the Redskins and Ravens rivals? 

Not if you ask Josh Wilson.

“I don’t think so,” he said after practice Wednesday. “We got enough rivalries as it is.”

Wilson grew up in Prince George’s County a fan of the Redskins. He played at Maryland and has suited up for both of the area’s NFL teams, having spent the 2010 season in Baltimore and the past two in Washington.

But he’s never played in the Battle of the Beltways, since Sunday’s game will be the teams’ first meeting since 2008. The Ravens lead the series against their neighbors to the south, 3-1.

“We have a whole division of rivalries,” Wilson cracked, referring to the notoriously competitive NFC East. “I don’t think we can accept any more applications.”
