The Washington Commanders open up their first preseason with their new(est) name against an opponent that has a lot of connections to the current regime. The Carolina Panthers come to FedEx Field Saturday afternoon for the first preseason game of the 2022-23 season for both teams. Washington is starting the Carson Wentz era and Head Coach Ron Rivera said he wants to see the starters play 15-20 snaps before moving to the backups. Curtis Samuel is expected to play after spending most of training camp ramping up his conditioning and practicing sparingly.

“Well, you want to see some consistency out there. You want to see some consistency in the huddle, breaking the huddle, getting to the line of scrimmage and then being successful with the plays that are called. Operating things, doing things well. Hope we get all kinds of situational football going. We would love to see a couple of third downs, some redzone stuff obviously and then some short yardage and goal line. You hope for that in your first game. You target somewhere from 15-20 plays, have a nice drive somewhere about eight or nine plays, stuff like that.”
