The Washington Commanders open up their first preseason under new owner Josh Harris with a road game against the Cleveland Browns. Sam Howell will get the start tonight, and will likely get a quarter to give coaches and fans a preview of the season. Washington and Cleveland played in Week 17 last year in a critical game for their playoff hopes. Carson Wentz got the start that day and failed to win as expected. Washington’s elimination gave Howell his first chance to start a game, and he lead the team to victory over the Dallas Cowboys. HC Ron Rivera and new OC Eric Bieniemy want to see Howell have that same success, while improving his game from his rookie year.

Washington has a lot of new players in critical positions this year, both rookies and free agent signings. The offensive line has been an issue under Ron Rivera that has been getting worse every year, and they are looking to end that trend this year under new OL coach Travelle Wharton. The Commanders will have 4 new starters trying to protect Sam Howell this season, and all eyes will be on them when they take the field.
