Washington rookie quarterback Sam Howell had an unforgettable NFL debut. Howell started Washington’s season finale against the Dallas Cowboys. In an otherwise meaningless game for Washington, Howell got the opportunity to audition for a potential role next season.
The start proved well for Howell, leading the Commanders to a 26-6 win. His first pass resulted in a touchdown to star wide receiver, Terry McLaurin.
It was an incredible moment for the former North Carolina star, except McLaurin tossed the game ball into the stands through all the excitement.
