Washington’s defense takes over to help the Commanders rally past the Cardinals 20-16
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Sam Howell threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score to help the Washington Commanders rally past the Arizona Cardinals 20-16.
Howell made up for his own fumble that produced a Cardinals touchdown and could have contributed to a stunning loss.
Washington’s defense took over the game late with Montez Sweat strip-sacking Joshua Dobbs and setting up Howell’s go-ahead 6-yard TD run.
The Commanders were celebrating the first game since Josh Harris’ group took over as the new owners.
Arizona lost Jonathan Gannon’s first game as coach.
