ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Coach Ron Rivera says rookie Sam Howell is expected start at quarterback for the Washington Commanders in their season finale against the Dallas Cowboys.

Howell is set to make his NFL debut with the Commanders eliminated from playoff contention. Rivera said the decision was made to give Howell a look in case the fifth-round pick out of the University of North Carolina gets a chance to be a full-time starter in the pros. Rivera said he initially considered going with Taylor Heinicke before changing his mind after conversations with players and members of his staff.

The Cowboys can win the NFC East with a win and a loss by Philadelphia.
