Protecting quarterback Sam Howell is a major headache the Washington Commanders have not yet solved

Sam Howell on Sunday became just the sixth quarterback since the Super Bowl era began and the first since Warren Moon in 1995 to get sacked nine times and throw four interceptions.

The interceptions are on Howell, and the second-year pro could probably get rid of the ball quicker. But the Washington Commanders' biggest issue coming off a 37-3 loss to Buffalo is their remade offensive line protecting Howell better after giving up an NFL-high 19 sacks through three games - especially with the fierce front of the Philadelphia Eagles up next.

“Sam's a great quarterback and a tough kid," right tackle Andrew Wylie said. “As an offensive lineman, that’s on our unit. We take that personally. We've got to do a better job of keeping him upright and getting him that extra tick.”
