Washington head coach Ron Rivera has announced Dwayne Haskins will be his team's starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The 2019 first-round pick faced competition from veteran Alex Smith - who is coming back from a horrific leg injury - and the recently acquired Kyle Allen, who is well known to Rivera following their time with the Carolina Panthers.
After a difficult season in 2019, Haskins has been given the full backing of his new coach.
"Dwayne's lived up to everything we talked about in January," Rivera said. "He deserves the opportunity. He's going to get the opportunity, and he's going to get my support."
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Chargers have named Tyrod Taylor their starting quarterback for 2020.
The 31-year-old, who was the Buffalo Bills' starter from 2015 to 2017, has been preferred to rookie Justin Herbert for the spot.
"Right now Tyrod Taylor is our starter," Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said.
"Until someone steps up and shows that they can run this team, that's the way we're going into it."
The Chargers open their 2020 season at the Cincinnati Bengals on September 13, the same day that Washington take on Philadelphia.
