The long wait for football is finally over, as Week 1 of the NFL Preseason has arrived.
The Washington Redskins will travel to face the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night, with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
As with the start of any season, there is plenty of excitement about the year ahead. There are also plenty of unknowns.
The most obvious question mark is who will be the starting quarterback. They have two veterans in the mix with Case Keenum, who arrived over the offseason from Denver, and Colt McCoy, who has been with the Redskins since 2014, and of course the rookie out of Ohio State, Dwayne Haskins. The battle for the starting job will shift to an NFL field on Thursday night.

There are also questions about the offensive line. More specifically, about their Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams. When will he return? Will he return at all?
Of course, the preseason will feature key position battles up and down the roster.
All of these questions will be answered over the next four weeks, and NBC Sports Washington will be here to guide you through.
