Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as excitement continues to build ahead of their Week 1 opener at FedEx Field?

We embark on another holiday weekend for everyone around the country to enjoy. For the Washington Commanders, it's the last period of rest before attention finally turns to their regular-season opener against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, September 10.

The excitement is building exponentially after a memorable offseason for the Commanders. Until then, among the stories causing debate include Jabril Cox's potential impact, Jack Del Rio's influence, Washington's intense roster process, and no room at FedEx Field next Sunday.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders sell out FedEx Field for Week 1

Josh Harris' ownership group recently announced $40 million worth of upgrades to FedEx Field as part of their commitment to fan experience since purchasing the Washington Commanders from Dan Snyder. More importantly, the team confirmed that Week 1 versus the Arizona Cardinals is officially sold out.

This is the first time there's been a legitimate sellout with primarily home fans for more than a decade. The atmosphere promises to be electric and should provide all the motivation needed for a good performance to get the campaign off on a positive note.

It's also a sign that the team's long-suffering support is firmly on board with the new ownership regime and their grand plans to take the franchise forward. For the thousands who stayed away with good reasons under Snyder, an emotionally charged occasion awaits.
