Magic Johnson reacts to the Commanders’ Week 1 win

It was a celebratory day at FedEx Field. The Washington Commanders kicked off a new era. New managing partner Josh Harris led the way with several of his minority partners, which included Magic Johnson, Mitchell Rales and Mark Ein.

For a while during Sunday’s game, it looked like the Commanders might disappoint everyone. However, a stellar defensive effort and a Sam Howell touchdown run clinched the game for Washington.

The sold-out crowd at FedEx Field was ecstatic. So were Washington’s new owners.

Johnson took to Twitter to talk about the experience for him and his wife, Cookie.

Ein took to Twitter before Sunday’s game to thank the fans and community.

It was a landmark day for the Washington Commanders. The true dawn of a new era.
