Week 5 over Washington Football Team

Week 5 was an eventful game for the Washington Football Team. They had decided to bench last year’s first-round pick in quarterback Dwayne Haskins, rolling with Kyle Allen instead. Following an injury to Allen, Washington then saw Alex Smith take his first snaps since suffering his horrific leg injury.

Washington didn’t necessarily have any continuity on offense, and they really aren’t a good team in general. Playing a team competing with a couple others for the likes of Trevor Lawrence, it was the easiest of victories for the Rams. Los Angeles finished with their largest margin of victory, beating Washington 30-10.

As stated previously, the Football Team is dead last in offense. They are also -2 in turnover differential, which is pretty far down. Washington simply cannot move the football. That’s their biggest issue. Oddly enough, that’s the Bears’ biggest glaring issue as well.

However, Chicago’s defense is only allowing 19.3 points per game compared to Washington’s 27.0.

Following the stomping of Washington, the Rams proceeded to get beaten pretty handedly by the injury-ridden San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. Remember, the week prior, the 49ers were trounced by Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Miami Dolphins.

It’s safe to say we’re not really sure what the Rams are just yet. They haven’t beaten anybody of merit, while the Bears are coming off two strong victories. This should be a low-scoring affair, but in all likelihood, the Bears should come out with a win.
