The Washington Football Team is taking on the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5. Here are five players to watch in that contest.
Week 5 is going to be very different for the Washington Football Team than the first four weeks of the season. The reason for this is simple. There’s a new quarterback starting.
Yes, Ron Rivera elected to turn to Kyle Allen at this early stage in the season with Washington sporting a 1-3 record. They’re still in play in the woeful NFC East and are, stunningly, only a half a game out of first place. With three games upcoming against divisional opponents, Washington will be hoping to win a few times to put themselves in position to challenge for the divisional crown.
Before they get to that three-game divisional stretch, they’re going to have to take on the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams are sitting at 3-1 and have looked solid through four games. However, they did only beat the Giants by eight points last week, so perhaps Washington will be able to compete with them and earn a victory.
For Washington to win, they’re going to need a handful of players to step up and either exploit the Rams weaknesses or fill in Washington’s biggest weaknesses. It won’t be easy for a banged-up team with a rebuilding roster, but it is possible.
Here’s a look at five players to watch against the Rams that could have a big impact on the Washington Football Team’s chances of winning in Week 5.
