LA Rams’ game-day finds OC Kevin O’Connell returning back face the 1-3 Washington Football team and attempt to sweep the NFC East division.

The LA Rams have won three games this season, all against teams from the NFC East. So far, the LA Rams have defeated the Dallas Cowboys at home, the Philadelphia Eagles on the road, and the New York Giants at home. The Rams will attempt to complete a clean sweep of the NFC East Division as the team travels to face the Washington Football Team.

The weekend weather is currently forecast to be rainy conditions with cloudy skies and a steady wind from the northeast in a range of 5 to 10 mph. The temperature ranges will be falling over the next several days., from a high temperature of 81 degrees Wednesday to a game day high of 70 degrees under cloudy skies. The forecast projects showery weather in the morning, building to a steady rain later in the day. No fans will be present in the stadium to watch the game.

Low scoring game?

The LA Rams need their offensive brain trust to work overtime in this one. The Washington football team is a struggling offense, but the defense is ranked among the top 10 in the NFL in yards surrendered.  That defensive mastery does not translate into point surrendered just yet, as Washington’s defense is surrendering 28 points per game, only good enough for 22nd place in the NFL.  Of course, the offense has coughed up the ball four times, placing the team at a (minus two) turnover deficit.

The LA Rams offense faces a new challenge this week. Washington is 1-3 but is a good defense against the pass. Not only do they have 14 quarterback sacks over four games, but they are getting a lot of solid mileage out of a talented secondary. They do have a weakness, as they do give up yards on the ground.  Averaging nearly 130 yards to rushing attacks weekly, this is perhaps one of the easiest defenses to run the ball against.

Suprise starter?

Likely due to his struggles so far, and the fact that Rams offensive coordinator is so familiar with him, the Washington Football team has made a quarterback change. They will sit Dwayne Haskins, and will instead start former Carolina Panther’s quarterback Kyle Allen.

Per The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue, Allen loves to throw a deep ball, but in doing so is susceptible to interceptions.
