Week 5 will officially go down as the most interesting week of football for the Washington Football Team since the 2020 season opener after recent news that quarterback Dwayne Haskins has been benched in favor of Kyle Allen, and Alex Smith will be Allen's immediate backup.
Continuing the trend of turnover at the quarterback position, Allen marks the 22nd starting QB under team owner, Dan Snyder.
Washington is set to take on the Los Angeles Rams and former Washington offensive coordinator, Sean McVay. The Rams will be looking to defeat the entire NFC East in four of their first five weeks of play - They're fresh off an underwhelming 17-9 victory over the injury-riddled New York Giants last Sunday.
Here's everything you need to know about the matchup.
