Rams at Football Team: Win/loss predictions for Week 5
The Los Angeles Rams (3-1), once again head aaaaaaaaall the way east in Week 5, taking on the Washington Football Team (1-3) in Landover, Maryland. Make sense?
Oddly enough, both of these teams find themselves in second place in their division. But it's clear that they're on different trajectories. Here we are in Week 5 and WFT head coach Ron Rivera has already made a QB switch, citing that Dwayne Haskins -- the No. 15 overall pick from 2019 -- has "plateaued," despite being given "every opportunity" to be the starter. Make sense?
Meanwhile, the Rams are looking to move to 4-1 on the year, keeping pace with the currently undefeated Seattle Seahawks (4-0) in a tough western division. Can the Rams put it all together on Sunday, defeating an NFC East opponent for the fourth time in five weeks?
The BTH crew make their predictions...
We wanted a blowout against the Giants last week and barely escaped with a win. Will we get that blowout this week? I'm well aware of the cosmos and if I predict an easy win I'm pretty sure we'll lose, so...prepare to enjoy another uncomfortable Sunday!
Prediction: Rams win, 20-16

Washington doesn’t suck as much as we want them to. That’s a problem. I’m worried about how close last week’s game was with the Giants. Will the Rams bounce back? Fuck it. Sure.
Prediction: Rams win, 28-10
The Washington football team has no name, no QB and no chance. I think the Rams will look to open up the deep game to get a feel for what will work against a weaker opponent that’s in disarray.
Prediction: Rams win, 40-6
The Washington Whatevers are so predictable that I can go into each football season knowing nothing about them and can correctly predict that they suck. Dan Snyder reminds me of Snidley Whiplash except less-likable and even less-successful. His ideas on marketing & branding are on par with Crystal Pepsi and New Coke. What I'm saying is, of the two football owners, I hate Stan Kroenke more. But Dan Snyder is a very close second.
Prediction: Rams win, 105-3
The Rams are facing a team with no real name.
Prediction: Rams win, 27-13
Rams win this game because the defense finally scores. The real win will come from coming off of that specific field healthy though.
Prediction: Rams win, 22-13
Kyle Allen at QB? This should be easy work for the Rams. Hopefully easier than last week’s “easy work”. Will be a good test for Rams offensive line against the Football Team’s front 7, with or without Chase Young. Free Darrell Henderson and lets coast to 4-1.
Prediction: Rams win, 26-13
31-13 didn't work out last week. Staying the course
Prediction: Rams win, 31-13
Expect the offense to get back on track in this one, even with the Rams facing the ferocious defensive line of Washington. Also, Kyle Allen, I'm sorry pal, but I smell 3 interceptions in your near future.
Prediction: Rams win, 27-13
If you enjoyed the Rams/Giants game last week, then I expect that you’re in for a real treat this week. The team who shall not be named is ranked 4th in defensive DVOA, meaning that they are by far the best defense they have played so far this year. The good news is that the Rams are 2nd in offensive DVOA. I look for another struggle-fest, with the Rams coming away with a win.
Prediction: Rams win, 20-13
Never fight fair with a stranger, boy. You'll never get out of the jungle that way.
Prediction: Rams win, 34-10
Yay, another cross-country trip! Sean McVay & Co. should make light work of a team (without a name) that's already in some early season turmoil. Let's keep Sloman off the field if he's not absolutely necessay, mmmkay?
Prediction: Rams win, 28-13
