LANDOVER, Md. – The Washington Football Team loses the Los Angeles Rams at halftime by a score of 30-10.

Rams Quarterback Jared Goff completed 21 of 30 passes for 309 yards with two touchdowns and 1 interception. Goff threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to Wide Receiver Robert Woods in the second quarter. In the fourth quarter, Goff completed an 11-yard touchdown pass to Runningback Darrell Henderson Jr.

Late in the second quarter, Washington Quarterback Kyle Allen took a hit to the helmet by Rams Cornerback Jalen Ramsey, which removed Allen from the game for a potential concussion. The injury resulted in the return of Quarterback Alex Smith, who had been declared active today for the first time since 2018.

The Rams defense took control of the game by completing eight sacks throughout the game.

Washington was only able to score one touchdown, which was a 7-yard rush for Quarterback Kyle Allen late in the first quarter. The other score that Washington managed was a successful 48-yard field goal attempt by Kicker Dustin Hopkins.

Washington looks to bounce back from this loss as they travel to New York to face off against the division-rival Giants. The game will take place on Sunday, Oct. 18 with kickoff at 1:00 p.m.
