2012 NFL schedule: Rams head to Tampa Bay in Week 16

USA TODAY Sports

With faint playoff hopes, St. Louis plays the Bucs at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday

The Rams aren't out of playoff contention. Yet. Even after their 36-22 loss to the Vikings on Sunday, St. Louis can reach the postseason. But they would need lots of help. The Rams will try to do their part when they travel to Tampa Bay in Week 16 and Seattle in Week 17.

Sam Bradford has been nothing but average for St. Louis this season, throwing 18 touchdowns and 11 interceptions and compiling a QBR of 48.8 (on a scale of 0-100, 50 being average). He surely hasn't been the perennial Pro Bowler the Rams thought he could be, and a disappointing 2012 season will be his best statistical season to date. With Bradford at the helm, the Rams are 27th in the NFL in scoring.

Tampa Bay was a hot midseason pick to make a playoff run but cooled off considerably in recent weeks, capped off by a 41-0 whooping by New Orleans on Sunday. The loss eliminated the Bucs from playoff contention and forced them to set their sights on 2013. Rookie running back Doug Martin has shown potential behind a makeshift offensive line.

Here's the entire NFL schedule for Week 16:

Saturday, December 22
