Week 16 NFL Power Rankings: St. Louis Rams Sit At No. 31 In Latest SB Nation Rankings

The St. Louis Rams (2-11) couldn't stop the bleeding on Sunday, losing their fifth straight game, but they did get a spark from Kellen Clemens in their loss to the Bengals. Did it mean anything?

It was yet another bad week for the St. Louis Rams, as they lost again and quarterback Sam Bradford is set to get shut down for the remainder of the season. Amidst the wreckage, at least Steven Jackson has continue to play well, but running backs don't last forever. Is the team wasting his prime years? SB Nation's Joel Thorman has released his Week 16 NFL Power Rankings, and the Rams still are firmly entrenched as the lowest-ranked NFC team, at No. 31:

31. St. Louis Rams (2-12, LW: 31): Sounds like they'll be cleaning house in St. Louis after this season and I can't blame them. The Rams were supposed to take the next step this year.

1. Green Bay Packers (13-1, LW: 1)
