Vikings vs. Rams, Week 15: Playoff hopes dashed

The Rams likely saw their postseason chance end on Sunday.

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings likely ended the Rams' chances of making the NFC playoffs. With a 6-7-1 record the Rams are now a game and a half behind Minnesota, Dallas, New York, and Washington for the sixth and final playoff spot. For the Rams to reach the postseason they would have to win their final two games and have Minnesota and New York lose their last two games each while Dallas and Washington would also have to lose their one remaining game not against each other.

As Turf Show Times stated, the run was fun while it lasted:

With the St. Louis Rams falling to 6-7-1 for the year, their playoff hopes are surely over. On the bright side Rams fans can relax for the rest of the season, knowing that the future is very bright for this team. After all, would you have guessed the Rams would be this good this fast? Hey, we've got two first round picks in the draft baby!

St. Louis finished the season with two straight road games at Tampa Bay and Seattle. The Seahawks game looks especially daunting, as Seattle is undefeated at home this season and could be playing for a division title and first round playoff bye. Seattle also could need a win to clinch their own playoff spot.
