2012 NFL schedule: Rams look to keep hopes alive in Buffalo

The St. Louis Rams look to get to .500 and keep their slim playoff chances alive when they play the Bills on Sunday.

The St. Louis Rams, fresh off an overtime win over the NFC West-leading San Francisco 49ers, look to keep alive their playoff hopes this week when they hit the road to play the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

St. Louis (5-6-1) can't afford anymore losses if they hope to leapfrog the several teams in front of them and claim one of the NFC's two Wild Card spots, but the win over the 49ers kept the Rams in the hunt. The team will look to get more out of its offense, which contributed zero of the team's 16 points in last weekend's win.

One of the teams in front of the Rams in the playoff chase is the division rival Seattle Seahawks, who host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. San Francisco hosts the Miami Dolphins

The Rams and Bills kick off at noon CT on Sunday. The game will be televised by FOX.
