Even if they don't win out or do win out but others around them push them out of the way, this is not really the team we expected to see about right now. Who would have thought we'd even be entertaining the thought of playoffs right now? But right at this moment even the NFL claims the Rams are still in the hunt sitting at 5-6-1. (that damn tie is going to kill us.)
With the last few games the Rams have the great opportunity to strengthen their position while at the same time weakening others. That's the most power the Rams have seen in nearly a decade. That in itself is an exciting possibility.
- Let’s peek at the NFC wild card standings … Chicago has a grip on the top spot at 8-4. The Green Bay Packers are 8-4 but hold the tiebreaker over the Bears right now, so technically the Packers are in first place in the NFC North. But this one isn’t settled. Chicago and Green Bay will meet again at Soldier Field in Week 15. Both teams have been pounded by injuries, so it’s hard to predict what will happen the rest of the way.
- As for the second NFC wild card pass: Seattle is 7-5, followed by Minnesota (6-6), Tampa Bay (6-6), Dallas (6-6), Washington (5-6 going into tonight’s game vs. the NYG), St. Louis (5-6-1) and New Orleans 5-7.
Nothing is impossible. Stranger things have happened.
