    Tiebreaker scenarios for the Rams
    by RamWraith
    12/25/2006

    Philadelphia, at 8-6 before today's game against Dallas, has a leg up on one of the two NFC wild-card spots. The Rams are among five teams in the NFC at 7-8 — with Atlanta, Carolina, Green Bay and the New York Giants. Which one of the five will earn a wild-card playoff berth? Deciphering the Dead Scrolls might be easier than figuring out the tiebreakers.

    — If teams finish with identical records, the first tiebreaker for a playoff spot is head-to-head results. The Rams would lose a tiebreaker with Carolina, having lost to the Panthers on Nov. 19. But they would win a tiebreaker with Green Bay, having beaten the Packers 23-20 on Oct. 8.

    — But the head-to-head scenario won't be applicable in any scenario involving the Rams if more than two teams finish with identical records. In that case, the next tiebreaker is conference record. At 8-8, the Rams, Atlanta, Carolina would all finish 6-6 in conference games. But the Giants and Green Bay would finish 7-5 in conference.

    — The next tiebreaker after conference record is common opponents.

    We still got a shot at Wild Card
    by LARAM
    As it stands today we still have a shot at the last Wild Card spot. Our remaining schedule is a bit kinder than Seattle, Tampa, Minn, Wash, Dallas, and NO. Of course we would have to win out the rest of the year. After looking at the others remaining schedule, it could easily be argued that Seattle, Tampa, Minn, Wash, Dallas, and NO, could easily loose 3 to 4 games each, which would put us right in the stack!!!!!!! If we can win out then we COULD POSSIBLY hold the tie breaker on Minn and Tampa. We already hold te tie breaker on Wash. But we gotta win out and gotta have a lot of help. Keep the faith and hope!!!!!!

    Bernie Bytes: Rams In The Playoff Hunt?

    Bernie Bytes: Rams in the playoff hunt?

    9 hours ago • BY BERNIE MIKLASZ, Post-Dispatch Sports Columnist

    After having won two in a row to improve to 5-6-1, the Rams are lurking as a longshot contender in the NFC playoff race.

    That we’re even having this discussion is pretty amazing given (A) the team’s 15-65 record from 2007 through 2011 and (B) this season’s 0-1-4 winless streak that seemingly reduced the Rams to non-factor status.

    Realistically, the Rams are up against it. In some ways it is premature to discuss their playoff possibilities. But it’s no fun to ignore it, so just for kicks let’s take a look:

    • The remaining schedule gives the Rams an opportunity to make a move. Here’s why: three of their four games are against NFC teams that are scrambling to make it into the postseason as a wild card. After playing at Buffalo on Sunday, the Rams play Minnesota at home, go to Tampa Bay, then conclude the regular season at Seattle. The Rams have a chance to strengthen their position and weaken other contenders by winning the head-to-head games.

    • That said, the Rams have won only one game on the road this season, and that came against an Arizona team that has no quarterback, and very little offense. And three of the Rams’ final four games are on the road. They’ll have to potentially deal with the wind at Buffalo, the heat at Tampa Bay, and blustery conditions at Seattle. Buffalo is 3-2 at home this season; Tampa Bay is 3-3; Seattle is 5-0.

    • Few visiting teams win at Seattle, which has outscored opponents 123-69 in the five home wins this season. Tampa Bay defeated three losing teams at home (Carolina, Kansas City, San Diego) and lost to Washington, New Orleans and Atlanta. But at least Tampa Bay is a winnable game.

    • For now, let’s just concentrate on the next game at hand. The Bills have won their last two home games, beating Miami and Jacksonville. But the Bills were also blown out 52-28 at home by New England, and they found a way to lose a home game to Tennessee (35-34). The early weather forecast for Sunday in Buffalo? A high temperature of 39 degrees with a potential for rain (40 percent) and/or snow showers.

    • 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.

    • No, I didn’t look at all of the contenders’...
