Heading into the 2022 NFL season, the Los Angeles Rams were a favorite to once again make waves this season. As the reigning Super Bowl Champions, analysts predicted the Rams would have another winning season, one that would set them up with the chance of making another Super Bowl run.
Unfortunately, the 2022 season has not been kind to the Rams who have taken a quick fall from grace by following up their Super Bowl season with a dismal season. Of course, the injuries of several key players including the team’s Super Bowl MVP wide receiver Cooper Kupp and its star quarterback Matthew Stafford.
Still, with each curveball the season has thrown the Rams, the team has continued to fight through adversity in order to keep their playoff dreams alive. However, with the NFL season coming to a close the playoff window is quickly closing for many teams — the Rams included.
Are the Rams out of the playoffs?
Prior to their Week 15 game against the Green Bay Packers, the Los Angeles Rams have not yet been eliminated from the 2022 playoff picture and remain in the hunt according to NFL. However, a loss tonight to the Packers is expected to knock the Rams out of the playoff picture, making tonight’s game a major one for the Rams.
Can the Rams still make the playoffs?
Technically, the Los Angeles Rams still make the playoffs but the odds of them doing so are looking incredibly slim. This is because the Rams head into their Week 15 matchup with a record of 4-9 and would need to win out and get a lot of help in losses from a number of teams just to keep their playoff dreams alive. A win in Week 15 over the Packers will be key to keeping their playoff dreams alive.
Do the Los Angeles Rams still have a chance for the playoffs?
The Los Angeles Rams do still have a chance of making the playoffs, though it is a relatively small chance. Even with a win over the Packers in Week 15, The New York Times gives the Rams a 1% chance of making it into the postseason due to the number of events that would need to occur for the team to do so. While we’ve learned to never say never when it comes to playoff odds in the NFL, we’re not anticipating the Rams will be heading into the postseason this year.
