Back-to-back upset losses to Tennessee and San Francisco haven't just snuffed out Matthew Stafford's MVP campaign. They have also put the rest of the Rams' regular season on the verge of irrelevance. They're now a game and a half back of Arizona in the NFC West and have already lost a head-to-head matchup to the Cardinals, but a game and a half ahead of New Orleans in the wild-card standings. In short, you're probably looking at the top wild-card team in the conference. Our playoff odds give L.A. a better-than-40% shot at landing the No. 5 seed in the playoffs, the highest probability of any NFC team winning any specific seed. The Week 14 Monday night game against the Cardinals in Arizona could be their last chance to improve their standings. There are worse fates in life than being the 5 seed, by the way. The Buccaneers were the 5 seed last year, and they went on to win the Super Bowl. –- Vincent Verhei
