Thanks to some shifts in the schedule over the past couple of years, the NFL has truly made the end of the regular season a spectacle. With so many divisional battles stuffed into the final quarter of the season, there are essentially no “locks” for division crowns. Depending on how “believeable” you want to be in your argument, you could make the case that only 10-12 teams are genuinely out of the hunt, particularly with the NFC South being led by franchise currently sitting at 4-6 on the season. The St. Louis Rams narrowly make it into those 20-22 remaining teams, but would need a lot of help to sneak into the January dance.

As it currently sits, the St. Louis Rams are sitting in the No.12 spot in the NFC. In order to jump up the ranks into the No.6 spot, they will need to not only “run the table” through the rest of their schedule, but hope that some other teams can pull off some upsets. Here is your cheering guide for Week 12.

Titans over Eagles

Eagles are currently in the lead for the NFC East crown, but, ironically, appear to be more of a liability than the Dallas Cowboys. Mark Sanchez has certainly shown a propensity to implode in the past, which is precisely what the Rams will need to overtake a team that already has seven wins on the season, including the tie-breaker.

Packers over Vikings

The Packers are arguably the best team in the NFC right now, and will undoubtedly unseed the Detroit Lions for the top spot in the NFC North. They also happen to play the Minnesota Vikings, who are currently ranked ahead of the Rams with a tie-breaker win in the season opener. A Green Bay win Sunday would knock the Vikings below St. Louis.

Buccaneers over Bears

The Bears are arguably the “coldest” team in the NFC, despite having arguably the best collection of offensive talent in the conference. While their pathetic defense has them sitting at 4-6 on the season, their win percentage within the conference has them currently slotted ahead of the Rams in the standings. Rams could use some help from the Bucs to fix that issue.

Cardinals over Seahawks

No one in the NFC West is going to catch the Arizona Cardinals, even with Carson Palmer on the sideline. Taking that into consideration, it would be best for the Rams to pull for Arizona to further knock-down the struggling 49ers and Seahawks. Both teams currently have a lead on the Rams in the hunt for the Wild Card.

Redskins over 49ers

As previously mentioned, every 49ers loss inches the Rams closer to hopping them in the rankings. For once, St. Louis fans should be pulling for RGIII and Co. to win on Sunday.
