3 teams that helped Rams in Week 9 for 2019 playoff race
By Dan Parzych
Even though the Los Angeles Rams were on a bye in Week 9, they still received some help from across the league.
With the bye week officially over the Los Angeles Rams, the team will now begin to prepare for their next tough matchup in Week 10 against a Pittsburgh Steelers team that has been heating up over the last month or so following a poor start.
But before jumping ahead to their upcoming meeting with the Steelers, the Rams should be enjoying some of the extra help they received over the weekend from teams beating other teams currently in the NFC playoff race.
As much as Los Angeles would love to finish on top of the NFC West for a third year in a row, when seeing how well the San Francisco 49ers (8-0) and Seattle Seahawks (7-2) are playing at the moment, the Rams may have to settle for a Wild Card spot.
Normally, a team like Los Angeles sitting at 5-3 would seem to have a great shot at earning a trip to the playoffs, but unfortunately if the season were to officially end today, the Rams would be watching from home since they currently sit in the No. 7 seed.
The good news for Los Angeles is since it’s only the beginning of November, there’s still plenty of time for them to earn a spot, depending on how the final eight games go for the defending NFC champions.
For now, it’s time to take a look at a few teams that happened to help the Rams in Week 9 when it comes to putting them in better position for the NFC playoff picture.
