The Los Angeles Rams are currently on the outside looking in for the playoffs heading into Week 11.
After suffering another tough loss last Sunday, the pressure is certainly on for the Los Angeles Rams heading into their Week 11 meeting against the Chicago Bears in order to keep things close in the NFC playoff race.
If the regular season were to officially end today, the Rams would be watching the playoffs from home, which would be viewed as a major disappointment when looking at the previous expectations surrounding the team heading into September.
Rightfully so, Los Angeles was viewed as one of the early favorites in the NFC after reaching the Super Bowl last winter, and the talent they had to work with on both sides of the football made it seem realistic to happen.
With seven games remaining in the regular season, the Rams could still end up in position to earn a trip to Miami down the road, but unfortunately the defending NFC champions face a difficult path ahead.
Between the offensive line struggling to provide the necessary protection for Jared Goff along with Todd Gurley taking an unfortunate step back with a lighter workload, there are plenty of factors that have come into play for why Los Angeles currently sits with 5-4 record.
Every game moving forward will be viewed as a must-win situation for the Rams since they’re already at a disadvantage in the current NFC playoff picture, but also Los Angeles will need some help from other teams as well.
Looking at the schedule for Week 11, here are three teams that could actually help the Rams before squaring off against the Bears Sunday night.
