Good news everyone. The St. Louis Rams can still make the playoffs. Yes, the numbers are out there for magic to happen, and all it would take is for the cooperation of several NFC teams and a six-game winning streak. So, how exactly could the Rams do it?

I'll refer you to Jon Bois at SB Nation NFL for the specific details on how the Rams could make the postseason for the first time since 2004.

Just how likely is it in mathematical terms for the stars to align and the Rams to make the playoffs? The whole thing has less than a 0.1 percent chance of happening, which is probably an important lesson in NFL existentialism, controlling your own destiny and all that jazz.

If it is going to happen, it has to happen this week. The San Francisco 49ers can clinch a playoff spot with a win against Baltimore this week.
