How L.A. can Clinch a Playoff Berth in Week 15

Once again it's complicated, but the Rams can clinch their first playoff berth since 2004 in Week 15.

The scenario starts with a Rams victory over the Seahawks. That much you likely could've guessed.

But just like last week, Los Angeles will depend on a few other teams if the club is to punch its ticket to the tournament.

Other than a Rams victory, the Saints and Falcons must lose. Plus, the Packers and Lions must lose or tie.

Even though they lost last week, the Rams remain the NFC's No. 3 seed — behind the No. 1 Eagles and No. 2 Vikings.

But when it comes to this weekend's clinching scenario…

The No. 3 Rams (9-4) play the No. 7 Seahawks (8-5) on Sunday at 1:05 PT. That's also a particularly important matchup for the potential NFC West title.

The No. 8 Lions (7-6) host the Bears (4-9) on Saturday at 1:30 PT.

The No. 9 Packers (7-6) play the No. 5 Panthers (9-4) in Carolina on Sunday at 10 PT.

The No. 4 Saints (9-4) host the Jets (5-8) on Sunday at 10 PT.

And the No. 6 Falcons (8-5) play the Buccaneers (4-9) on Monday Night Football.

So, if you'd like to Rams to clinch in Week 15, you're rooting for the Bears on Saturday, the Panthers and Jets on Sunday, and the Buccaneers on Monday.

And, of course, the Rams on Sunday at CenturyLink Field.
