Buffalo Bills Can't Put St. Louis Rams Away; Lose 15-12
USA TODAY Sports
Fred Jackson picked up a key first down on this play versus Rams.

The Buffalo Bills had the lead for the majority of the home game against the St. Louis Rams, but the Rams rallied in the final minute of regulation to win 15-12.

The game was an offensive struggle for both teams, as each squad wound up with five drives of the three-plays and out variety. St. Louis went three and out in four of its first five drives of the game, yet still won. 

Coming into this game, both teams had a losing record—the Rams (5-6-1) and the Bills (5-7)—with the loser likely being eliminated from the postseason. 

The Bills were needing help from other teams, and the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals both lost, setting the stage for the Bills to inch that much closer with a win.

As it turns out, the Rams are now 6-6-1, and the Bills fall to 5-8 and at best, can hope for a .500 record. This will mark the 13th straight season that Buffalo fails to qualify for the postseason.
