What it means: Now sitting at 5-7 on the season, any flicker of playoff hope the Rams had has essentially vanished in the competitive NFC. They're a full three games behind San Francisco for the No. 6 spot in the conference and still trail a handful of other teams just to get into the mix. Any reasonable person wouldn't have expected the Rams to win their final six to get into the playoff hunt but at least now those dreams can be put to bed.
