The Rams' remaining opponents were a combined 21-34 this season heading in Sunday, tying them for the easiest remaining strength of schedule in the league.

Chargers (5-6), 10. Raiders (5-6). Buffalo still has the best chance. Cincinnati doesn't have a division outlet. Los Angeles' and Oakland's best bets are winning the West. Who's barely alive: 11. Jets (4-7), 12. Dolphins (4-7), 13. Texans (4-7), 14. Colts (3-8), 15. Broncos (3-8). New York and Miami have been free-falling for a while. Houston joined them on Monday night.

What's left: vs. BAL, vs. NE, at HOU, vs. CLE No. 2 seed — Patriots (10-2): First place, AFC East. New England ran all over Buffalo and ended up keeping pace with Pittsburgh.

Tennessee knocked off Houston at home to stay in first place over Jacksonville thanks to an early head-to-head win. The division is still headed to a Week 17 de facto title game.

The Chiefs have the three-way tiebreaker between them, the Chargers and the Raiders to barely stay here before playing both teams in the next two weeks.

NFCNo. 1 seed — Vikings (10-2): First place, NFC North. Minnesota kept rolling with a strong defensive effort in Atlanta and put itself on the verge of winning the division. It also jumped over Philiadelphia with a better strength of victory. What's left: at CAR, vs. CIN, at GB, vs. CHI No. 2 seed — Eagles (10-2): First place, NFC East. Philadelphia finally saw its losing streak end in Seattle and dropped here in the process. It also kept victorious Dallas barely alive in the division race.

What's left: vs. PHI, at SEA, at TEN, vs. SF No. 4 seed — Saints (9-4): First place, NFC South. New Orleans lost a tough one in Atlanta to open Week 14 on Thursday night. The Saints are guaranteed to lose more ground vs. other NFC conteners, with the Eagles playing the Rams and the Vikings playing the Panthers. What's left: vs. NYJ, vs. ATL, at TB No. 5 seed — Seahawks (8-4): Second place, NFC West. Seattle's win over Philadelphia was huge, because it helped the Seahawks keep pace with Los Angeles in the division and also strengthened their wild-card position over both losing Carolina and Atlanta. What's left: at JAX, vs. LAR, at DAL, vs. ARI No. 6 seed — Panthers (8-4): Second place, NFC South. Carolina's loss at New Orleans makes it tough to win the division now. With No. 1, No. 9 and No. 7 still on the schedule, falling back on this wild card is far from a given. What's left: vs. MIN, vs. GB, vs. TB, at ATL Who's right behind: 7. Falcons (8-5), 8. Lions (6-6), 9. Packers (6-6), 10. Cowboys (6-6). Atlanta got a huge win to open Week 14, putting pressure on Seattle and Carolina in tough Sunday games.

NFL Week 17 Recap — Playoff Slots Were Filled; Coaches Were Fired
NFL Week 17 Recap — Playoff Slots Were Filled; Coaches Were FiredJoe StudentJanuary 4, 2016Getty ImagesShare on TwitterShare on FacebookIt took until the last play of the NFL’s 2015 regular season, but the playoff field is finally set. Here’s a recap of the action from NFL Week 17: Peyton Manning Led The Broncos To The AFC’s No. 1 SeedGetty ImagesPeyton Manning replaced Brock Osweiler in the second half and led Denver to 20 points in 1 1/2 quarters, as the Broncos beat the San Diego Chargers 27-20 on Sunday. With the victory — and New England’s 20-10 loss to Miami earlier in the day — Denver (12-4) earned the AFC’s top seed and home-field advantage through the AFC playoffs. San Diego (4-12) victimized the Broncos for five turnovers while Osweiler was under center, giving coach Gary Kubiak reason to make the change to Manning. The future Hall of Fame quarterback threw for just 69 yards in his first action since suffering a left foot injury seven weeks ago, but he added enough spark to help Denver win a fifth consecutive AFC West crown. Cam Newton ran for two scores and passed for two other touchdowns, and the Carolina Panthers routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-10, on Sunday in Charlotte. Carolina (15-1) secured home-field advantage through the NFC playoffs for the first time in team history. The Panthers vaunted defense intercepted Jameis Winston twice on its way to dropping Tampa Bay (6-10) to another 10-loss season — their third consecutive such campaign. Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes, and the Seattle Seahawks snapped the Arizona Cardinals’ nine-game winning streak with a 36-6 trouncing on Sunday. Heading into the game, Arizona (13-3) still had a chance to be the No. 1 seed in the NFC, but instead Seattle (10-6) showed that they might be good enough to make a third consecutive Super Bowl run. As the No. 6 seed, the Seahawks will play at third-seeded Minnesota in the wild-card round next weekend. The Vikings defeated the Packers for the NFC North title on Sunday. The second-seeded Cardinals have a bye into the divisional round. The NFC North Title Came Down To The Last Play Of The SeasonGetty ImagesAdrian Peterson ran for 67 yards with a touchdown, and the Minnesota Vikings held on to beat the Green Bay Packers, 20-13, on Sunday night at Lambeau Field. Green Bay (10-6) had a chance to tie the game on the final play, but Aaron Rodgers’ pass into the end zone was knocked away by the defense. Minnesota (11-5) won their first division title since 2009. They’ll host Seattle in the wild-card round of the playoffs next Sunday. The Seahawks drubbed the Vikings, 38-7, on Dec. 6. Rodgers passed for 291 yards with a touchdown and an interception, but Minnesota held the Packers potent offense to just three points prior to the fourth quarter. Fifth-seeded Green Bay will travel to Washington to face the NFC East champion Redskins next Sunday. Rex Ryan & The Bills Helped The Steelers Make The PlayoffsGetty ImagesBen Roethlisberger threw for 349 yards and three touchdowns, and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cleveland Browns, 28-12, on Sunday. Thanks to Rex Ryan’s Buffalo Bills beating the New York Jets, 22-17, Pittsburgh (10-6) claimed the second AFC wild card spot. The Steelers will face the AFC North champion Bengals on Saturday night in Cincinnati. The teams split their two meetings in the regular season. New York (10-6) only needed to win to clinch a postseason berth, but they were felled by Buffalo (8-8) and their former head coach Ryan. Former Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who had quarterbacked the Jets into playoff contention this season, threw interceptions on each of his team’s last three possessions of the crucial game. Cleveland (3-13) will have the second pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Browns fired head coach Mike Pettine and general manager Ray Farmer after the game. The Texans Won The AFC South With DefenseGetty ImagesJ.J. Watt had three of his team’s franchise-record eight sacks, and the Houston Texans stomped the Jacksonville Jaguars, 30-6, on Sunday. With the win, Houston (9-7) won their first AFC South title since 2012 and will host Kansas City in the AFC wild card round of the playoffs next Saturday. The Chiefs beat the Texans in Week 1. Jacksonville (5-11) couldn’t stop Watt and the Houston defense from getting to the quarterback. Meanwhile, Texans’ QB Brian Hoyer moved the ball effectively against the Jags defense. He threw for 249 yards with a touchdown and an interception. If Houston had lost, there was a distant chance that Indianapolis could have stolen the AFC South title, but it was not to be. The Colts did beat the Tennessee Titans, 30-24, on Sunday. The NFL Coaching Carousel Started Spinning Before ‘Black Monday’Getty ImagesAfter lackluster seasons punctuated with terrible on-field performances and dreadful win-loss records, the Cleveland Browns and the San Francisco 49ers each fired their respective head coaches on Sunday. Cleveland (3-13) fired head coach Mike Pettine and general manager Ray Farmer, while San Francisco (5-11) fired rookie head coach Jim Tomsula. The Browns and 49ers coaching jobs opened up a day before ‘Black Monday’ — the Monday after the NFL’s final regular season game when coaches are most often fired. The Eagles started the process early by firing head coach Chip Kelly last Tuesday. The Dolphins and the Titans each fired their head coaches earlier in the season. It’s possible that the head coaches of the Saints (Sean Payton), Giants (Tom Coughlin), Colts (Chuck Pagano), Lions (Jim Caldwell) and Chargers (Mike McCoy) might not be back in 2016. Expect plenty of ‘breaking news’ updates on those jobs on the NFL Network in the days leading up to next weekend’s playoff games.
