Every NFC West Team’s Division Title Winning Situations After Week 16

The Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals are the remaining teams in the NFC West title picture. Here are the tough situations for both teams.

Week 16 is in the books for both Los Angeles Rams and the Arizona Cardinals. The Rams earned a playoff spot after a 30-23 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Even though the Cardinals lost to the Indianapolis Colts 22-16 at Christmas, the Cardinals still earned a spot for the season after being lost by the San Francisco 49ers and Vikings.

The Cardinals and the Rams were the only NFC West team to compete for the title. Here are the tough situations for both teams.

How Rams Can Win NFC West

Based on the New York Times‘playoff path simulator’, the Rams have a 75 percent chance of winning the split after Week 16.

Los Angeles takes on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17 and the 49ers in Week 18. The easiest route to the NFC West title is for the Rams to win both of those games. But if they win only one of the remaining two games, they’ll still split the star as long as Arizona loses one of the last two games of the year. If the Rams lose one of their games and the Cardinals win both, they receive a Wild Card seed.

How the Cardinals Can Win NFC West

The Cardinals have about a 25% chance of winning the division after Week 16, according to the New York Times playoff path simulator.

Arizona has two important games with the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17 and the Seahawks in Week 18. The Cardinals couldn’t lose any of those competitions. Once they do, their championship chances will be gone as the Rams pick up a win in the past two weeks.

So the Cardinals need to beat the Cowboys and Seahawks, while the Rams lose to either the Ravens or the 49ers to claim the division.
