The Los Angeles Rams defeated the Cleveland Browns in Week 13, 36-19, capping off the win with a safety. With the loss, the Browns move to 7-5, tied with the Steelers, Texans, and Colts in the AFC. The Rams’ win moves them to 6-6, tied with the Vikings and Seahawks in the NFC.

The Browns are now tied with the Steelers for second place in the AFC North, and the Rams are tied with Seattle for second place in the NFC West. With the win, the Rams inched into the playoff picture and now sit at the current seventh seed spot. The Browns, on the other hand, dropped to the seventh seed spot in the AFC and risk falling out of the playoff picture.

The Browns take on the Jaguars in Week 14, and a win against Jacksonville would be a major factor in their playoff chances. The Rams will face the Ravens.
