The Los Angeles Rams came back from behind to beat the Baltimore Ravens, 20-19, in Week 17.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford hit wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. for the go-ahead touchdown with just under a minute to play, and then the Rams' defense shut the door on the Ravens to end the game.

Baltimore is now in grave danger of missing the playoffs at 8-7 with a Week 18 home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers looming. Los Angeles will stay in front of the Arizona Cardinals for the lead in the NFC West for another week, potentially clinching based on the Cardinals' Week 17 result. The Rams host the San Francisco 49ers in Week 18.
