The 2004 St. Louis Rams season was the team's 67th year with the National Football League and the tenth season in St. Louis.

Although the Rams's record was good enough to qualify for the postseason, they did so without posting a winning record. Statistics site Football Outsiders calculates that the 2004 Rams were, play-for-play, the worst team to make the playoffs in the site's rating history.[1]
