Last night’s MNF Game was an instant classic.
If you missed last night’s Monday Night Football game between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs then you may have missed the greatest football game ever played and I’m not overhyping it what so ever. The Rams took home the win in Los Angeles 54-51, but there’s a good chance we see these two teams go at it again in the Super Bowl, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
The future of the NFL was on full display with two of the best offensive minds in the game, two of the best young quarterbacks in the league, offensive weapons all over the field, surprisingly good defensive play and the most important part, a combined 105 points, yes, 105 points.
Potential MVP Patrick Mahomes went 33-46 for 478 yards and SIX touchdowns while completing ten of those passes to Tyreek Hill for 215 yards and two touchdowns.
For the Rams, Jared Goff quietly went 31-49 for 413 yards, four touchdowns, and one rushing touchdown, completing eight passes to Brandin Cooks for 107 yards.
According to ESPN, this was a game of first on so many levels. It was the first game in NFL history where both teams scored more than 50 points and Patrick Mahomes’ six touchdown passes were the most ever showcased on Monday Night Football and there were over 1,000 yards of offense between the two, 1,001 to be exact.
There were six lead changes in the whole game with four in the fourth quarter alone. Roger Goodell is getting exactly what he wants. If all of you NFL fans were wondering why we’ve been seeing all of the rule changes that benefit the offense, this is exactly why. The NFL wants big points, tons of yards and no defense, and here you have it.
Fortunately for this game, there were spurts of defense shown from both teams, which is good, but all in all, there wasn’t all that much good consistent defense being played.
I’m going to leave a highlight reel of the game below, but trust me when I say, it doesn’t NOT do the game justice by any means.
