If the Chiefs/Rams bout wasn't the best Monday Night Football game ever, I would really like to know what is. Rams took it 54 - 51. That's 105 total points, the most combined points scored in any Monday Night Football game, ever. Out of 773 of them to that point.
Here are some more crazy stats from the game:
1001 total combined yards (891 passing) in the game. 14 total touchdowns. 56 first downs.
Goff went 31/49 for 413 yards and 4 TDs. Zero picks. Passer rating of 117.1.
Mahomes went 33/46 for 478 yards, 6 TDs and 3 picks.
Of any team in the history of the NFL to score at least 50 points, they all won, 216-0. So Chiefs made history in a bad way there.
This game was the 3rd highest combined points scored in ANY NFL game, ever.
What's even more impressive to me though is this game didn't come out of nowhere. Everyone expected and hoped this would happen, though most didn't think it would be this high scoring. Both of these teams were 9-1 going in and 2 of the best 3 teams overall in the league. It was billed as the 'game of the year' even before kickoff. So that just makes it all the more interesting to me that it surpassed the hype.
Usually these games settle into a surprisingly low to middle of the road scoring defensive battle, and become something of a letdown. But even though this was an offensive scoring fest, you still had 3 defensive scores and some really big picks and turnovers being made. So it wasn't that each team just laid up on defense either.
Curious if you think another MNF games bests this one. If you didn't have a chance to watch the game, or just want to watch the highlights, here you go:
