“Whirlwind” Los Angeles Rams – Chiefs Game Broke Several NFL Records

The Monday Night Football matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs broke multiple NFL records.

The match, which was supposed to be played in Mexico City, finished 54 – 51 to the Los Angeles Rams.

It was the highest scoring game in Monday Night Football history. Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff described it as “four quarters of craziness.”

The end-to-end contest resulted in the Chiefs becoming the first team in NFL history to lose having scored 50 points.

The fact that it was such a spectacle will only annoy those on the Mexico City side even more. This kind of game is the reason that the NFL brings it’s product around the world.

“It was a whirlwind,” said Rams coach Sean McVay. “I feel like I might need a couple beverages to relax tonight. But it was great. This is what you love so much about the game.”

The combined 105 points was the third highest ever for an NFL game. The only games to have more points were the Washington Redskins VS the New York Giants (72 – 41) in 1966. As well as that, there was the Cincinnati Bengals VS the Cleveland Browns (58 – 48) in 2004.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw six touchdown passes. He is the first player to do this in a Monday Night game. He is also the first player with five passing touchdowns and five turnovers in a game since Gus Frerotte in 2000. Mahomes threw for 478 yards with a QB rating of 117.6, surpassing Goff who had 413 yards and a 117.1 rating.

Rams linebacker Samson Ebukam recorded a sack, and interception and multiple touchdowns. He is the first player to do this since sacks became official in 1982.
