Chiefs-Rams game is now the highest-scoring Monday Night Football matchup in NFL history

Jared Goff, Patrick Mahomes

Monday Night Football’s meeting between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Rams is a true barn burner. Like two heavyweights trading blows in the middle of the ring, the Chiefs and the Rams have been executing big plays after big plays. It’s safe to say that this game has exceeded even the loftiest of expectations.

In fact, according to Jason Wilde of ESPN, the Chiefs and the Rams have now combined for the second-highest MNF game in NFL history.

This game is now the second-highest scoring Monday night game in #NFL history — second only to that #Packers-#Redskins game Oatesy covered when he was 30.

Check that. The Rams and the Chiefs have now made history by teaming up to score the most points in MNF history (and counting).

Prior to this contest, the record-holder for the most points in such a game was 95, the total the Green Bay Packers and the Washington Redskins produced in a matchup way back in 1983. That’s over 10 years earlier than the birth dates of Rams quarterback Jared Goff and Chiefs signal-caller Patrick Mahomes.

As of this writing, the two aforementioned quarterbacks have combined for 10 touchdowns with only a single interception.
