Back in 2018, the Rams were set to take on the Chiefs at Mexico City at Estadio Azteca. However, due to poor field conditions, the game was moved to Los Angeles. Regardless of where they played, the game became one of the best spectacles in recent memory.
Coming into the game, the Rams and Chiefs were both 9-1 and had their sights on the No. 1 seed in their respective conferences. At the same time, both teams boasted high-octane offenses led by young quarterbacks in Jared Goff and Patrick Mahomes.
From the moment the game kicked off, it became a back-and-forth contest. The two quarterbacks would combine for 891 passing yards, 11 total touchdowns, and three interceptions. In the end, it would be Goff that would emerge victorious as the Rams would supplant the Chiefs 54-51.
Despite some fans saying there was no defense played, there were three defensive touchdowns scored in the high-scoring affair. With 105 points being scored between both teams, it became the third highest-scoring game of all-time.
There hasn’t been much to watch in the sports variety while the coronavirus situation has been going on. But on Monday, Rams fans will be delighted to relive the moment of the Rams taking down the Chiefs once again on Monday Night Football.
