There were 14 touchdowns, including three by defensive players. There were 56 first downs. There were 105 points, with 50 from each team — the first time that’s ever happened in an NFL game.
Whew! What a game.
The Rams squeaked the win with moments to spare for a 54-51 victory that left Monday Night Football fans exhausted and exhilarated. Talk about water cooler conversation on Tuesday!
“It was a crazy game, crazy game,” said Jared Goff, who threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Gerald Everett for the go-ahead score with 1:49 to play.
Goff passed for 413 yards and four touchdowns and even ran for another score.
“It seemed like whoever had the ball at the end was going to win the game,” he continued. “There was times where we felt like we were going to put the knife in and finish them, and there were times where it was the other way around, where we had to claw back into it.”
Patrick Mahomes passed for a career-high 478 yards with six touchdown passes in his latest stirring effort for the Chiefs (9-2), but he also threw two interceptions in the final 1:18 as the Rams (10-1) claimed the highest-scoring Monday night game ever played.
