The Los Angeles Rams can now breathe a sigh of relief after escaping Week 11 of the NFL season with a close 54-51 win over the Kansas City Chiefs at home during the two teams' Monday Night Football game. There were 56 first downs.
The Coliseum's first Monday Night Football game since 1985 was worth the wait - and if this fascinating spectacle turns out to be a Super Bowl preview, Atlanta should prepare for an All-Madden-level show from two of the most exciting teams in the league.
Goff was delighted to come away with the win and described it as a "fun game". "There were times when we thought we had the momentum and could put the knife in them and finish it and at times it was the other way around", Goff said during his post-match press conference.
Rams quarterback Jared Goff threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Gerald Everett for the go-ahead score with 1:49 to play.
105 combined points - an MNF record.
"Both teams were charged and ready to play like the playoffs".
"I was pretty wired, man", McVay said Tuesday afternoon, about 21 hours after kickoff. "I feel like I might need a couple beverages to relax tonight". "This is what you love so much about the game".
Major League Baseball trade rumors: Mets close to getting Cano, Diaz
The Seattle Mariners seem poised to upstage themselves for the biggest trade of the Major League Baseball offseason thus far. Multiple reports had the Phillies bargaining for him still all of Thursday despite the ongoing trade rumors with the Mets.
That moment was after Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner recorded a game-saving pick off of Mahomes.
"It's always fun to play against real good teams", Mahomes said. McVay and the Rams now get a holiday week to contemplate what they've accomplished and how far they've still got to go.
This will be the first "Monday Night Football" game at the Coliseum since October 28, 1985, when the Los Angeles Raiders defeated the San Diego Chargers, 34-21.
Most importantly, Los Angeles hopes to take advantage of their bye week before a Week 12 showdown with the Detroit Lions by seeing some of their key players earn some much-needed rest, one of which happens to be Todd Gurley. The Chiefs come in to Monday night giving up 289 passing yards a game, second worst in the league.
The NFL did not schedule night regular-season games for the Coliseum during the Raiders final nine seasons playing there because of fear of crime. But it is the five turnovers the Kansas City quarterback committed that led to the Chiefs dropping their second game this season.
Mahomes' 73-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill early in the fourth quarter pulled the Chiefs to within 40-37.
"It was electric", Ebukam said.
