◼️ Chiefs-Rams was the first NFL game in history where both teams scored 50 points each.
On Monday, the Rams won one of the most dramatic victories in the NFL. The Los Angeles Rams beat the Chiefs 54-51 and played the game with the most points scored in a monday night football clash. The match, which was to be played at the Azteca stadium in Mexico City, was so close that it was defined in the epilogue after a pass from Jared Goff, 40 yards, which Gerald Everett converted into a touchdown.

In fact, everything was even from the first quarter, to the point that the score fluctuated from side to side in an even duel between the offenses and in which the Rams went ahead 13-0 thanks to the support of their fans (they didn’t play in the Coliseum of Los Angeles, at night, since 1985).
However, in the second quarter, Kansas City regained ground and stayed with that partial 16-0 to not only turn the game around but to generate a deep silence in the fans. The unforced errors were taken advantage of by the visitor who took charge of everything.
But that wasn’t enough to skink the Rams who regained control thanks to their offense, added a new touchdown, put the score 47-44 and went to victory. The two minute break in the last quarter was key for the Los Angeles team to add 10 wins for the first time in their 11 initial games, something that didn’t happen since 1969 and that allows them to fight for the top of the National Conference with the Saints.
