Rams, Chiefs combine for record night on MNF
2:07 AM ET
A game that Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff fittingly called “four quarters of craziness” earned multiple entries in the NFL record book as the Rams won an epic battle with the Kansas City Chiefs 54-51.
The highest-scoring game in Monday Night Football history saw a back-and-forth battle that ended with the Chiefs becoming the first team in NFL history to score 50 or more points and lose.
The 105 combined points — which blew past the lofty over-under of 64 set by sportsbooks — was the third-highest total ever for an NFL game, surpassed only by the Washington Redskins over the New York Giants 72-41 in 1966, and the Cincinnati Bengals over the Cleveland Browns 58-48 in 2004.
In a game that was supposed to be all about offense, the Rams and Chiefs combined for three defensive touchdowns on Monday Night Football, led by outside linebacker Samson Ebukam’s fumble recovery and interception, both returned for TDs, for L.A.
Patrick Mahomes threw for a career-high 478 yards and a Monday Night Football record six touchdowns, but he lost two fumbles and threw three INTs.
