Monday night's game marks the third-highest scoring game in NFL history and highest scoring Monday night game, as the Chiefs became the first team to score at least 50 points in a loss. Patrick Mahomes, who is very familiar to a game like this, threw for 478 yards and six touchdowns, but his Chiefs dropped their second game of the season. He also lost a historic high-scoring affair while at Texas Tech against Baker Mayfield and Oklahoma. This game brought many flashbacks to that college contest.
Goff's game-winning touchdown pass was his fourth of the day, as he threw for 413 yards, helping overcome Todd Gurley's slow game. The star running back did not find the end zone for the first time in 14 games, as he ran for just 55 yards on 12 carries. Kareem Hunt was also quiet in the backfield for the Chiefs, totaling 70 yards on 14 carries.
Mahomes' yards and touchdowns total were both career highs, but his two interceptions in the final 1:18 sealed the road loss for Kansas City. Both of their losses have come in high-profile road contests, as they also fell to the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football.
In a game full of offense, the Rams' five forced turnovers proved to be the difference, including Marcus Peters haunting his former team with an interception of Mahomes. Los Angeles now sits at 10-1 as they move on to visit the Detroit Lions on December 2nd. Meanwhile, the Chiefs hold just a one-game lead on the Los Angeles Chargers in the AFC West, as they will visit the lowly Oakland Raiders on the 2nd of December.
