Hey Ugo Amadi Jersey
, Vegas, good try. the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams scoffed at the limitations oddsmakers insinuated the 2nd and 3rd highest scoring offenses would face. Heck, even the defenses were pounding the over.Each possession— nay, each play— seemed poised to finish in points with the final whistle being the only instrument capable of stopping the revolving scoreboard.Each team operated as advertised from the get-go: the Rams methodically driving and taking deep shots where warranted; the Chiefs using as few plays as necessary to march down field. Kansas City only had the ball for 4:14 in the first quarter, and yet Dwayne Haskins Jersey
, it was a 13-7 game.Then the action took off.Of the first 22 possessions of the game— including a one play kneel heading into halftime— 15 resulted in points: nine offensive touchdowns, three defensive touchdowns and a trio of field goals. Another ended in a Jared Goff strip sack the Chiefs needed only one play to take advantage of courtesy of a 21-yard Patrick Mahomes to Kareem Hunt touchdown. Keeping track? Tack on another KC fumble and that’s four combined punts though 3+ quarters.So what about that “+” quarter?Jared Goff threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Gerald Everett for the go-ahead score with 1:49 left on the clock, putting the Rams up 54-51.Patrick Mahomes, who had two opportunities to answer back, saw his career-high 478 yard, six touchdown night go to waste. Mahomes tossed two interceptions in the final 1:18 as the Rams (10-1) claimed the highest-scoring Monday night game ever played and the first NFL game with two 50-point performances.Goff passed for 413 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for another score David Long Jersey
, while Marcus Peters— a former Chief traded to LA this offseason– and Lamarcus Joyner came up with game-sealing interceptions as the Rams hung on to win a game featuring 14 touchdowns.The highest-scoring game in the league this season was an offensive fantasia with 1,001 combined yards and ingenious scheming from mastermind coaches Andy Reid and Sean McVay — along with three defensive touchdowns and 21 combined penalties.“It was a whirlwind,” McVay said. “I feel like I might need a couple of beverages to relax tonight, but it was great. This is what you love so much about the game.”Defense wins 50 point games?Rams linebacker Samson Ebukam returned a fumble and an interception for the first two TDs of his NFL career, including a one-armed interception at the line of scrimmage he returned 25 yards for a score, powering over Mahomes to reach the end zone. Aaron Donald http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/bobby-evans-jersey
, who stripped Mahomes twice, joked afterward he has never scored a touchdown and it wasn’t fair Ebukam got two in one game.There were 59 points scored in the second half alone.“It was a 16-round fight,” Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman said. “You’re talking about a Mike Tyson-Lennox Lewis type of fight. Two great teams. Two great opponents. Two great coaches.”If the Coliseum’s first Monday night game since 1985 proves to be a prelude to a Super Bowl showdown in Atlanta, Vegas may want to look further back than 1986 for an over/under precedent before setting the line in February. The Los Angeles Chargers could see tight end Hunter Henry return to the lineup as soon as this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens after missing the entire regular season while recovering from a torn ACL. While Henry’s return could provide a big boost to the Chargers this postseason, head coach Anthony Lynn said they need to make sure Henry is truly ready and able to contribute before they give him the green light.“We want to give a good look at him this week to see where he’s at,” Lynn said Greg Gaines Jersey
, via Eric Williams of ESPN.com. “I like the progress that he’s been making, but he hasn’t played football for a long time — since last December … so it’s been a while. He’s going to need to really show us that he’s ready [to play].“I believe that the knee is stable. We did some things last week and thought he looked really good. Now, it’s just about conditioning, the chemistry with the offense and just playing football.”Henry torn the ACL in his right knee during offseason practices in May. Henry is just over seven months removed from the injury and has been practicing with the Chargers for the last two weeks. The team has until Monday to add him to their active roster or his season will come to an end with the expiration of his 21-day practice window on the physically unable to perform list.The Chargers have Virgil Green and Antonio Gates available at tight end to continue to carry the load until Henry is ready to play. Even if he can’t play this week against the Baltimore Ravens, the Chargers can carry him on their active roster until he’s conditioned enough to contribute, assuming the Chargers are able to advance.Henry has caught 81 passes for 1 Christian Wilkins Jersey
,057 yards and 12 touchdowns in two seasons with the Chargers.
