Rams legend Kurt Warner ‘would love to play’ in Sean McVay’s system
After putting up great numbers and earning his first Pro Bowl bid, Jared Goff went from being called a bust to a “system quarterback.” Even early in the 2018 campaign, there were folks pegging Goff as a product of Sean McVay’s scheme.
He’s done everything possible to disprove that notion to the tune of 22 touchdown passes and six interceptions, but some things are impossible to change people’s minds on. After all, even Nathan Peterman could be a Pro Bowler in McVay’s system, right? No, not exactly.

Alexander: Rams-Chiefs was played where it belonged – Orange County Register
LOS ANGELES — Really, this game should have been scheduled here all along.
It was a confluence of events that turned Monday night’s Rams-Chiefs game into something that went way beyond football, even way beyond the idea of two of the NFL’s two best teams having it out on the Monday night stage.
“This represents the best of Los Angeles and the best of the NFL and how it brings people together,” said Rams executive vice president of football operations Kevin Demoff.

Fans loved Rams-Chiefs 'Monday Night Football' instant classic | Larry Brown Sports
The heavily-anticipated “Monday Night Football” matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams lived up to the expectations and even surpassed them. The teams ping-ponged back-and-forth, trading touchdowns and leads, with the Rams eventually prevailing 54-51 thanks to consecutive interceptions on Kansas City’s final two possessions. The displays of offense were ridiculous and everything fans could have asked for, as the game turned into a real-life version of “Madden.”
The teams combined to score 105 points (3rd-most ever) and gained over 1,000 yards. The two quarterbacks combined to throw 10 touchdown passes. This was the first time in NFL history both teams scored over 50 points in the same game. It was also the highest-scoring “Monday Night Football” game in history. And despite all that, there were some great defensive plays made between Aaron Donald, Chris Jones and Samson Ebukam.

The Chiefs and Rams Gave Us Football at its Most Insane and Glorious | The Big Lead
The anticipated showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams managed to exceed all possibilities. The highest Over of all-time didn’t stand a chance, and was left far behind as the teams continued to score, shooting past Aaron Donald’s famous 99. The Chiefs put up 51 points and it wasn’t enough. That makes it the first game ever to have a losing team score 50+ points.
It wasn’t just the offenses though. The defenses were under constant pressure, and made many impactful plays. The Rams scored twice on defense, and got the big turnovers at the end to survive. The Chiefs got a defensive score, hit Jared Goff repeatedly. They didn’t get the key turnover, though, when Orlando Scandrick dropped his chance to be the hero.

Did the Rams and Chiefs show the NFL’s offensive future? Not so fast… | Touchdown Wire
...After Monday night’s 54-51 barnburner in which the Rams outlasted the Chiefs, there have been many breathless treatises about how these two teams represent the future of the league and the game. It’s a 7-on-7 league, we’re told. Defense is dead, we read. Everything is now different, and the NFL we knew is no more, we are asked to believe.
And while that may be true when you’re playing the Rams or the Chiefs (or certainly the Saints), to automatically assume that every NFL team will have the same marriage of scheme and personnel is to ignore football history to a spectacular degree...

Rams Jared Goff proved he can duel with any QB, even in a rematch with Drew Brees - Los Angeles Rams Blog- ESPN
LOS ANGELES -- Jared Goff appeared calm, though the Los Angeles Rams quarterback had every reason not to be.
The Rams trailed the Kansas City Chiefs by four points, with less than two minutes remaining in a Monday Night Football showdown in front of a raucous crowd at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
But there stood Goff in the shotgun formation at the Chiefs’ 40-yard line, cool as could be.
Goff took the snap, made a quick drop and then delivered a 40-yard strike to tight end Gerald Everett, who slipped a tackle and tightroped his way into the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown in the Rams’ 54-51 victory.

Rams-Chiefs was the all-time classic everyone hoped for, and then some
You wanted points? You wanted lead changes? You wanted defensive touchdowns? Well, you probably didn’t ask for that last one, but you got three of them anyway, because why not?
Coming into Monday night, everyone expected a high-scoring affair between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs. The over/under was the highest ever at 63.5 points, each team was averaging more than 33 points per game and there were three legitimate MVP candidates on the field.
No regular season game in recent memory had higher expectations than this one, and yet somehow, it exceeded every hope of fans across the country. It was truly an all-time classic – one we’ll remember as one of the best games in NFL history.
The Rams escaped the Coliseum with a 54-51 win, nearly covering the largest over/under in NFL history by themselves. Jared Goff threw for 413 yards and four touchdown passes with a rating of 117.1, yet none of those numbers were the best in the game; Patrick Mahomes topped him in each category.

Los Angeles Rams, Kansas City Chiefs combine for record night on MNF
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.

LA Rams vs. Kansas City Chiefs: Report card hands out grades - Turf Show Times
There are no words to describe the Monday Night Football instant classic. Only grades.
Los Angeles Rams fans are finally feeling the euphoria of a Jared Goff 4th quarter comeback with the world watching and it was spectacular — the highest scoring Monday Night Football game of all time. For a regular season game, it was hard to ask for more. And how about the LA fans? They were loud and fantastic.
So, while you’re finishing off your tequila or whatever you’re taking to calm those beautiful nerves, here are some grades.
Was QB Jared Goff perfect? Did he need his receivers to bail him out at times? Did he struggle with the pressure at times? Yes, yes, and yes (Goff was sacked 5 times and fumbled the ball twice). However, King Goffrey didn’t throw an interception and stepped up enough to play the hero at the end of the game. His final stats were pretty gaudy as well: 31 for 49 with 413 yards and 4 touchdowns. Some fans may want to dock him for the fumbles and some missed throws, but Goff came through and played the hero. A signature win for our system QB.

Key takeaways from the Rams’ thrilling win over the Chiefs
1. Aaron Donald is the best player in the league
Aaron Donald isn’t just the best defensive player in the league. He’s the best player in the league. It could realistically be argued that the Rams could’ve won the game with a different quarterback. That’s not to say Jared Goff wasn’t great, but you could make the argument. Without Donald, the Rams don’t win that game and it would be impossible to argue otherwise.
Replace Donald with even a very good defensive lineman – even another All-Pro – and the Rams don’t win this game. Donald was dominant, and single-handedly helped put 14 points on the board. He did all this while being held virtually the entire night, and made life miserable for Chiefs guard Cameron Erving.
Donald is well on his way to winning a second straight Defensive Player of the Year Award, and if it weren’t for the incredible years a few quarterbacks are having, would be right in the thick of the MVP race.

Watch: Sean McVay hands out game balls after Rams’ win
After three hours and 45 minutes of back-and-forth football, the Los Angeles Rams finally pulled away just enough to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 54-51 in what was the highest-scoring game ever on Monday Night Football.
The win was sealed by Lamarcus Joyner’s interception, the second straight drive by the Chiefs that ended in a pick thrown by Patrick Mahomes. Sean McVay may have been the most excited person on the field after that play, letting all his excitement pour out.
In the locker room after things settled down a bit, McVay was still running hot – in a good way, of course. He handed out game balls to a number of players, including Samson Ebukam and Jared Goff.
Take a look...
Marcus Peters came up big with a huge interception, earning a game ball. His former Chiefs teammate Ramik Wilson also got one, too, as did Gerald Everett. It was a complete team effort, but McVay wanted to highlight the jobs those players did – even if Wilson wasn’t a starter.

LA Rams versus KC Chiefs: Stock up, stock down - Turf Show Times
Stock Up
DT Aaron Donald
Forget the Defensive Player of the Year award. Is it time to start talking about AD as a potential Most Valuable Player candidate? The man simply cannot be contained. In a more “quiet” game, AD registered two sacks which both turned out to be strip-sacks and recoveries for the Rams. Donald is now up to 14.5 sacks on the season and looks primed to beat the defensive tackle single-season sack record of 18 sacks.

7 craziest stats from Rams’ 54-51 win vs. Chiefs
The Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs treated fans to an absolute thriller on Monday night at the Coliseum, one of the best games in NFL history, if not the very best. It was back-and-forth all night with countless lead changes, defensive touchdowns and 105 total points.
They blew by the highest over/under ever (63.5) in the third quarter, topping the mark by almost 42 points. There are so many things that made this a historic game, so we’ll list seven of the craziest stats to come out of Monday night’s epic shootout.
Only game in NFL history with two 50-point performances
There were 14 total touchdowns and 1,001 yards, equating to the final score of 54-51. Believe it or not, but this was the first time in NFL history that both teams scored at least 50 points. Reaching 50 is crazy for one team to do in a single game, but it’s unheard of for both to score that many, as we saw on Monday night.

Los Angeles Rams 54, Kansas City Chiefs 51 game recap: For all time - Turf Show Times
An unbelievable game.
Forget the analysis. Forget the historic scoring total. Or QB Jared Goff marshaling the offense down the field to win the game or the stop.
Just revel in the perfection of this.
The Los Angeles Rams won a historic game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football in LA with the NFL world watching and reveling in just how fantastic this was.
This was it, yall. This was a perfect night. A perfect exhibition of LA Rams football. Of football.
Of just everything.
It all came together.
No, it wasn’t a spectacular game from Goff. He missed a ton of throws. But the Rams persevered.
RB Todd Gurley was absent for most of the night; I’d expect we’re going to hear about some kind of injury that hampered him throughout. But the Rams persevered.
The Rams gave up 532 total yards and six passing touchdowns to Chiefs QB Pat Mahomes.
But the Rams persevered.
It wasn’t a perfect performance. But for a night, everything was perfect.
And that’s pretty damn cool with me.
