Week 11 - highest scoring game of all time
On a Monday evening last November, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, a pair of 9-1 teams faced off in what became an instant classic – the first game in NFL history that both teams scored over 50 points. The contest, between the Rams and Chiefs, had initially been scheduled for Mexico City, but the poor condition of the Azteca Stadium surface led to a last-minute venue change. Whether those circumstances factored into what transpired is uncertain, but the offensive barrage was staggering: 14 combined touchdowns, 105 total points, and four lead changes in the fourth quarter alone. The score was 23-23 at halftime, and 40-30, Rams, after three quarters. The game’s wackiness could be summed up in the performance of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who threw for 478 yards and six touchdowns – but whose two interceptions in the final two minutes were costly. Rams QB Jared Goff, who threw for 413 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions, tossed the game-winner with 1:49 left, a 40-yard pass to Gerald Everett, to produce the eye-popping final score: 54-51, Los Angeles.
