The Los Angeles Rams host the Kansas City Chiefs in what could be a Super Bowl preview on Monday Night Football in front of a national audience.
The Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs are giving the fans what could be the game of the year on Monday night as the 9-1 Rams host the 9-1 Chiefs. These are not two ordinary 9-1 teams, these are two offensive juggernauts that have struggled defensively.
This game is going to be electric. There are going to be a ton of points put on the board and the winner of this game is going to leave with serious bragging rights.
Even before the opening kickoff, this game has already been filled with drama. Originally, the game was going to take place in Mexico City. However, due to poor field conditions, the Rams will host the Chiefs under the bright LA lights.
All of us here at LA Sports Hub is going to be watching and we are sure you will be too. Here is how we see the game panning out.
Jamaal Artis (13-1): 41-31, Kansas City Chiefs
Not being pessimistic but the way the Rams defense has been playing, especially in the secondary, makes me think that despite the home game now in LA and not Mexico, they lose to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Lamarr Fields (12-4): 48-48 TIE
I have this game being a shootout. I expect that both offenses will put up big numbers. I think the Rams will use Todd Gurley to help control the clock to keep the KC offense on the sideline.
Even with that happening, the Chiefs will put up points. Patrick Mahomes has been great this season and the Rams will need to get pressure on him to slow him down. This game will come down to who will have the ball last.
(I do not really know how to judge this one. I will give Lamarr two wins if this really ends in a tie.)
Redan Lopez (11-3): 38-35, Los Angeles Rams
The game features two of the best offenses in the league. There’s plenty of star power to go around. I’m looking for the offenses to steal the show with each one matching the other stride for stride down the field.
Both Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Rams Quarterback Jared Goff should have monster games with over 300 yards and three touchdowns each. In the end, the Rams will pull out a win on a last minute Greg Zuerlein field goal.
Jason Reed (15-2): 30-26, Los Angeles Rams
While I do think there will be some fun offense in this game, I do not think is it going to be this out of the world scoring affair in which both teams score at ease. The Rams are going to play smart and control the clock and the home-field advantage will naturally keep the Chiefs from scoring on every drive.
Both teams are insane on offense and this game will come down to who can make the big stop when it matters most. While the Rams defense has not been great this season, it is simply better from a pure talent standpoint and should be able to give Mahomes at least somewhat of a headache.
I think Mahomes gets the ball with around two minutes to play for the win. While the Chiefs will drive down and knock on the door of the end zone, the Rams will get that final big stop.
