Los Angeles Rams: 4 reasons Week 11 against the Chiefs is big for the NFL
Monday Night Football gets to showcase two of the best young quarterback playing in the league and producing huge numbers. Sure Sunday Night Football a few weeks ago featured two veterans in Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady, and the NFL media and sports media at large swooned at the matchup. But Week 11 offers a glimpse of the future.
It’s also one deserving of a stand alone game under the bright lights of the LA Coliseum.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Rams quarterback Jared Goff are a close one-two in production with Mahomes having completed 231 passes on 345 attempts for 3150 yards and 31 touchdowns.
Goff is right there with him. He’s thrown 332 passes, completing 227 for 3134 yards and 22 touchdowns.
Not bad for either.
Already, Las Vegas has you tempted to head to the betting window and take the over of 63.5 points, the highest ever in NFL history.
With the Chiefs being the highest scoring team in the league, followed by the Rams being the third on that list, the reasonable expectation is that fireworks are sure to happen as the defenses, especially LA’s try to keep up.
Monday night will be an opportunity for both Mahomes and Goff to get some prime-time love with no other games to worry about. It’s also a chance for fans and the NFL sports media to see what the future of the league will look like beyond Rodgers and Brady.
