The epic Monday Night Football battle between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs from the 2018 season took home Best Game honors at this year’s ESPYS.

As the Los Angeles Rams continue to prepare for the start of training camp in a few weeks, there was some excitement this week surrounding the team with the ESPYS taking place on Wednesday.

While players like Aaron Donald and Todd Gurley were up for individual awards, the Rams rightfully felt confident in taking home the honors for the Best Game category since their 2018 meeting with the Kansas City Chiefs turned out to be a classic.

In fact, some football fans will even make the case that Los Angeles defeating Kansas City 54-51 during this epic Week 11 battle deserves to be considered the greatest Monday Night Football battle of all time.

Sure, the other nominations (LSU vs. Texas A&M in college football and Notre Dame vs. UConn in woman’s college basketball) certainly seemed worthy of winning Best Game honors, but also the Rams-Chiefs battle was on a whole new level.

So when Los Angeles did end up winning Best Game at the ESPYS for their Week 11 win over Kansas City, this really wasn’t that much of a surprise at all.

This thrilling game alone was the main reason why there was so much hope for a Super Bowl 53 battle between the Rams and Chiefs since one could only imagine what these two teams would have done for an encore presentation.

From combining for 105 points to the five touchdowns scored in the fourth quarter alone in Week 11 last season, maybe football fans will get lucky enough to see Los Angeles and Kansas City find a way to meet in Miami this time around for Super Bowl 54.

Not to mention, Jared Goff himself put together a career performance in this win over the Chiefs after throwing for 413 yards to go along with five total touchdowns (one rushing).

Topping the numbers from their meeting during the 2018 season may be difficult if the Rams and Chiefs were to somehow meet again this season with a Super Bowl on the line, but that’s not going to stop football fans from dreaming about this scenario.

But before jumping that far ahead, here’s to hoping that training camp goes well for Los Angeles since all eyes will be on the health of Gurley after months of trying to figure out what exactly is going on with his knee.
