With the game going back and forth, each offense delivering a scoring punch and the Rams up 30-40 heading into the 4th quarter, fans had to imagine more of the same shall continue in the final 15 minutes of this stellar matchup. And boy, both teams did not disappoint, as both teams scored 35 points in the 4th, as the Chiefs fell just short of their comebacks pursuit after putting up 21 points, compared to the Rams’ 14 to end the game.

Rams’ Jared Goff completed 31 of his 49 pass attempts for 413 yards, 5 TDs (1- Rushing TD), 0 INT, but also 2 fumble losses.
