On Monday night, the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs played what many are considering to be the game of the year. The two teams combined for over 100 points and 1,000 yards in an offensive onslaught for the ages.

Both Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff threw for over 400 yards and accounted for at least five touchdowns. The NFL is clearly moving in the direction of offensive-minded football and that was on full display Monday night.

The high-scoring affair led to an historic night for ESPN. Monday Night Football averaged 16.7 million viewers - it's largest audience since December 2016.

Here's the news from ESPN's MediaZone.

The game also gave ESPN its most-viewed program since Alabama and Georgia met in the College Football Playoff National Title Game.

Los Angeles and Kansas City field two of the most exciting offenses in the NFL and it wouldn't be surprising to see them again in the Super Bowl. Pittsburgh, New England and New Orleans will have something to say about that though.
