NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

1st Quarter

  • Chiefs will kick off to start. Rams offense to take the field first. Buckle up...
  • Just a very easy drive overall. Plenty of RB Todd Gurley, a nice big play from WR Brandin Cooks, and WR Robert Woods in the end zone. K Greg Zuerlein misses the kick, though!
  • Rams 6, Chiefs 0
  • And the Rams’ defense gets the first stop of the game. A ton of flags, but the ones on this series were all pretty inarguable. Rams get the ball around their own 20 with a big opportunity...
  • And take advantage! Offensive line, passing attack and Chiefs penalties end up with WR Josh Reynolds in the end zone! XP good this time from GZ.
  • Rams 13, Chiefs 0
  • Chiefs respond with ease marching down the field and carving up the Rams’ defense. This is starting to look like the game we all expected.
  • Rams 13, Chiefs 7
  • Hmm. RB Todd Gurley curiously absent this drive....
  • NEARLY a second touchdown to WR Josh Reynolds. His toe appeared to be just barely touching the line. I’m not sure if we looked at it closely and more slowly that it wouldn’t have held up if they had called it a TD in the first place. One of those plays that might have just gone the way it was called. In this case, incomplete...

2nd quarter

  • And a weird sequence ultimately ends up with the right call. No pass interference since the ball was tipped, and Rams elect to kick the field goal. Chip shot for GZ, and it’s good.
  • Rams 16, Chiefs 7
  • Chiefs march down the field, but the Rams are able to force the FG. Big win for the D.
  • Rams 16, Chiefs 10
  • Rams in 3rd & 13...and an unusually stupid play from Goff. Goes down too late trying to make something happen up the middle and coughs the ball up. Chiefs with GREAT field position.
  • Aaaaaaand that’s why you can’t give them that field position. First play, touchdown.
  • Rams 16, Chiefs 17
  • Offense stalls out and has to punt. Block in the back pins the Chiefs deep. Rams’ defense has to get a stop.
  • AND DO THEY EVER! DL Aaron Donald forces the fumble, and EDGE Samson Ebukam scoops it up for the score!
  • Rams 23, Chiefs 17
  • But the Chiefs respond impeccably marching down and getting a touchdown before the end of the half. BUT THEY MISS THE XP!!! What a hell of a game.
  • Rams 23, Chiefs 23


For the Los Angeles Rams:

  • DT Sebastian Joseph-Day
  • RB John Kelly
  • OLB Matt Longacre
  • TE Johnny Mundt
  • OLB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo
  • DB Darious Williams
  • WR Nick Williams

The Longacre inclusion is a shocker. He played 19 snaps last week, so we’ll have to see how those get distributed. It won’t be to Okoronkwo who is also out.

Here are the Kansas City Chiefs’ inactives:

  • S Eric Berry
  • WR Gehrig Dieter
  • DL Justin Hamilton
  • OL Kahlil McKenzie
  • C Mitch Morse
  • RB Darrel Williams
  • TE Deon Yelder

This of course means Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins will be active tonight. He was listed as QUESTIONABLE on the final injury report.

Randomly, had some time so I figured I’d look at who the Rams have had inactive week-to-week this year:
