Third quarter

Chiefs force third-and-goal at the 7, but Goff is able to get away for the scramble and score. Touchdown. Rams 30, Chiefs 23.
  • Chiefs ball. It was a good start to the drive for Kansas City, with a 27-yard pass from Mahomes to Chris Conley. The success wouldn’t last. Kareem Hunt ran for 3 yards and Rams took makeup penalties on back-to-back plays, setting up first-and-10 at the LA 36. But Aaron Donald came in for another strip-sack, Cam Erving didn’t fall on the ball and John Franklin-Myers picked the ball up. Turnover.

Second quarter

  • Chiefs at the 21. Mahomes with a pass short right to Hunt, who takes it all the way for a touchdown. Chiefs 17, Rams 16.
  • Rams ball. After dominating for most of the game, the Rams felt the presence of Xavier Williams. Williams recorded a tackle on first down, then a sack of eight yards on second down. Facing third-and-13 on the LA 21, Allen Bailey strip-sacked Goff and recovered the football.
  • Chiefs ball. Chiefs quickly face third-and-2, but Mahomes finds Tyreek Hill 26 yards to his right for a first down. Mahomes had Kelce on the next play, but he overthrows him. That didn’t matter because on the next play, it’s Hill again, this time to the left for 17 yards. A second-and-4 17-yard play to Chris Conley was called back due to a Cam Erving Holding penalty. On second-and-14 at the LA 28-yard line, Mahomes to Conley again for 15 yards and a first down. After nine Chiefs penalties, the Rams take their first, a Defensive Holding call. Mahomes nearly takes a nasty hit on a 6-yard scramble, but he slides just to avoid. Reid calls a pitch on the third-down play at the 1, but Kareem Hunt is stopped. They take the three points on a 20-yard field goal. Rams 16, Chiefs 10.
  • Rams have third-and-goal. Eric Murray had tight coverage on Gerald Everett. Defensive pass interference called, but Andy Reid is very angry. The ESPN telecast showed him talking to Goff. Chiefs challenge that the pass was tipped at the line and they win. Fourth down. 23-yard field goal is good. Rams 16, Chiefs 7.


First quarter

  • Rams ball. Goff to Reynolds seems to be the connection to watch early in this game. Goff hit Reynolds on second-and-8 for a 15-yard gain and first down. On the next play, both Orlando Scandrick and Steve Nelson took penalties. The Rams opted for Nelson’s penalty, a 37-yard pass interference call. The quarter ended with the Rams on the 5-yard line, with Goff just missing Reynolds for a touchdown because he couldn’t get his second foot in.
  • Chiefs ball. In a flash, the Chiefs are back in it. Running back Kareem Hunt dashed up the middle for 27 yards. Then two back-to-back plays to Tyreek Hill. Mahomes hit Hill first for 20 yards, then a 25-yard touchdown. Rams 13, Chiefs 7
  • Rams ball. Refs call their fifth penalty on the Chiefs. Steven Nelson, Illegal Use of Hands. Chiefs playing a bit of zone on defense but it is not working. Jared Goff hit Josh Reynolds, Tyler Higbee and Woods for 10-plus yards on three straight plays. Chiefs take their sixth penalty with a Neutral Zone Infraction on Dee Ford. Goff hits Cooks on third-and-6 for a first down. Derrick Nnadi takes an Encroachment penalty. Goff to Josh Reynolds for a 4-yard touchdown. The Rams are going after Orlando Scandrick specifically. Rams 13, Chiefs 0
  • Chiefs ball. Demetrius Harris takes an early Illegal Block Above the Waist penalty to make it first-and-18. Patrick Mahomes finds Chris Conley to get 11 yards back, and the crowd is so loud Chiefs need to take a timeout. Cam Erving false start, third-and-8. Mahomes chucked it deep down the right side to Travis Kelce but in and out of his hands with Marcus Peters in coverage. Cornerback Charvarius Ward made a nice play on the ensuing punt.
  • Chiefs win the toss, so the Rams start with the ball. The Rams moved the ball very quickly down the field in six plays, including a big play to Brandin Cooks for 30 yards. Jared Goff found Robert Woods for a 7-yard touchdown after a questionable call on Eric Murray for unnecessary roughness, hitting a defenseless receiver. Missed extra point. Rams 6, Chiefs 0
