White rally towels flickered throughout the stadium reading “LA Together,” as the LA Rams dedicated Monday night’s game to first responders and those affected by the California wildfires and the mass shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks.
Members of the Cal Lutheran University choir sang the national anthem as first responders and their families carried an American flag that stretched the length of the field before the start of the Rams’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Players and coaches from both teams wore dark gray hats with logos of Los Angeles-area firefighter and law enforcement agencies.
From start to finish, this was a playoff caliber game. Billed as the “Game of the Year,” this matchup somehow managed to exceed expectations.
It was inevitable. We said last week that the odds of going 16-0 were almost impossible. However, what a great game this was!
While New Orleans was dominant early, the Rams put on an amazing comeback in the second half, tying the game with 21 unanswered points.
While the final result wasn’t what Rams fans were hoping for, we can be reassured in knowing that no deficit is too big for this team to overcome. It’s just one game and the Rams still have the best record in football, sitting tied with the Chiefs at 8-1.
