Patrick Mahomes wins

Not only was it the first time in National Football League history that both teams scored at least 50 points, but it featured more than 1,000 yards of total offense.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was in the middle of an interview when he was presented with the ESPY Award for Best NFL Player.

There may never be another Monday Night Football game like it again, or any game at all, for that matter.

Mahomes accepted the award on stage alongside Rams quarterback Jared Goff. It took home the ESPY for "Best Game" on Wednesday night.

However, due to the fact that Alex Smith was still under center for Kansas City at the time, Mahomes served as a backup during his rookie campaign, making one start and throwing for 284 yards and an interception in that appearance. Kansas City ultimately came up just short in that contest, but the 105 points, 1,001 yards, 56 first downs and nine lead-changes between the two squads made for a simply unforgettable football game.

But before jumping that far ahead, here's to hoping that training camp goes well for Los Angeles since all eyes will be on the health of Gurley after months of trying to figure out what exactly is going on with his knee.
