Chiefs and Rams are Tied, 23-23, at Halftime

The Chiefs and Rams are locked in a close game in Los Angeles

The Kansas City Chiefs are tied with the Los Angeles Rams, 23-23, at halftime in a high-scoring bout at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Monday night.

Los Angeles opened the game with a pair of touchdowns before Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes led Kansas City to points on each of their next three possessions. That included touchdown strikes to wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tailback Kareem Hunt, the latter of which pushed the Chiefs in front late in the second quarter.

Defensive end Allen Bailey helped bring about that go-ahead score with a strip-sack of Rams' quarterback Jared Goff, notching his first forced fumble since 2015 and setting up Mahomes' swing pass to Hunt a play later.

Rams' defensive tackle Aaron Donald later answered with a strip-sack of his own, however, forcing the ball free from Mahomes deep in Chiefs' territory for linebacker Samson Ebukam to bring back for an 11-yard touchdown that put Los Angeles back in front.

The Chiefs were then back in the end zone in the game's closing seconds, as Mahomes found wide receiver Chris Conley for an 8-yard touchdown to tie the game heading into the break.

Mahomes completed 17-of-20 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns in the half, finding Hill six times for a team-high 102 yards. It marked Hill's fourth game with 100-yards through the air this season.
