The 2022 Los Angeles Rams might be one of the worst defending Super Bowl champion teams of all-time.
With all the injuries the Rams are dealing with on offense, and the lack of production from their defense, the high-octane Chiefs entered Sunday’s game with a massive advantage.
And while Los Angeles kept it close for much of the matchup, Kansas City still won handily 26-10, improving to 9-2 on the season. On top of that, their lead in the AFC West is now three games as the final stretch of the season approaches.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes finished 27-of-42 for 320 yards with a touchdown and an interception, a rare miscue on his part. He also rushed for 36 yards. Meanwhile, Travis Kelce, making a care for Offensive Player of the Year, finished with four catches for 57 yards and a TD — a 39-yard pass that opened the scoring.
The Rams had just 13 first downs and finish with only 198 total yards. Kansas City, meanwhile, had 29 and 437 in the same categories.
