Tony Dungy impressively predicted a 100-point MNF game
Tony Dungy only needed to see 10 minutes of the incredible “Monday Night Football” game to know where it was heading.
After seeing a couple of early penalties called on the Kansas City Chiefs’ defense, Dungy knew that the game was setting up to be high-scoring. He said that with the way the refs were calling the game, there would be 100 points scored.
This NFL officiating is hard to watch. If those two calls are penalties the secondaries will have no chance. There will be 100 points scored tonight.

Fast forward a few hours, and Dungy’s prediction came true. 105 points were scored in the Los Angeles Rams’ 54-51 win — the most in “Monday Night Football” history. 13 penalties were called on the Chiefs for 135 yards and 8 on the Rams for 60 yards. The defenses created some turnovers but struggled overall to slow down the opposing offenses.
Patrick Mahomes threw for 478 yards, 6 touchdowns and 3 interceptions, while Jared Goff went for 413 yards and 4 touchdowns. What a game.
