For their “Monday Night Football” game against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Rams have planned several tributes to honor first responders and people affected by the Borderline shooting and recent wildfires.

The Rams worked through fire and law enforcement agencies and local organizations to provide thousands of complimentary tickets to the nationally televised game, which was moved last week from Mexico City because of poor field conditions there.

Members of the Cal Lutheran Choir will sing the national anthem, while first responders and members of the greater Los Angeles community will hold a field-sized American flag.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Dept. Honor Guard will present the colors during the national anthem.
