Rams, Bengals square off in Super Bowl LVI

The Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Benglas will play in Super Bowl LVI this Sunday.

It’s the first time these two teams have met in a championship game. The Rams advanced to the NFC championship game for the second time in the past four seasons and beat the San Francisco 49ers20-17 last weekend. Led by stars like defensive lineman Aaron Donald, kicker Matt Gay, Wide Reciever Cooper Cup, outside linebacker Von Miller, wide receiver Odell Beckam Jr.,and Corner Back Jalen Ramsey, the Rams ranked third in the NFC in rushing defense (103.2 yards per game allowed) and third in scoring offense (27.1 per game). 

´´I’m tripping over myself,” Kupp said after the NFC championship game. “I´m so juiced.”

This is the Bengals’ first Super Bowl appearance since 1998, when they lost to the 49ers, 20-16. Before the season, the Bengals had not won a playoff game since 1990, when they beat the Oilers (now the Titans), the longest streak in the four major North American sports.

After finishing 4-11-1 in 2020, quarterback Joe Burrow, receiver Jamar Chase and running back Joe Mixon helped lead the team to a 10-7 record and AFC North division title. 

“I’ve won everywhere that I’ve been,” Burrow said after beating the Chiefs. “I’ve never had a losing season in sports from the moment I was five-years-old. I’m not a loser.”
