Let’s take a look ahead to Super Bowl Sunday
The Rams snapped a six-game losing streak to their division rival 49ers, and the Bengals upset the reigning AFC champion Chiefs in Kansas City. Now, Los Angeles and Cincinnati are set to square off in just a few hours in the biggest game of the biggest season in NFL history: Super Bowl LVI. Are the glitzy Rams, assembled like an all-star team with Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr. leading the way, destined to become the second straight NFL team to win it all in their own stadium? Or can Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase and the young, upstart Bengals steal the spotlight yet again, this time on the grandest stage in all of sports?

Key Bengals vs. Rams matchups
- Joe Burrow vs. Aaron Donald: More like Cincy’s O-line versus Los Angeles’ front seven, but you get the picture. Burrow absorbed a record nine sacks in the Bengals’ win over the Titans earlier this postseason, but he stayed upright against the Chiefs on Sunday. Donald and the Rams, however, boast one of the nastiest fronts in the NFL, so it’ll be imperative that Zac Taylor and the Bengals’ staff gets creative, if necessary, to keep their star QB on his feet.
