On Sunday, February 13th, Super Bowl LVI went the way of the Los Angeles Rams! Joe Burrow with the Cincinnati Bengals vs Matthew Stafford with the Los Angeles Rams, these two quarterbacks definitely didn’t disappoint. 70,048 fans attended in Sofi Stadium in LA, a total of 618 yards were run in the Super Bowl, and both quarterbacks had the number 9 on their jerseys. 

The Rams had a decent first half with a 3-point lead and two touchdowns scored, whereas the Cincinnati Bengals had one touchdown and one 3 point field goal. Unfortunately, the LA Rams lost a key component to winning; Odell Beckham Jr., at the end of the second quarter after having a great first half, was on the ground holding his knee in pain and limping off the field with help.  

The two halves were split up with an energetic halftime show by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cents, Anderson Paak, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige. The whole stadium was lit up with excitement over this hip-hop/rap-filled halftime show! 

Back from the half, fans could tell that the Cincinnati Bengals were eager for more touchdowns and they succeeded – in less than 15 seconds the Bengals had scored a touchdown in the second half! A few field goals later the score was 16-20 with the Rams trailing by 4 points. With two minutes left in the game and everyone on the edge of their seat, will Matthew Stafford save the game? Will the Bengals’ defense tackle this challenge? What is going to happen?! So many questions! Yellow flags from the refs were flying as the Rams just wanted their 6 points! Finally, come minute 1:25 #10 Cooper Kupp scored for the Rams, no flags thrown. 

In the fourth quarter the Bengals just wanted their first down, but the man of the Super Bowl Rams defender number 99 Aaron Donald sacked Joe Burrow at 39 seconds. That was it! The Los Angeles Rams were Super Bowl LVI Champions! Tears of joy came out of the Rams players, fans cheering and screaming out of excitement, and one happy head coach of the LA Rams, Sean McVay, had Gatorade poured all over him!
