The final game of the 2021 NFL season is just hours away from taking place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, the host for Super Bowl LVI.
The Los Angeles Rams, the NFC’s representative for this year’s Super Bowl, is a team deemed by many to have everything on the line. After reaching the Super Bowl three years ago and coming up short to the New England Patriots, 13-3, the Rams have reloaded for this year’s run at the Vince Lombardi Trophy. A new quarterback in Matthew Stafford has helped revitalize an offensive attack spearheaded by the league’s Offensive Player of the Year, Cooper Kupp. Along the way, the Rams have added veteran talent in pass rusher Von Miller and wideout Odell Beckham Jr, bolstering their already star-studded cast.
And for the AFC, the young, upstart Cincinnati Bengals, a team that’s overcome underdog odds in back-to-back weeks against this year’s No. 1 seed Tennesse Titans and last year’s AFC Champion Kansas City Chiefs. The Bengals have shown the rest of the league just how devastating and unstoppable their 1-2 connection of Joe Burrow and rookie receiver Ja’Marr Chase can be, and the defense has made big plays in big moments to help propel this improbable Super Bowl run. But don’t confuse the improbability for an unworthiness, this team has proven time and time again to be more than a group who’s just happy to be where they are.
