Super Bowl 2022 – Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals Live Updates

At the risk of stating the obvious, it all boils down to this. After 13 seasons in the NFL (12 with the Detroit Lions), Matthew Stafford finally has a shot at capturing an elusive Super Bowl ring in his first season as a Los Angeles Rams quarterback.

On the other end of the equation is Joe Burrow, who is looking to put an exclamation point on his returning Player of the Year season by leading the Cincinnati Bengals to the franchise’s first Super Bowl title.

A Bengals victory would not only cement Burrow’s position in Who Dey Nation lore, but his status as the only quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy, a national title and a Super Bowl. Not too shabby for a sophomore quarterback.

For the Rams, a win would warrant a plethora of splashy personnel moves, including the addition of Stafford, Odell Beckham Jr. and Von Miller to a roster already touting defensive powerhouse Aaron Donald and standout Cooper Kupp.

As the Rams and Bengals prepare for one more day at work, there’s someone sitting at home feeling, well, left out.

Super Bowl regular – and recent retiree – Tom Brady took to Twitter to seemingly lament not having the opportunity to compete for an eighth ring.

Super Bowl Sunday without Brady? This one is probably going to take some getting used to.

If you can’t be at SoFi Stadium today, that’s basically the next best thing. Here’s what’s happening in Los Angeles:

Bengals in the building

The Tiger King indeed. We’ve grown accustomed to Joey B’s flashy pre-game tweaks this season, and Super Bowl LVI was no exception.

Unparalleled confidence.

While his QB opted for a stronger set, Offensive Rookie of the Year Ja’Marr Chase had the laid-back West Coast look.

Joe Mixon clearly masters the art of manifestation. The running back came with an ode to victory in the form of an intricate suit liner showcasing the Lombardi Trophy, himself and Joe Schiesty.

the house of rams

If Beckham Jr. is feeling the pressure of his first Super Bowl appearance, you wouldn’t know it. The wide receiver looked relaxed when he arrived with yellow kicks and a lettered jacket.

Donald also nailed the Southern California aesthetic with a pastel SBD (it’s a short-sleeved button up for the untrained eye) and rose-colored glasses.

The calm before the storm

It’s a great day for Super Bowl football. NFL Nation Bengals reporter Ben Baby took a moment to serve up a usual empty stadium shot of, er – lounging in the venues, before SoFi Stadium was overtaken by a sea of ​​fans and celebrities hungry for championship.

Equipment check

This Cincinnati No. 9 looks good.

Burrow’s jersey probably won’t be as clean any longer if Donald of the Rams has anything to say about it.

Meanwhile, OBJ’s kicking game is exceptional. What’s up?

It will cost you

Don’t worry, you can park a few steps from the stadium. It’ll just cost you $400.

Supply and demand make a cold case.

Coincidence of the draw?

If losing the toss before overtime is often the sign of death, winning it before the Super Bowl kicks off could have the opposite implication.
