What to know about the Cincinnati Bengals

In just two years, the Cincinnati Bengals went from the worst team in the NFL to playing in Super Bowl LVI. After making the playoffs for five straight seasons from 2011-2015, the Bengals went five seasons without a playoff berth. In that time, Zac Taylor was brought in as head coach and Joe Burrow was selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

This season, the Bengals entered the postseason as the No. 4 seed after winning the AFC North with a 10-7 record. From there, they defeated the Las Vegas Raiders, the Tennessee Titans and finally Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game, bringing them to Super Bowl LVI to play against the Los Angeles Rams. Cincinnati now has the chance to win their first Super Bowl in franchise history. Plus, Joe Burrow has a chance to add a Super Bowl win to a list of his accomplishments including an NCAA Championship and Heisman Award.

What to know about the Los Angeles Rams

The Rams most recently played in Super Bowl LIII in the 2018 NFL season where they lost to the New England Patriots with Jared Goff at quarterback. This past offseason, Los Angeles traded Goff to the Detroit Lions for QB Matthew Stafford. In addition, the team signed Odell Beckham Jr. and acquired Von Miller from the Denver Broncos. Running back Cam Akers made a stunning return after tearing his achilles in July, adding talent to a roster that already features the likes of Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey and Cooper Kupp.

After finishing the regular season with a 12-5 record, the Rams opened up their NFL Playoffs run with a blowout win over the Arizona Cardinals. They then won a thriller against the Tampa Buccaneers and defeated the San Francisco 49ers to advance to Super Bowl LVI. Los Angeles now has the chance to win a Super Bowl at their home stadium, something the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did for the first time in NFL history last year.

  • Head coach: Sean McVay
  • Quarterback: Matthew Stafford
