Super Bowl 2022: The Los Angeles Rams & The Cincinnati Bengals
The Rams lead the first half, with receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Cooper Kupp scoring the first two touchdowns of the day.
Kupp holds the game’s Most Valuable Player title, finishing with eight catches for 92 yards and two scores. He made his second touchdown of the game when fellow quarterback Matthew Stafford pass him the ball.
He said after the game,
“I just don’t feel deserving of this. God is so good. I’m just so thankful for the guys I get to be around, for the coaches, my family. I don’t know what to say.”
Then on the first play of the second half, Joe Burrow, the Bengals’ young star who lead his team from 17-13, tossed a 75-yard touchdown to receiver Tee Higgins.
Los Angeles had spent much time behind Cincinnati after the Bengals started the third quarter with a long touchdown pass and attempted to control Los Angeles for as much of the second half as possible. In the end, the Rams come back by scoring a touchdown with less than two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
The team stopped Joe Burrow and was forced to throw an incomplete pass as he faced pressure from Ram’s pass rusher, Aaron Donald in the game’s final moments. As a result, the ball back over the Rams and direct to a 23-20 victory. Following the game, it was the team’s fifth Super Bowl trip.
Similarly, this is the second time that the Rams won the Super Bowl title in franchise history. Earlier, the team won its first title in 2000 when the team was based in St. Louis and defeated the Tennessee Titans in Atlanta.
Also, it was the second achievement for a team playing in its own stadium. Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beats the Kansas City Chiefs at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium. On the other hand, it was the third Super Bowl visit for the Bengals since 1989. Sadly, they’ve lost all three.
Who is the coach of the Los Angeles Rams?
Los Angeles Rams head coach is Sean McVay. The Youngest coach to ever win a Super Bowl. McVay turned 36 on January 24. In 2017, he was hired by the Rams at the age of 30. Over the following seasons, McVay led the Rams to two Super Bowl appearances and won the Super Bowl LVI.
He began his coaching career as an assistant wide receivers coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. He then served as the quality control/wide receivers coach for the Florida Tuskers. Similarly, he worked as the assistant tight ends coach for the Washington Redskins under head coach Mike Shanahan until 2016.
Celebrities performed during the halftime show
Hip hop’s biggest stars Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, and Snoop Dogg turned the Super Bowl LVI field into the coolest nostalgic concert. This is the first time the Super Bowl featured hip-hop artists performing the main act on the field.
Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and Mary J. Blige were previously confirmed as performers but 50 Cent made a surprise appearance on the halftime show.
He performed his 2003 hit “In Da Club”. Some of the biggest hip-hop and rap stars took the stage back in the 90s and early 00s. Similarly, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre performed “The Next Episode,” a stage set up to look like a 90s house party.
They also performed Tupac Shakur’s “California Love”. Further, Mary J. Blige performed a medley of her biggest hits “Alright” and Eminem performed his hit “Lose Yourself”. Ultimately, Dr, Dre closed out the show with his performance in “Still D.R.E”.
