SACKS

The Cincinnati Bengals are minutes away from winning the first Super Bowl in franchise history.

That is if the Bengali can keep Joe Burrow upright.

The Bengals lead the Los Angeles Rams 20-16 in three quarters, although Burrow was fired five times in just the third round. It was the first time since at least 2000, a midfielder was sacked at least five times in a single round in the knockout stages.

Burrow has now been fired six times in this game. This is the fifth time in Burrow’s brief career and the third time this season he has been fired at least six times.

1 pick in the 2020 draft overall has now been fired a record 18 times after this season, and he has been fired 69 times all season.

HALF TIME

The Los Angeles Rams led the Cincinnati Bengals 13-10 at halftime of this year’s Super Bowl.

Matthew Stafford threw 165 yards and two touchdowns. He may not have one of his top goals in the second half with Odell Beckham Jr having problems coming back from a left leg injury with 3:50 on the left in the second half. It was the same knee that Beckham tore through his ACL in the 2020 season. The wide receiver went into the dressing room, and he had two catches in 52 yards and a touchdown.

Cooper Kupp has three 40-yard catches and another TD for the Rams.

Joe Burrow threw Cincinnati 114 yards. Rerun Joe Mixon throws the Bengals’ only TD in the pass to Tee Higgins.

Cincinnati full-back Mike Hilton got his first goal of the game, as he took the lead over the Rams’ Van Jefferson at the back of the field. Stafford hit the left in third and 14th and threw deep from around midfield. Officials flagged Cincinnati for unsportsmanlike behavior, not out of mockery, but for a player in a hoodie with no uniform running into the back yard to celebrate. That forced Cincinnati to start in the 10th minute with two minutes left in the first half.

Stafford has the most interceptions in the regular season with 17. He currently has 2 post-season. The only quarterback with the most interceptions in the regular season and to win a Super Bowl was Eli Manning in the 2007 season with the Giants.

WOUND

Los Angeles Rams receiver Odell Beckham Jr. injured his left leg while playing intermittently with 3:50 remaining in the second half.

Beckham is running towards the right side of the field on a crosswalk, but it looks like his foot is caught in the grass. He missed a pass thrown by Matthew Stafford and held onto his leg as he fell to the field.

Beckham was given a look at the pitch by the coaches before being helped. He was glimpsed in the medical tent on the sidelines of the Rams before heading into the locker room.

Beckham, who was signed with the Rams after being released by Cleveland midway through the season, had two receptions for 52 yards. He scored his first touchdown for Los Angeles when he beat Mike Hilton in the bottom right corner for 17 yards.

first score

The Los Angeles Rams have their first Super Bowl score.

Matthew Stafford overcame the Rams’ second lap with a 17-yard touchdown pass to Odell Beckham Jr with 6:22 remaining in the first half. Beckham caught the ball past Bengals full-back Mike Hilton, then the wide receiver celebrated his TD with a quick dribble across the moon. Beckham signed with Los Angeles on November 11 after being severed by the Cleveland Browns.

Stafford is 4 out of 4 for 47 yards and 155.2 passer rating to start the game.

The Rams only had to go for 50 yards in six games in 3 minutes and 35 seconds because the defense forced the Bengals to bounce the ball high to end Cincinnati’s control situation.

toss a coin

The Bengals won a coin toss and postponed placing the Rams for the start of Super Bowl 56.

That may not be the harbinger of what Bengals fans want.

The seven coin toss winners ultimately ended up losing the Super Bowl. The last team to win the coin toss and the Super Bowl? Seattle beat Denver in 2014.

Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has technically named Los Angeles the away team. Coin toss by Billie Jean King.

King was ready to flip a coin when the NFL recognized the 50th anniversary of Title IX enacted in 1972 as part of the Education Amendment that provided equal funding for boys and girls in high schools for the first time. federally funded schools, colleges and universities.

She was joined by the captain of the Riverside Cubs California School for the Deaf, members of the girls’ high school chess league of champions, and soccer juniors from the Inglewood Chargers and Watts Rams. .

King tweeted a video of her practicing tossing a coin before the match started. “Pressure is a privilege,” King writes, and she notes that the knee-bending trick really helps.

FARE

Taking part in this Super Bowl at the last minute will mean a lot of money for the wallet.

StubHub says Sunday’s fare was $3,800, up 10 percent from Saturday, but the average ticket price sold was $6,136. That’s an 8% drop from Saturday.

The site still had more than 1,400 tickets left on Sunday morning.

Fans from California have purchased nearly 40% more tickets in the last 24 hours, and nearly 35% of new tickets sold during that period.

Cincinnati loyalists have been busy, with buyers from Ohio making up 8% of sales.

BE HOME GROUP?

The Cincinnati Bengals are the hosts on Sunday at the Super Bowl – technically. The home field advantage belongs to the Los Angeles Rams.

The “home team” in the Super Bowl is determined on a rotation basis. The NFC team is the home team in odd-numbered Super Bowl matches, which means that the AFC is the home team in even-numbered Super Bowl matches such as this one.

Despite that technicality, NFC champions Rams (15-5) are dressing and working in their familiar dressing room after spending the night before the big game in their familiar hotel. The Rams logo is plastered around and inside the SoFi Stadium, even with banners stating this is the Super Bowl.

Yes, the Bengal team (13-7) is represented inside the stadium with their name and “Ai Dey!” mantra facing Rams.

This is the second consecutive Super Bowl that the home team has played on its field after Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the championship a year ago at Raymond James Stadium. Before that, the NFL had gone 54 years without a team playing the Super Bowl at home.

SUPER BONUS

When the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals face off at Super Bowl Sunday 2022, only one team will walk away with the Lombardi Trophy. But even the losers – and even some players who never played a second of game time – will leave. a large amount of cash.

It’s because of a provision in the NFL’s negotiation agreement with the Players Association. The agreement stipulates that players on the winning team earn an additional $150,000 for playing in the Super Bowl, while players on the losing team earn half that amount: $75,000.

That may not be a lot of money for the team’s stars with multi-million dollar signings, but just a check could easily top the median US household income. , It’s a $67,521 in 2020.

WARMING

The match at Super Bowl 56 will be in less than an hour with both teams warming up at SoFi Stadium.

Joe Burrow is leading the Cincinnati Bengals alongside Matthew Stafford, all dressed in a modern white Rams jersey. This is the first Super Bowl landing for each game.

Stafford has never won a playoff game before this season after the Rams traded for him. Stafford comes with 49,995 passes and 323 TD passes. That’s the highest achievement ever for a quarterback with a Super Bowl debut. Stafford only needed 209 yards to become the sixth player to hit 6,000 points in a season.

MASK REQUEST

Signs around SoFi Stadium remind people to wear masks, even though many people inside Super Bowl 56 are walking around without masks even without eating or drinking. President Joe Biden says he thinks people should be careful – if not for themselves, then for their children and families.

Biden was asked about people not wearing masks at the Super Bowl by Lester Holt during an interview shown on NBC’s pregnancy show. The president said he liked the way people talked about individual freedom. Biden said he doesn’t see people not wearing masks as an act of freedom. He said they were putting their own and others’ health in jeopardy.
