The Cincinnati Bengals took on Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI is looking to win the first Super Bowl in franchise history. Led by dynamic duo Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase, Cincy was a destined team throughout the season.
One thing the Cincinnati Bengals did throughout the season was prove everyone wrong. They were a weak team all season and especially in the knockout stages. When they faced the #1 seed Titans in the split, everyone thought their magic carpet ride would be over.
Despite beating the Titans, they still have a match with the captains in the AFC Championship. While they also grabbed another win at Arrowhead, the game plan to beat them was laid out in those two games, and the Los Angeles Rams were the perfect team to make it happen.
There’s been a lot of late-game controversy regarding penalties in this Super Bowl. The Cincinnati Bengals will feel that they have been misled by referral experts when an intervention call crosses against them, however, Colin Cowherd claims that is NOT the reason they lost the Super Bowl.
Colin Cowherd Points Out Cincinnati Bengals’ Key Mistakes
On Colin Cowherd’s show, ‘The Herd’, he was quoted saying “A lot of people liked this Logan Wilson penalty. It’s only down to 3rd for Rams. They had another setback. We don’t know what they will do. Rams also have 3 timeouts. If they fail on the 4th down, they will call all 3 timeouts and the Bengals will have to stop from their own bottom area as they cannot maintain a momentum throughout the second half. The Bengali also have a free encounter from the referral. Don’t complain anymore, it’s embarrassing.”
Regarding punishment, Cowherd added “He got his hands on the best wide receiver in the NFL in a pivotal situation. During major sporting events, pitchers often swallow their whistles. It’s not meant that the situation when the Super Bowl was going they wouldn’t call a pass interference. He’s got his hands up all over Cooper Kupp, he’s grabbing him. You can’t ignore that.”
On why the Bengals really lost, Cowherd said “Three moments of crisis for the Bengals. One, complete 46 yards to Ja’Marr Chase. It was the only major play for Ja’Marr Chase that mattered. The next three plays, nothing. They settle for a field goal. A second moment, they received pick from Matt Stafford, settling for an on-field goal. The third big moment, the final driving force of the game, the 3rd and 1st. They gave it to their ninth best offensive player. ”
To sum up his point, he added “The Bengals had a lot of chances in this match as they were very motivated and they tackled the goals on the pitch because they couldn’t stay motivated. This game is not decided by a way of playing you do not like. You received a 75-yard ground-breaking gift from officials. Here’s a call, situationally, in a Super Bowl minutes away that could go either way, and it didn’t go your way. You’ve got a lot of chances to win in this game. “
It cannot be denied that the Bengals simply failed to take advantage of their position throughout the game. Tackling goals on the field after Ja’Marr Chase played and interception ended up killing their chances. Maybe they’ll find a way to win if this game passes overtime but that doesn’t change the fact that the Cincinnati Bengals didn’t play hard enough to win this Super Bowl.
