How the Rams and Bengals made it to the Super Bowl
Los Angeles finds itself in its second Super Bowl in four seasons, going all in on making it to this point. Pairing veteran newcomers like Matthew Stafford, Von Miller, and Odell Beckham Jr. with returning game breakers like Cooper Kupp and Aaron Donald, the Rams posted a 12-5 record in the regular season and clinched the NFC West title. Pummeling the Cardinals to open the postseason, they knocked off the defending champion Buccaneers before taking out the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game to reach this point.
Cincinnati managed to end decades of playoff misery and reach its first Super Bowl in 33 years. With franchise quarterback Joe Burrow returning from an ACL injury and his LSU teammate Ja’Marr Chase breaking onto the scene, the Bengals posted a 10-7 record in the regular season and clinched the AFC North title. After disposing of the Raiders in the Wild Card round, the Bengals went on the road to take down the top-seeded Titans in the Divisional Round before going into Arrowhead Stadium and edging the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
