The Cincinnati Bengals will conclude their impressive player run with a Super Bowl appearance against the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium. The Bengals won a playoff game for the first time since 1990 and decided to parlay that into an AFC championship and a Super Bowl berth. We’ll see if the Bengals continue to make bettors happy, as they’re listed as underdogs once again in this contest.
Running back Joe Mixon has been the most consistent force for Cincinnati this season. He’s been a steady presence in the running game as Joe Burrow gained chemistry with his receivers and had a big season. Mixon finished the regular season with 1,205 yards and 13 touchdowns, but also expanded his game as a receiver. He likely carried his fantasy managers to the playoffs at a minimum, and now he’ll hope to carry Cincinnati to a Super Bowl title.
