The Rams and Bengals play in the Super Bowl

With an exciting comeback, the Bengals are entering the Super Bowl. Favorite Kansas City star Patrick Mahomes is at a disadvantage. In the final of the Vince Lombardi Cup, the Los Angeles Rams are waiting, who will take the final in their own stadium.

The Los Angeles Rams made it to the Super Bowl on their own court and surprisingly met the Cincinnati Bengals in a couple of weeks. The underdog defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 after overtime and prevented the favorite from making their third consecutive Super Bowl appearance. Then the Rams beat the San Francisco 49ers 20:17, and like last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers got a chance to win the championship on their home court.

Before the Bucs won over quarterback Tom Brady, no team had played the Super Bowl in their stadium. “It was an incredible performance by our team,” Matthew Stafford said in an interview with Fox TV. “We said in the locker room we weren’t going to lose this game.” He had just switched from the Detroit Lions to the Rams before the season.

For the Rams, this is his first Super Bowl appearance since the defeat to the New England Patriots in February 2019. The Rams won his only Super Bowl title to date – then the St. Louis Rams – at the end of January 2000 with a time of 23:16 against them against the Tennessee Titans. The Bengals have not won the championship and were last in the Super Bowl 33 years ago.

“Speak less now”

For Franconi Marc Nzocha, the dream of a second Super Bowl appearance has exploded right now. The 32-year-old was part of the team that lost to the Chiefs again in 2020. The Rams were now 17:7 and had a tough time against the guests from Northern California. But the team came back and took the initiative with a field goal with 109 seconds of time. The 49ers interception after 30 seconds sealed the hosts’ victory and the NFC title.

At Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, the Bengals made up for a 3:21 deficit in the second quarter and the Chiefs’ possession early in the extra 15 minutes. “If you lose the coin against these guys, you usually go home,” Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow told CBS. “I’m just a little speechless now.” The chiefs had previously saved themselves with a field goal when the clock was running out and then granted an objection there. A field goal by kicker Evan McPherson made the Bengals a perfect win.
