Super Bowl 56 Preview: Who Brings Home the Vince Lombardi Trophy
The time has come. Six months and 544 total games, we have finally reached the final game between the last two teams standing. Allow me to introduce those final two teams.
Representing the AFC in Super Bowl 56…
A 4th seed, who last year won four games while losing their QB to an ACL tear, coming back and defying all odds. Beating the Raiders in the Wild Card. Then the top-seeded Tennesee Titans, before taking down the goliath two-seeded Kansas City Chiefs.
Led by QB, Joe Burrow, and Ja’Marr Chase, and an up and coming defense, coached by Zac Taylor… INTRODUCING THE CINCINNATI BENGALS.
Representing the AFC in Super Bowl 56…
A 4th seed, that is led by a QB making his first Super Bowl appearance after spending his career with the Lions, Matthew Stafford has rejuvenated this team’s offense, led by superstar receiver, Cooper Kupp, and receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Boasting one of the best defenses in the league with superstar, Aaron Donald, and CB, Jalen Ramsey, this team plowed through the Arizona Cardinals in the Wild Card, upended a tough Buccaneers Comeback, and then ended a Cinderella run in the San Francisco 49ers.
Entering their second Super Bowl in 4 years, looking to avenge their loss from 2017… Ladies and gentlemen, INTRODUCING THE LOS ANGELES RAMS.
How Each Team Can Win Super Bowl 56…
Let us break down how each team can win the Super Bowl…
How the Bengals can Rise to a Victory…
It will be one of the toughest tests of the season for this young Bengals team, going up against a formidable foe in Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey.
The Key for the Bengals to win this game is the same as it was in the AFC Championship game, protect Joe Burrow at all costs. It was not that long ago that he was sacked NINE times in the Divisional Round against the Titans. This O-Line was able to hold up well against a tough Chiefs front in the second half of the game last Sunday, but now you are staring down arguably the best defensive player in the league in Aaron Donald. This is where the O-Line needs to step up and big.
Defensively, it is all about the pressure, there is no stopping Cooper Kupp and we know that you can only slow him down. The way to stop that though is to put a ton of pressure on Stafford, historically and even this season Stafford has not been good when being pressured. If the Bengals defense can force at least 3-to 4 sacks, then they will be in a good position.
How the Rams can Finally Punch their Ticket for a Lombardi Parade…
You live and you learn, and that is exactly the reality that hit Head Coach, Sean McVay in 2019 as they lost 13-3 to the New England Patriots.
He will use that game as motivation to try and secure them this Super Bowl. It is a simple concept, do not take your foot off the gas. If it is 4th and short in plus territory, you go for it. If you do not get it and get another chance, go for it again. It is a simple concept that can go a long way.
Secondly, Mattew Stafford needs to not hold on to the ball for so long, it is what plagued him in the second half of the Buccaneers game.
The Rams are the away team in their home stadium, being at home should benefit them, but it is tough to tell. Either way, coaching is the biggest aspect for this Rams team, and for them to take home the Lombardi, the coaching staff needs to take the next big step on Sunday.
Final Prediction for Super Bowl 56…
In the end, it is a tough choice to pick the winner of this game, I believe it will be a shootout and come down to the final minutes.
It will come down to experience and coaching, and that obviously leans towards the LA Rams, but you also have to look at the hot hand that is of Joe Burrow and the Cinderella Team Bengals.
In the end, I do think experience edges out the hot hand, deep down I want Joe Burrow and the Bengals to pull this one-off, but I believe this one will go to Matthew Stafford cementing what could be a Hall of Fame Career.
Los Angeles Rams 34 — Cinncinati- 31
I hope everyone enjoys what should be a thrilling Super Bowl 56! Enjoy time with your friends, while watching the game and what should be a fantastic halftime show!
