The Los Angeles Rams are Super Bowl LVI champions after a 23-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at SoFi Stadium.
The win is the second in franchise history, and the first for the Rams in the city of Los Angeles: their only championship thus far has come during their tenure in St. Louis back to cap off the 1999 season.
The game started well for the Rams, who jumped to a 13-3 lead in the early second quarter. However, an injury suffered by star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was a pivotal moment in the game: the L.A. offense lost its momentum, allowing Cincinnati to get back into the game.
Down 13-10 coming out of the half, the Bengals took their first lead of the day on a 75-yard touchdown pass from Joe Burrow to Tee Higgins. The AFC champions were still up 20-16 heading into the final period, but the Rams — led by quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Cooper Kupp — scored a late touchdown to go up 23-20.
