2022 Los Angeles Rams Championship Super Bowl LVI Ring
Super Bowl LVI was an American football game played to determine the champion of the National Football League (NFL) for the 2021 season. The National Football Conference (NFC) champion Los Angeles Rams defeated the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Cincinnati Bengals, 23–20. The game was played on February 13, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, the home stadium of the Rams, marking the second consecutive and second overall Super Bowl to feature a team playing and winning in its home stadium. The Rams’ victory was their second Super Bowl title in franchise history, first Super Bowl title as a Los Angeles-based team, and first since 1999’s Super Bowl XXXIV when they were based in St. Louis. Also, it was their first NFL title as a Los Angeles-based team since 1951. Finishing with a 12–5 record, the Rams reached their fifth appearance after acquiring veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford, who had not won a playoff game in his previous 12 years with the Detroit Lions. The Bengals, who finished with a 10–7 record, were seeking their first Super Bowl title following several decades of losing seasons and playoff struggles. They won their first playoff game since 1990, ending the longest drought in the four major North American sports, en route to their third appearance and first since 1988’s Super Bowl XXIII. Each team finished the regular season as its respective conference’s 4-seed, making this the first Super Bowl without a top-3 seed since seeding was introduced in 1975. The game had three lead changes and was mostly kept within a one-possession margin. Los Angeles led 13–10 at halftime, but the Bengals scored 10 straight points on their first two drives in the third quarter. Trailing 20–16 in the fourth, the Rams scored a touchdown to retake the lead with under two minutes remaining and stopped Cincinnati’s final drive on downs. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp, who converted a fourth down on the Rams’ final drive and scored the game-winning touchdown, was named Super Bowl MVP. NBC’s broadcast of Super Bowl LVI was the second-most-watched in the game’s history, marking a shift from several years of declining ratings. Seen by an average of 112.3 million viewers, its ratings were up by 8% from the previous Super Bowl.
