Los Angeles Rams vs Cincinnati Bengals (Super Bowl 2022) match preview and statistics
Heading to the postseason, the Los Angeles Rams finished first in the NFC West division and occupied the fourth place in the NFC Conference with a 12-5 record, 12 wins, 5 losses and a .706 win percentage. Their postseason run started with the Wild card round where they faced Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals and came out victorious with a 34-11 win.
The Rams displayed their dominance on offense by outscoring the Cardinals in every quarter except the third quarter which they lost by a point margin. The Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (9) is once again pivotal to their win as he finished the game completing 13 of his 17 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns without any interception.
In the Divisional Round, the Rams faced off against the winners of Super Bowl LV, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the game ended 30-27 in favour of the Rams with Matt Gay making the go-ahead field goal that sent the Rams straight to the conference finals.
In the NFC Conference Finals, The Rams played Deebo Samuel and the San Francisco 49ers. The Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp caught 11 passes for 142 yards and two touchdowns, while Odell Beckham Jr. had a 100-yard day.
Matthew Stafford completed 31 of his 45 passes for 337 yards. Matt Gay kicked what was once again the game-winning field goal for the Rams with one minute and 46 seconds remaining. With time on the clock, the 49ers’ attempt to take the game to overtime or win it with a touchdown was nullified by Travin Howard’s interception, sending the Rams to the Super Bowl.
The Los Angeles Rams team news: Cam Akers (shoulder) and Van Jefferson (knee) were both limited, though there’s no indication they’re in danger of missing Sunday’s game. Joe Noteboom remains out with a chest injury, and Tyler Higbee missed practice, as expected. Higbee’s status is very much in doubt for the Super Bowl.
The Cincinnati Bengals entered the playoffs first in the AFC North division and fourth in the AFC conference with a 10-7 record, 10 wins and 7 losses and a .588 win percentage. They kicked off the wild card round against the Las Vegas Raiders in a game that ended 26-19 in favour of the Bengals marking their first playoff win since 1990.

The determinant field goal was once again struck perfectly from 31 Yds by Evan McPherson’s and sent the Cincinnati Bengals straight to the Super Bowl.

Los Angeles Rams vs Cincinnati Bengals (Super Bowl 2022) predictions and betting tips
The Los Angeles Rams have been impressive in their postseason run and they possess a well balanced team in offensive and defensive. Their acquisition of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jnr. bolstered their offence. Their defence, led by the 2020 NFL DPOY Aaron Donald and the defensive end Jalen Ramsey, has proved to be a hard nut to crack for every team this season.
The Bengals, led by former LSU’s Joe Burrows and Ja’Marr Chase duo, has been the dark horse of this postseason. They took to the Super Bowl for the first time in 33 years. The Rams are favourites to win on paper, but the Bengals have proven that the game is never decided by the team’s potential, but their will to win.
The odds favour the Rams, and if they play to their potential, the SuperBowl LVI is theirs. However, if the Bengals can replicate their resilience as they did against the Chiefs, they might as well win it all and get the franchise’s first Championship Trophy.
Predictions for the game are the Rams to win and over 48.5 points.
