The Cincinnati Bengals shocked the world by knocking off the two-time defending AFC champions to advance to Super Bowl LVI. Their opponent will be the Los Angeles Rams, who are no stranger to being in the big game, having made it in the 2018 season but losing to the Patriots.

To get here, the stripes went 10-7 in the regular season, won their first playoff game in 31 years against the Raiders, took down the No. 1 seeded Titans, and then took advantage of a Chiefs team that majorly imploded to get to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1988 season.

The Rams got here by winning the NFC West, blowing out the Cardinals in the Wild Card round, narrowly avoiding a disastrous collapse against the Bucs, and then finally eeking out a win against division rival San Francisco.

Had the Niners won, it’d be the third time the Bengals faced them in the Super Bowl so fans are glad to have a new opponent in the final game of the season.

Bengals vs Rams Prediction Super Bowl LVI

The Rams have a ferocious defensive line led by Aaron Donald and Von Miller, meaning the Bengals’ offensive line has to show up and protect Joe Burrow. If they don’t, we could see a repeat of last year’s Super Bowl where Patrick Mahomes was bludgeoned all night long.

The line held up nicely against the Chiefs, but the KC d-line isn’t anywhere near as talented as the Rams’ d-line is. Burrow needs to get the ball out quickly in order to not get hit throughout the night.

We’ve seen the Bengals overcome odds all season long and I said last week with them being 7-point underdogs to KC that they’d take that personally and look what happened. While the 4-point spread isn’t disrespectful, don’t be surprised if Burrow takes notice of it and proves people wrong once again.

At this point, why would I pick against the Cincinnati Bengals? Give me a 27-20 Bengals Super Bowl victory.
