Similar to the last slide, I put all of the pass rushers together because it made the most sense to do so.

Coming into this game, we’ll all hear about how bad the Cincinnati o-line is and how dominant the Rams’ d-line is. While the Bengals were able to beat the Titans despite Joe Burrow getting sacked nine times, I don’t know if that will happen in the biggest game in all of sports. That’s why the offensive line has to play their best game of the season.

The Rams did a nice job acquiring Super Bowl-caliber talent midway through the season, grabbing OBJ and Von Miller. The former Broncos pass-rusher was a terrific addition to the Rams defense, notching five sacks and eight QB hits. This will be his third Super Bowl appearance so he’s no stranger to the big stage. Heck, he even won Super Bowl MVP when the Broncos beat the Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

Leonard Floyd is somehow the forgotten name out of the bunch despite racking up 9.5 sacks throughout the season. The former first-round pick by the Bears in 2016 is someone who could also make the Bengals’ o-line’s night a living hell if they don’t account for him.

Lastly, there’s Aaron Donald, who needs no introduction. The four-time Defensive Player of the Year is a freak of nature and we all know he’ll get his during this game. He’s going up against Trey Hopkins and the combination of Hakeem Adeniji/Jackson Carman, which, yeah, not a good sign for Joe Burrow.

If Donald has a monster game, he will win Super Bowl MVP because of the pressure he’ll put on Burrow. This happened with Miller in Super Bowl 50, who won MVP because of the constant pressure he put on Cam Newton and the ability to rattle him and force him into mistakes.

Burrow has played well in spite of bad protection but if any of these three guys have a career night, the Rams might be able to steal this win from the stripes.

None of these six Rams players can have monster games if the Cincinnati Bengals want to be the ones hoisting the Lombardi Trophy on Sunday night.
