Bengals winners from Super Bowl LVI

Sam Hubbard

It felt like Sam Hubbard was everywhere in this one, didn’t it? The Cincinnati native finished the game with eight tackles, including two for loss, and had one QB hit in the game as well. Hubbard was also a beast up front, preventing the Rams from having any success at running the ball.

Ja’Marr Chase

When it felt like the Bengals were going to come back and win this game, Ja’Marr Chase was a huge reason as to why. The big play he had to set the Bengals up at midfield on their first play after the final Rams touchdown had fans feeling like one more comeback was absolutely possible.

Chase finished his first-ever Super Bowl with five catches for 89 yards with a long of 46 yards. He was Joe Burrow’s go-to guy in this one and while the right result didn’t happen, Chase still proved he can get his against one of the best cornerbacks in the league.

Joe Burrow

Some people didn’t feel as though Joe Burrow wowed in this game but it’s hard to do much when the Rams’ pass-rush is breathing down your neck on every play. Burrow finished the game going 22-of-33 for 263 yards and a touchdown but the seven sacks were too much for even him to overcome.
