2022 Super Bowl

2022 Super Bowl

Quinten Ford '24

Welcome to the best news article of the year with all of the content necessary to enjoy your Super Bowl LVI. The Super Bowl will take place in SoFi Stadium on Feb. 13. Unfortunately, we will not have the following day off, so please be responsible. 

As we all know the Cincinnati Bengals were able to push their way past the Kansas City Chiefs with an interception in overtime with a final score of 27-24. For a lot of the fans, many people never thought that the Bengals would beat the Chiefs in the playoffs. At the end of this game, we saw Ja’Marr Chase and Clyde Edwards-Helaire who graduated from the same college share a moment with each other. The Rams also won their golden ticket with an interception by Travin Howard with 1:09 left in the game. This win against the 49ers for the Rams was a long shot. The 49ers were 3-0 when it came to playing the Rams in the normal season, but when it came down to the pressure the 49ers would crumble and begin to make bad plays. 

In this entire playoff bracket, most teams won by a field goal with little to no time left! This Super Bowl could make some history because this could be the first time the Bengals could win the Super Bowl, but if the Rams win they would be the second-ever team to win in their home stadium.

For this year’s Super Bowl Halftime show, we get to see some amazing musicians performing. The stars this year are Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Dr. Dre. these music legends in their fields will come together to make one of the best halftime shows ever. On Monday, Jan. 31, 2022, Jimmy Fallon had a puppy bowl. The puppies had a jersey for each team and whichever puppy got to the food first would win the Super Bowl. At first, the puppy with the Rams jersey took off but then the Bengals puppy came back and ended up winning the Puppy Bowl. I do want the Rams to win just because they have such a solid team, although the organization is a mess. 

With such great chemistry, the Rams should be able to score off of every drive and give the Cincinnati Bengals a hard time making their way down the field with Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey, and Von Miller on defense. With the number 17 defense in the league, the Bengals should be able to try and hold off the Rams as best as they can. On offense, Joe Burrow has such a strong connection with Ja’Marr Chase. Chase should be able to make some huge catches and runs throughout the game. Joe Burrow ended the regular season with 4,611 passing yards, 14 interceptions, and 34 passing touchdowns. But on the other hand, Matthew Stafford ended the regular season with 4,886 passing yards, 17 interceptions, and 41 passing touchdowns. Both their star receivers Cooper Kupp and Ja’Marr Chase will get targeted the most throughout the games. With 16 receiving touchdowns and 146 catches in the regular season, Ja’Marr Chase has 13 touchdowns and 81 receptions. This Super Bowl is going to be one of the best ones in years. Both the Rams and the Bengals have played their hearts out the entire season and it paid off with them in the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is the most watched event in any sport in the United States of America. Go to a party, have some great food, and watch the game: especially the Halftime Show.
