Inglewood, California (AP) – Cooper Coop caught a 1-yard landing pass from Matthew Stafford with 1:25 left, and the Rams beat the Bengals 23-20 and won the Super Bowl Sunday night.
Kupp had four receptions for 39 yards on that drive, including the last three. He also had a key 7-yard run from the right end on the fourth and-1 from the 30-yard LA line.
Stafford finished 7 of 11 on 57 yards in a series of 15 games and 79 yards.
Previous updates from SoFi Stadium:
The Cincinnati Bengals are minutes from the first ever Super Cup championship franchise.
That is, if the Bengals can keep Joe Barrow upright.
The Bengals are leading the Los Angeles Rams with a score of 20-16 in three quarters, despite the fact that Barr has been sacked five times in just the third. It was the first time since at least 2000 that the quarterback had been sacked at least five times in a quarter in the playoffs.
Now Burov has been fired six times in this game. This is the fifth time in Barrow’s short career and the third time this season he has been fired at least six times.
The №1 pick in the overall 2020 draft was fired a record 18 times this postseason, and he was fired 69 times throughout the season.
During the break of this year’s Super Cup, the Los Angeles Reims are leading in the Cincinnati Bengals with a score of 13-10.
Matthew Stafford threw for 165 yards and two touchdowns. He may be without one of his top targets in the second half, and Odel Beckham Jr. can’t come back after injuring his left leg when 3:50 left in the second quarter. This is the same Beckham knee torn PKS in the 2020 season. The wide receiver went to the locker room, and he had two catches for 52 yards and a touchdown.
Cooper Kupp has three catches for 40 yards and another TD Rams.
Joe Barrow threw Cincinnati for 114 yards. Back-back Joe Mixon threw a lone TD Bengals on a pass to Lee Higgins.
Cincinnati corner defender Mike Hilton got his first turn in the game, making his way in front of craft receiver Van Jefferson in the final zone. Stafford kicked left on the third and 14th and threw deep from the center of midfield. Officials praised Cincinnati for unsportsmanlike conduct, not for bullying, but for a player in a hoodie without a uniform who ran to the end zone to celebrate. That made Cincinnati start on their 10th two minutes before the half.
Stafford has equaled the most interceptions in the regular season since 17. Now he has two in the postseason. The only defender to make the most interceptions in the regular season and win the Super Cup was Eli Manning in the 2007 season with the Giants.
Los Angeles Rams receiver Odel Beckham Jr. suffered a left leg injury during a contactless game, and remained in the second quarter with 3:50 left.
Beckham ran to the right side of the field at the crossroads, but his leg seemed to catch on to the lawn. He missed a pass thrown by Matthew Stafford, and grabbed his leg as he fell onto the turf.
Beckham was watched by coaches on the field before being helped out. He was briefly looked at in a medical tent on the side of Rams before heading to the locker room.
Beckham, who was signed by Rams after being released by Cleveland in the middle of the season, had two receptions for 52 yards. He scored his first touchdown in Los Angeles when he beat Mike Hilton in the right corner of the end zone with a score of 17 yards.
The Los Angeles Rams have their first point in the Super Cup.
Matthew Stafford completed his second drive of the Rams, making a 17-yard pass to Odel Beckham Jr. with a score of 6:22 in the first quarter. Beckham caught the ball over Bengals corner defender Mike Hilton, then the wide receiver celebrated his TD with a quick lunar hike. Beckham signed a contract with Los Angeles on Nov. 11 after being cut by the Cleveland Browns.
Stafford has 4 out of 4 on 47 yards and a pass rating of 155.2 to start the game.
The Rams had to go just 50 yards in six games in 3 minutes 35 seconds because the defense forced the Bengals to turn the ball over to complete the discovery of Cincinnati possession.
tossing a coin
The Bengals won the coin toss and postponed the attack on the Rams to start the Super Cup 56.
This may not be the sign that Bengals fans want.
The last seven coin toss winners have lost in the Super Cup. The last team to win a coin toss and a Super Cup? Seattle defeated Denver in 2014.
Quarterback Rams Matthew Stafford called the tails with the Los Angeles technically visiting team. The coin thrown by Billy Gene King rose.
King was on hand to toss a coin when the NFL recognized the 50th anniversary of Chapter IX, enacted in 1972 as part of the Education Amendments, which provide equal funding for men and women for the first time in high schools, colleges and universities receiving federal funding. .
She was joined by team captains of the California School for Deaf Riverside Cubs, members of the Champions League for high school students and youth players from Inglewood Chargers and Watts Rams.
King posted on Twitter a video in which she practiced tossing a coin before the start. King wrote “Pressure is a privilege”, and she noted that the tip to bend the knees actually helped a lot.
PRICES ON TICKETS
Getting into this Super Cup at the last minute would mean a big hit to the wallet.
StubHub says Sunday’s price was $ 3,800, up 10% from Saturday, but the average ticket price was $ 6,136. This is a drop of 8% compared to Saturday.
The site still had more than 1,400 tickets on Sunday morning.
Fans from California have bought nearly 40% more tickets in the last 24 hours, as well as nearly 35% of new tickets sold during that period.
Believers in Cincinnati were busy: buyers from Ohio accounted for 8% of sales.
BENGALS – TEAM?
The Cincinnati Bengals Super Cup on Sunday is technical. The home field advantage belongs to the Los Angeles Rams.
The “home team” in the Super Cup is determined by rotation. The NFC team is the home team in odd Super Cups, which means that the AFC is the home team in even Super Cups such as this one.
Despite these specifications, the NFC Rams champion (15-5) dresses and trains from his usual locker room, spending the night before a big game at his usual hotel. The Rams logo is pasted around and inside the SoFi stadium, even with banners that make it clear that this is a Super Cup.
Yes, the Bengals (13-7) are represented at the stadium with the title and “Who Dey!” mantra opposite the Rams.
This is the second consecutive Super Cup where the hosts played at home after Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Bacchins won the championship a year ago at Raymond James Stadium. Prior to that, the NFL had not played in the Super Bowl at its home stadium for 54 years.
When the Los Angeles Reims and Cincinnati Bengals meet for the 2022 Super Cup on Sunday, only one team will come out of the Lombardi Trophy. But even those who lose – and even some players who never play a second of playing time – will leave a big chunk of extra money.
This is due to the position in the NFL negotiation agreement with the Players Association. The agreement stipulates that the players of the winning team earn an additional $ 150,000 for participating in the Super Cup, while the players of the losing team earn half of that amount: $ 75,000.
It may not be a lot of money for multi-million dollar contract stars, but only this check easily exceeds the average family income in the US that was $ 67,521 in 2020.
Start at Super Bowl 56 in less than an hour, and both teams warm up on the field at SoFi Stadium.
Joe Barrow heads the Cincinnati Bengals, and Matthew Stafford is dressed in a modern white Rams T-shirt. This is the first place in the Super Cup for everyone.
Barrow – the fastest to move from number 1 in the overall standings to the start of this game.
Stafford had never won the playoffs before that postseason after Rams traded him. Stafford comes in with 49,995 yard passes and 323 TD passes. This is mostly for the quarterback, who played in the Super Cup for the first time. Stafford need just 209 yards to become the sixth player to score 6,000 in one season.
FANTAL PACK SOFI
“Who’s Day!” fans make themselves known at the SoFi stadium.
The fees are filled with people with Bengali knitwear, and their number exceeds Rams knitwear by almost 4: 1. The most popular is Joe Barrow’s jersey № 9.
Belgals believers are also not waiting for the start. They walk around chanting “Who Dey!” in the house of his opponent.
The 56th Super Cup at SoFi Stadium is hot. Simple not the hottest ever for this game.
The temperature was 82 before the start between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals after cooling off from 85 a couple of hours before the start. California has faced a heat wave over the past week, with temperatures in the region reaching the 90s.
That’s less than the 84 record set on January 14, 1973 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
The signs around SoFi Stadium remind people to wear masks, although many people inside on Super Bowl 56 walk without masks, even when not eating or drinking. President Joe Biden believes that people should be attentive – if not to themselves, then to their children and families.
In an interview shown during the NBC pre-game show, Lester Holt asked Biden about how people without masks go to the Super Bowl. The president said he likes the way people talk about personal freedom. Biden said he did not consider people who do not wear masks to practice freedom. He says they are endangering their own health and the health of others.
He also urged people to get vaccinated and use tools to prevent death and serious illness.
California eased the mask requirements on Tuesday, two days after the Super Cup.
