Rams win Super Bowl 56. quarter by quarter thoughts and recap

Heading into the game the media made had made the past two weeks The Joe Burrow show on every major news outlet. And rightfully so. He’s been proving that he’s the Big Game Kid!

I know I spew a lot of trash about the burning hell hole that is Los Angeles, but what an awesome stadium. SoFi is truly a site to see that I would risk a trip to Los Angeles for. But without further ado. To the game!

First quarter

Odell Beckham Jr. Grabs the TD from Matthew Stafford to get the score to 7-0. While the Los Angeles offense was kicking off with Matthew Stafford connecting on his first handful of passes in the game.

The Bengals have not been able to piece anything together. At the kick of this game Joe Burrow is running for his life, looking to get it to receivers who’ve barely ran through their routes. Not looking great until Joe was able to piecemeal a drive together painfully culminating in the Evan McPherson kick and bringing the score to 7-3.

Ending score of first quarter: Bengals 3 – Rams 7

BOOOOOOOO!!! OBJ BOO!

2nd Quarter

Big starting grab by Odell Beckham Jr. Leads to a drive resulting in a Cooper Kupp touchdown. Following that is a missed PAT and what appears to be a stubbed toe for LA Rams. Bringing that score to 13-3.

While the Bengals are started less than stellar they have begun to piece together a resistance. During the second half the Bengals run the HB pass and that’ll be 6 points for the Bengals! Score was now 10-13 in favor of the Rams.

Ending score 2nd quarter: Bengals 10-Rams 13.

At halftime it appeared that we had a real contest on our hands. A true battle was taking place much to the surprise of many LA supporters. But not to the surprise of Joe Burrow’s apostles. Second half was looking to be an absolute battle to decide the 2021-2022 NFL season!

Come the opening drive of the 3rd quarter Joe Burrow delivers Higgens a 75 yard strike giving the Rams a 17 to 13 lead. Then following up with a McPherson field goal their next drive it began to look like it was now Bengals game to lose. Then the Rams hit a field goal to bring it to Bengals 20 Rams 16.

End of 3rd quarter score:Bengals 20-Rams 16

4th Quarter

After a back and forth 4th quarter the LA Rams realized they should probably return to what has worked for them all season and Stafford connected with Cooper Kupp to take the lead 23-20 with 1:25 left to play. The magic surrounding Joe Burrow had to persevere for one more drive…..

And it didn’t.

So good for LA. La-di-freaking dah. It’s a wrap! LA wins another championship good for them!

I hate sports.

(Really though props to Aaron Donald. He can’t help he was drafted by them. He is a monster that deserves this. Just wish it was with someone else).

Oh well on to 2022-2023. Go Colts

Bengals have to defy all logic and analytics for a 3rd time in a row! Super Bowl 56 (opinion piece).

So here we are. The grind that has been the 2021-2022 NFL season gets its bookend tomorrow in Los Angeles. Super Bowl 56 is upon us and the Cincinnatti Bengals are looking to take down the Los Angeles Rams.

Everyone is rooting for the Bengals it seems (unless your in their division or the 4 Rams fans out there). And who could blame them?

Joe Burrow has made his way into everybody’s heart with his playmaking big game abilities. He is the absolute man. Does BIG things in BIG situations, against BIG odds. What’s not to love when your QB is drippin in so much swag he makes O’Dell Beckham Jr. Look like Bernie Sanders

The Bengals took down the Coach of the Year Mike Vrabel’s Tennessee Titans. They then took the Kansas City’s high powered offense, where the Bengals were able to capitalize on Joe Burrow’s gunslinging and their defenses ability to capitalize on the rare Mahommes error. Although, he seemed to be making a large amount of errors, for his quality of course. Now they just need to beat the Los Angeles Rams and Matthew Stafford, arguably the most “due” guy in the NFL.

I will give Matthew Stafford all the credit in the world. He is an absolute Hall of Famer in my opinion. He was just never able to have help in Detroit. The lack of quality in the front office led to his best target,Calvin Johnson heading out to greener pastures. Literally.

While Matthew Stafford is due and I’m sure more Lions fans will be rooting for the Rams than there are actual true Rams fans. The Los Angeles Rams have the saddest fan base in sports. Yes of course they need to build one. But how uninterested does your new city need to be for your stadium home games to look like this

Sad.

Who would want them to win that isn’t exclusively rooting doe Matthew Stafford!?! They don’t deserve this. Bengals for sure deserve it over the Rams. I want this for the city of Cincinnati.

LOS ANGELES IS LITERALLY ON FIRE but but Merryl Streep wants to tell me I have to use paper straws from her private jet or something. It’s like the whole state is in the spin zone.

So the rest of the country is almost seeking to have the Bengals stop LA for all of us! They can not win in the first year of stadium home games there. There must be some semblance of justice in this world. Although LA is favorited in this one I am all in on the Joe BurSHOW to continue.

Go Bengals.
