The Super Bowl Conversation 
 
For one team, the chase was on as they looked to win their first Super Bowl trophy. The WhoDey Nation had defied the odds by being knocked down 9 but getting up 10. The young upstarts Joe Burrow and Jamarr Chase along with a jungle like defense would take center stage on the NFL’s greatest platform. Their opponents the Los Angeles Super Bowl hosting Rams would look to be the second team in NFL history to host a Super Bowl and win it on their home field. The Rams were ready to get “Kupp” by any means necessary.
 
In the first quarter, the game was impacted largely by a young coaching mistake on Zac Taylor’s behalf. On Cincinnati’s first drive, the Rams defense would produce what looked to be a three and out. The Bengals would display an over aggressive behavior that has doomed many teams this season and on 4th and 1, WhoDey would be stopped giving the Rams the ball at midfield. The Rams would capitalize six plays later as Matthew Stafford would throw a beautiful 17 yard strike to O’Dell Beckham Jr who would make a O’Dell like reception to give the Rams a 7-0 lead. The Bengals would get on the scoreboard with a 29 yard field goal from Evan McPherson right before the end of the 1st quarter. The Rams would lead 7-3 after the first quarter.
 
The second quarter energy would be on SoFi as O’Dell Beckham Jr would continue to give the Bengals secondary work as his 35 yard connection would set up Matthew Stafford’s second TD throw. The 11 yard touchdown pass to Cooper Kupp would give the Rams a 13-3 lead. The second mistake of the game would loom even larger than the first mistake as the Rams special teams would mishandled the PAT attempt. MOMENTUM SWING. On the Bengals next possession, WhoDey Nation would drive the ball 75 yards on 12 plays in which ate up 7 minutes of playclock.
 
The end result would be a 6 yard TD pass to Tee Higgins from Joe Mixon who would get into the mix of things with the flick of the wrist. Hey Joe, what was you cooking on that play. The Answer…..trickery.  The second quarter would end with the Rams leading 13-10. The halftime show was great.
 
The half-time collaboration of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Eminem, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J Blige was genius. Enough said. The third quarter would start with something “Straight Outta Cincinnati” that would have the N.W.A express themselves in a gangsta gangsta manner. The NFC West Athletes would catch a “chin check” as the Bengals would on one play and 75 yards later change the complexion of the game with a 75 yard Tee Higgins TD pass. Los Angeles wouldn’t be Los Angeles without controversy.
 
Did you see what I saw? Did Tee Higgins actually pull Jalen Ramsey face mask around? I think the whole world would agree it was a face mask penalty missed and the Bengals would take the lead 17-13. The Comeback Kids are in business again. MOMENTUM SWING. That momentum swing was followed by another one.
 
On the next play, Matthew Stafford would throw his second interception of the night. The Bengals would capitalize on the turnover by adding a field goal to extend their lead to 4. The third quarter would end with the WhoDey Nation one quarter away from winning their first championship. “WhoDey WhoDey said they gon beat them Bengals”………NO…..cough cough….The Rams did….
 
The 4th quarter was a display of two defenses who wanted to win the Lombardi Trophy. At least that was the case until the final minutes of the game. When the Rams running game found itself stuck in a bush. They force fed the offensive player of the game in Cooper “Let’s Get” Kupp. It was completion after completion from Matthew Stafford to “Hanging with Mr. Cooper” Kupp.
 
After some penalties on the Bengals secondary finally the Rams would capitalize and score on a 1 yard TD pass from Stafford to Kupp. The Rams defense would have to make a stop in order to win Super Bowl 56 and who else would step up and deliver besides Aaron Donald. Whether it was stopping a runner on third and 1 or forcing an errand throw from Joe Burrow on 4th and short, Aaron Donald would seal the deal.
 
The Rams won Super Bowl 56 by the score of 23-20. Cooper Kupp would be the Super Bowl 56 MVP.
