Super Bowl 2022: LA Rams defeat Cincinnati Bengals 23-20
Los Angeles Rams defeated Cincinnati Bengals 23 to 20 in Super Bowl 56 on Sunday at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. This is the Rams’ second Super Bowl win in franchise history.
Sunday’s Super Bowl 56 was 20 years in the making for both the Rams and Bengals. The Rams made it in 2018, but haven't won since 1999 and the Bengals have never won in their previous three trips, with the most recent in 1988.
Sunday’s Super Bowl also marked the return of Hip-Hop to the Super Bowl. Dr. Dre led a team of Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar. The Half-time show performance lasted for nearly 14 minutes that included some of the biggest rap hits of the last 30 years. 50 Cent, who hadn’t been announced in advance, also showed up to do his indelible “In Da Club,” which Dre co-produced.
This was the third time the show was overseen by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation company. The organizers, however, did mute “we hate the po-po” on Kendrick.
Aaron Donald, defensive tackle for Rams, teared up and overcame with emotions in his postgame interview after winning Super Bowl. Cooper Kupp was named MVP.
