Super Bowl 56 promises to be another classic showdown, with a rare appearance for the Cincinnati Bengals at the showpiece event. They’ll be taking on the Los Angeles Rams for a shot at winning the Vince Lombardi trophy in Sunday night’s Super Bowl clash.
The Bengals have reached their first Super Bowl since 1988 this year, although they’re yet to win a title game in the franchise’s history.
Despite the Bengals coming bottom of the AFC North in 2020 – losing 11 of their 16 matches – they came out firing in 2021, and managed to finish top of the league.
The Bengals’ success has been largely attributed to Burrow’s incredible season – showcasing the talent that led him to the No 1 draft pick in 2020.
During this year’s regular season, Burrow had the highest pass completion rate of any starting QB in the NFL, and the third-highest yards-per-game.
