Rams bring home a Super Bowl win

The Los Angeles Rams were announced the victors of this year’s Super Bowl against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Super Bowl occurred at SoFi Stadium, which is located in Inglewood, Calif. and is home to the Rams. 

Other than the actual game, the most anticipated event that took place on Super Bowl Sunday was the halftime show. Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar were the artists that performed, and they entertained the crowd with their hit songs such as “In Da Club” performed by 50 Cent and “Lose Yourself” performed by Eminem. 

When the game ended, the score was Rams 23-Bengals 20. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford threw to Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp in the endzone.  By scoring a touchdown minutes before the fourth quarter ended, they sealed their victory. 

“I’m so proud of this group. Just proud to be associated with it,” Rams head coach Sean McVay stated during the trophy presentation. 

McVay and Bengals head coach Zac Taylor are the youngest coaches to be contested in a Super Bowl. McVay is 36 years old; Taylor is 38 years old. 

“Really proud of the way that our team played, you know. They gave us tremendous effort,” Taylor stated in a postgame interview.

Taylor has been the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals since 2019, and McVay has been the head coach of the Los Angeles Rams since 2017. 

Surprisingly, both coaches share a close history with one another. In 2018, Taylor was the quarterback coach for the Rams, and McVay worked with him. 

The last time the Rams won a Super Bowl championship was in 2000, which was when the Rams were matched up against the Tennessee Titans. The Bengals had not won a playoff game in 31 years, but they advanced into the Super Bowl and broke that record.

With the Rams winning this year’s Super Bowl, they are looking forward to next season but other teams are setting their sights on advancing, as well.
