Super Bowl Preview and Prediction Cincinnat Bengals vs Los Angeles Rams
The Super Bowl has finally arrived in So Fi Stadium in Los Angeles, California and it could be the hottest game in Super history. Temperature is expected to be mid 80’s to 90’s by game Time. The record hottest game in Super Bowl history was set in 1973 (Super Bowl VII) in Los Angeles, California. Teams might want to ease down on a fast-tempo offensive, so they don’t get burnt out by the heat.
These two are pretty similar to each other as stats is being compared too, for instance, both teams are strong against the run and weak against passing game on defense. The defensive line and linebacker will stake the line to stop the run and put pressure on the quarterback by forcing them to make mental mistakes. Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow are pockets and they are not a scrambler. Cincinnati has 6 interceptions and Los Angeles Rams have 4 interceptions during the playoff.
Offensively both teams rely on the passing game because Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow are a gunslinger. Basically, the passing game opens up to improve their running game to force the defensive to pay more attention to the passing game and not consistently stack the front line.
Cincinnati Bengals must contain WR Cooper Kupp Rams leading receiver and Odell Beckham to force the Rams to run the ball more. That play right into Cinnati hand controlling the game, CamAcker and Sony Michel is not a real threat to them.
The Rams have contained Joe Burrow and Joe Mixon because they are the heart and soul of their offensive. The Rams must stack the line they are capable to break down the Cincinnati offensive line because they give up a lot of sacks and force Joe Burrow to throw more short passes.
Super Bowl seems to be a home-field advantage for the Los Angeles Rams because SoFi Stadium is Rams home field. Rams fans will dominate the stadium capacity inspired the teams to play hard to win this game.
Prediction: Rams 28-23
MVP: QB Mathew Stafford
