Kevin breaks down why the Rams are winning this Sunday night
20-17. Nail biter. The Los Angeles Rams won over the 49ers in the NFC Championship, and now, the home team is gearing up for Super Bowl LVI. With the offense under the reign of quarterback Matthew Stafford and head coach Sean McVay, the Rams have found success all season. For the Rams, the general consensus is that they’re the team that deserves this. Stafford spent 12 grueling seasons in Detroit that resulted in zero playoff wins. Year in and year out, he put his all into a franchise whose only contribution to him was to help complete his Fitbit goals.
After one season with the Rams, Stafford finds himself on the biggest stage in the league, leading his team in the most important game of his career, not to mention the star-studded offense that surrounds him. The talents of Odell Beckham Jr., Cooper Kupp, and Cam Akers line up with Stafford. Kupp is having a historic season this year: He’s the fourth triple crown receiver (player that leads the league in receptions, yards receiving and touchdowns receiving) in the history of the NFL, with 145 receptions, 1,947 yards, and 16 touchdowns. He’s one of the smartest slot receivers in the league with a strong skill set and great decision-making.
Now while the Rams offense runs deep, their defense is nothing short of spectacular as well. They sport arguably the best player in football, with Aaron Donald attacking from the D-Line. The best cornerback in football also sports the blue and gold, as Jalen Ramsey is making his first Super Bowl appearance for the Rams. You’re gonna want to look out for veteran Ramsey and his matchup against rookie Ja’Marr Chase as they go head-to-head on the biggest stage.
Three years ago, the Rams lost the Super Bowl in an embarrassing performance against Tom Brady’s Patriots. Now, with a new quarterback leading the charge, and a strong supporting cast around him, there’s no way that the Rams don’t come out on top.
