Super Bowl LVI is going to feature a veteran quarterback vs. a quarterback, who is not scared of the pressure. It’s a matchup of Matthew Stafford vs. Joe Burrow.
The final game of the season, which will feature the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, will be held on Sunday, February 13th, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. The game will kick off at 6:30 pm EST on NBC.
This is the second Super Bowl featuring two No. 1 overall draft picks. Stafford was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions.
Burrow was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft by the Bengals.
In Super Bowl 50 in February 2016, the Denver Broncos were led by Peyton Manning, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft. Cam Newton led the Carolina Panthers into the game.
Newton was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Stafford has been in the NFL for 13 seasons. He was acquired by the Los Angeles Rams during the off-season.
The Rams traded Jared Goff and numerous draft picks for the 34-year-old. Los Angeles felt like Stafford was the missing piece to helping the team win the Super Bowl.
Stafford has thrown for 905 yards this postseason. He has thrown six touchdown passes and one interception.
Burrow — who is playing with house money — has thrown for 842 yards this postseason. The Ohio native has thrown four touchdown passes and two interceptions.
