The Los Angeles Rams have won Super Bowl LVI. The Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

The Rams are the second straight team to win the Super Bowl at their home venue. Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

Los Angeles now has two Super Bowl wins in his team history. The first came at the conclusion of the 1999 season as the St. Louis Rams when they won Super Bowl XXXIV against the Tennessee Titans.

The Rams went all-in throughout the season with their roster moves. In the off-season, the team made a blockbuster deal with the Detroit Lions to acquire Matthew Stafford.

Then, before the trade deadline, the team acquired Von Miller in a trade with the Denver Broncos. Following the trade deadline, the team signed Odell Beckham Jr. once he was released by the Cleveland Browns.

Cooper Kupp was named the game’s MVP. He is the eighth wide receiver to win the award.

Former New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was the last wide receiver to win the MVP award at the conclusion of Super Bowl LIII in their win over the Rams.

Stafford went 26 of 40 for 283 yards. He had three touchdown passes and two interceptions.

He is the second-oldest player in terms of time to win their first Super Bowl. Only John Elway took longer to win a Super Bowl at 15 seasons when the Broncos defeated the Green Bay Packers 31-24 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California.
