Super Bowl LVI will feature the lowest-seeded teams in NFL history.
In case you hadn’t heard, the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams are heading to the Super Bowl after the former underdog teams won the AFC and NFC Championships on Sunday. The Rams rallied to beat the San Francisco 49ers 20-17, while the Bengals edged out the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24.
MaximBet’s opening Super Bowl LVI betting line had the Rams at -2.5 over the Bengals, as virtually every sportsbook favors LA over Cincinnati when the Rams try to win a world championship on their home field.
According to Yahoo Sports, Super Bowl LVI will be the lowest-seeded in NFL history, as both the Bengals and Rams both entered the playoffs as No. 4 seeds. The teams are also bringing 12 combined total losses—another record high for championship-contending franchises.
While playing in the Super Bowl is a massive achievement for any player, it’s especially impressive for Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who did so in his first full NFL season.
After the win, the 25-year-old Bengals QB celebrated by donning a black turtleneck and a diamond-encrusted gold chain with a “JB9” pendant, clearly channeling Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s iconic mid-’90s outfit.
When asked about his bling’s authenticity, Burrow said, “They’re definitely real. I make too much money to have fake ones.”
Super Bowl LVI: Rams vs. Bengals kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday, February 13 on NBC at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
