Super Bowl 56 is here, and the Philly Sports Reports team has their predictions!

The Rams and Bengals are both so stinking good. Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase, Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey. I could go on and on. But, the Rams have more experience, their d-line will kill the Bengals’ o-line, and they’re playing on their home turf. So, I gotta take the Rams here by a score of 31-17. It’s just the smarter choice. The biggest part for me is that d-line. The Rams have the best d-line on the planet, where the Bengals have had the worst o-line throughout the postseason. It’s their quarterback getting the job done, and he’ll be sacked a ton. He might not be able to do anything. And Ramsey will lock up on Chase. So Burrow may not have his No. 1 target. Along with that home field, we saw what it did to the Buccaneers last year when it wasn’t even 100% capacity. Now a SoFi Stadium filled with 70,000 fans for the Super Bowl. There’s no way the Rams blow this opportunity. Of course, I’ll be rooting for Joe Shiesty and the Bengals, but I gotta take the Rams to take home the Vince Lombardi trophy.

Rams win 27-17
I know I’m probably in the minority in saying this (largely because of the Joe Shiesty memes), but I have the Rams winning this game. Out of Burrow and Stafford, I’m taking the vet in this game. In the past 2 games that the Bengals won, it looked more so like the other team lost rather than the Bengals winning. Yes.. this is me saying that the Bengals shouldn’t be in the Super Bowl. You can criticize me all you want, but the Bengals offensive line isn’t gonna stand a chance up against the Rams’ Donald and Miller duo. This will force too much pressure on Burrow that will prevent any huge plays from happening. We saw the Rams defense collapse against the Bucs, so I’ll give the Bengals 17. Even so, I wouldn’t expect it to be a pretty game on Cincinnati’s side. Matthew Stafford will finally get a well deserved Super Bowl ring.

All of our PSR followers know that I do know my football, but it’s definitely not my forte. Anyhow, let’s give it a shot.
Super Bowl LVI (56) consists of what I believe to be a very interesting matchup. I can realistically see both teams dominating the game. The Bengals have a young quarterback in Joe Burrow who had done some incredible things so far; Especially, in this postseason. On the Rams spectrum, Matt Stafford has a lot more experience in the NFL. This could definitely be a factor for the Rams. Although, I could see Stafford feeling equally pressured as this is his first season with Los Angeles. Defensively, Jalen Ramsey and the Rams are known to be some of the best in the league. As for Cincinnati, they are relatively average across the board. I think that overall, the Rams have a deeper offense. But, their injury report could be better. Lots better, actually. They are missing several key players on both offense and defense. This includes Van Jefferson, Tyler Higbee, Cam Akers, Andrew Whitworth, and Joe Noteboom. Despite this, most of them are expected to be back in time for the game Sunday evening. The Bengals do not have anyone of note that is out as of now. Ultimately, I do not think the Bengals will be able to push through the Rams defense during overtime leading the Rams to a 33-25 win.

34-31 Rams. Even though I’m rooting for the Bengals, I don’t think their offensive line will be able to fully overcome the Rams powerful defense line.
