On the Super Bowl LVI podcast with Tony R:

#1 Tony, the Los Angeles Rams will feel right at home for this Super Bowl it’s the first time a team will be playing in their very own stadium for a Super Bowl. The closest that happened was when the San Francisco 49ers played at Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto against the Miami Dolphins but it wasn’t their real stadium which was Candlestick Park at the time.

#2 Tony, the Cincinnati Bengals (13-7) coming into Sunday’s Super Bowl have won four out of their last five games wins that got them to the Super Bowl a lot of the credit has been going to quarterback Joe Burrow who has led the club into the red zone and executing the score.

#3 It’s been a long while since the Bengals have got to the Super Bowl the last time they were here was in 1988 and before that in 1982 both times they faced the San Francisco 49ers (12-8) and lost this Sunday they want to be able to hoist that trophy.

#4 Tony, in that last Bengals game for the AFC Championship they just edged one of the league’s best the Kansas City Chiefs (14-6) in a three point 27-24 win. A win that really demonstrates the poise of this team to get this far.

#5 The Los Angeles Rams are coming off a three game winning streak entering Super Bowl LVI this Sunday. They narrowly beat the 49ers 20-17 for the NFC Championship title. The Rams last Super Bowl appearance was in 2019 and are looking to capture a win in this Super Bowl.

#6 Tony, talk about Rams quarterback Matt Stafford who went 31-45 for 337 yards, and two touchdowns in that win against the 49ers. After 16 years with the Detroit Lions and in his second year with the Rams he takes them to the Super Bowl.

#2 The Bengals in that last game against the Kansas City Chiefs a nail biter and Chiefs quarterback Pat Mahomes is no easy customer but once again the Bengals and Burrow persevered.

#3 Tony, talk about the job that Bengals wide receivers Ja’Marr Chase and Samaje Perine have done. Each player caught a touchdown pass against the Chiefs last Sunday.

#4 The Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matt Stafford has come a long way 12 years with the Detroit Lions long and suffering and gets a shot at the Super Bowl in his first year under center with the Rams.

#5 Tony how much is it an advantage for the Rams playing in their own stadium SoFi in the Southland it really seems like a custom made situation for the Rams?
