After another exciting weekend of NFL action, the field for Super Bowl LVI is set: the Los Angeles Rams will face the Cincinnati Bengals. The Rams will be playing at their home, SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., in search of their second Super Bowl championship and fourth NFL title in franchise history. The Bengals have appeared in two Super Bowls but have never won an NFL title or, before the 1970 merger, an AFL title.

The Rams got to the Super Bowl by dispatching the San Francisco 49ers, 20-17, ending a six-game losing streak to their division rivals in the process. The Bengals pulled off a stunner in defeating the Chiefs in Kansas City, 27-24 in overtime, to win the AFC crown.
