Super Bowl 56 is set!
Despite trailing 21-3 at Arrowhead, the Bengals’ magical run was extended for two more weeks thanks to a complete team effort and another walk-off kick in one of the greatest wins in franchise history.
In the NFC Championship, the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers had yet another barnburner that came down to the final minutes, but it was Rams who finally took down the Niners and will play in the Super Bowl for the second time in the past four seasons.
This will be a clash between teacher and protégé, as Rams coach Sean McVay helped aid the rise of Bengals coach Zac Taylor.
Taylor was an assistant under McVay during the Rams’ run to Super Bowl 53, where they fell to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
This will also feature the Bengals going against long-time great Andrew Whitworth, who spent 11 seasons in Cincinnati before heading to Los Angeles.
Here’s what you need to know for the big game.
