Super Bowl 56 is finally here for the conclusion of the 2021 NFL Season. This year the Super Bowl pits the Cincinnati Bengals from the AFC taking on the Los Angels Rams from the NFC. It’s kind of a classic clash of philosophies on each side.
The Bengals are the team built up through the draft, being smart in free agency and kind of developing their own talent around them. They hit a home run on quarterback Joe Burrow and he was the big spark the team was missing.
On the other side you have the Los Angeles Rams, built on mercenaries. The Rams did the classic spend money in free agency and trade away the “future” for star players, such as former Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
