Super Bowl LVI is upon us with several makings of a classic, starting with the clash of two elite quarterbacks in Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow. Stafford has brought the Rams to the brink of completing the job Jared Goff couldn’t quite finish three years ago in SB LIII. The Bengals’ Burrow is riding a spectacular crest in just his second pro season, completing an NFL-high 70.4% of his passes, and can take the franchise to unprecedented glory with a win. The Bengals are one of 12 franchises to never win a Super Bowl title. Neither team has had an easy road — the Rams and Bengals both nipped their Divisional Round opponents by a three-point margin, then slipped past conference championship foes by three points, as well. It’s been more about survival than dominance.
Here are four things to watch in Super Bowl LVI:
NFL Research: Stafford has the NFL’s best completion percentage (72.0), yards per attempt (8.7) and passer rating (125.9) in the fourth quarter this year, including playoffs.
Next Gen Stat of the matchup: The Rams’ pass rush has intensified in the postseason, improving from a regular-season pressure rate of 26.6 to 31.7 in the playoffs. Von Miller (14 postseason pressures) has been a big part of that surge.
