The Super Bowl LVI features two the Los Angeles Rams pitted against a preseason long shot in the form of the Cincinnati Bengals. The storylines surrounding the matchup are abundant. Los Angeles packs plenty of firepower behind them. They have the better overall record and are the more consistent team of the two. That said, NitroBetting focuses on two primary weapons the Rams can utilize to get the edge.

A Dig at Cincinnati’s Offense
The Rams are known to have one of the stoutest defenses in the league. This opens up an opportunity to pressure Joe Burrow and the rest of the Bengals’ offensive line. Burrow was sacked 51 times in the regular season and is the first quarterback to reach the Super Bowl despite recording more sacks than any other quarterback in the same season. He then picked up another nine sacks against the Titans. On the bright side, the Chiefs had several attempts at a sack but were evaded by Burrow multiple times.
It could be said that the Titans defeated themselves more than the Bengals beat Tennessee. However, getting past the Rams will be a taller order for the Bengals. Los Angeles also tops the league in pass rush win rate and run stop win rate. More than that, the Rams top the league in pass rush win rate and run stop win rate which puts more pressure on the visitors. If the Bengals fail to create space for Joe Mixon and corner Joe Burrow altogether, Cincinnati’s offensive line is left with a handful of choices.
Jalen Ramsey to the Rescue
Odell Beckham Jr., Von Miller, and Matt Gay are three names expected to play crucial roles during the match. However, many overlook what Jalen Ramsey has to offer. He is a crucial cog to head coach Sean McVay’s plans. He has the physical and athletic abilities to keep up with the best players, making him an underlying threat.
Ramsey is a great lockdown player. He has been a consistent defender since the Jaguars drafted him in 2016. The cornerback signed with Los Angeles in 2019. The seven-year veteran now gets a shot at his first NFL Championship ring. Furthermore, Jalen Ramsey helped Jacksonville improve its defense. As of this season, Ramsey recorded 62 solo tackles, a forced fumble, four interceptions, and 16 passes defended.
Sunday night is all business for Ramsey. We expect him to lock in on Ja’Marr Chase and help his team secure its second Super Bowl championship and a fourth league championship.
