RamsIn Super Bowl 56 the offenses are used. The Los Angeles Rams lead the Cincinnati Bengals 13-10 in the second quarter with all three touchdowns through the air. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford connected with a 17-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in the first quarter and an 11-yarder to Cooper Kupp in the second. A poor stop caused the Rams to miss the extra point attempt after Kupp's TD to hold the 13-3. From NFL games to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day. The Bengals answered the Rams' first goal just before the end of the first quarter with a field goal from Evan McPherson. And then, with a little trickery, Bengals running back Joe Mixon threw out a touchdown pass to wide receiver Tee Higgins from six yards to make the 13-10. Playing at their home stadium, the Rams are looking to win their first Super Bowl title in 22 years when the team was based in St. Louis. The kick-off temperature at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California was a balmy 81 degrees, but not a record for the warmest Super Bowl ever. The Bengals almost answered the Rams' first touchdown with one of their own in the final minute of the first quarter. Despite having to settle for a 29-yard field goal from Evan McPherson, the Bengals' result was set up by a 46-yard pass from quarterback Joe Burrow to rookie wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase. Working against veteran Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, Chase worked his way down the touchline to pull off a spectacular one-handed catch. Absolutely ridiculous doing this in the Super Bowl as a rookie. There are so many different potential storylines for this year's Super Bowl, from the quarterback fight to the coaching showdown between former teacher and student. Perhaps three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald, taking on the Bengals' maligned line, will make the difference in the game. Or could star wideouts Ja'Marr Chase, Cooper Kupp, or Odell Beckham Jr. steal the show? USA TODAY Sports' NFL Editors and Writers share their insight into the pivotal story of Super Bowl 56. The calm before the storm at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, where the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals played in Super Bowl 56 compete against each other. Sunday will serve as a showcase for SoFi Stadium, owner Stan Kroenke's $5 billion home for the Los Angeles Aries. But the history and impact of SoFi Stadium is complex, as some heavily criticized tactics paved the way for the Inglewood, California project. Read more from USA TODAY Sports' Josh Peter on how the stadium has caused distress for thousands of residents. Blige and Dr. Dre attend a press conference for the Super Bowl 56 halftime show. The Super Bowl is more than just the biggest football game of the year. This year, a slew of hip-hop heavyweights led by N. rappers Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Eminem, along with "queen of hip-hop soul" Mary J. Blige joins Dre for the performance, as announced, a nearly 4-minute trailer released last month. But that's the Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium, where the same brand of beer costs $17 for the same size can at Sunday's game between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals. Other items at the concession stands on Super Bowl Sunday were associated with a similar sticker shock: SoFi Stadium had the most expensive hot dogs and beer in the NFL in 2021, according to the Team Marketing Report's 2021 NFL Fan Cost Index. As the home team in Super Bowl 56 — despite playing at the Rams' SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles — the Cincinnati Bengals wear their black jersey and white shorts with orange stripes. The black jersey is part of the Bengals' standard uniform when they play at Paul Brown Stadium. The Rams wear their white jerseys with blue numbers. With football's biggest day of the year comes parties, fandom, betting and - of course - Super Bowl squares.

Odell Beckham Jr. #3 of the Los Angeles Rams warms up before the NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers at SoFi Stadium on January 30, 2022 in Inglewood, California. LOS ANGELES -- As Odell Beckham Jr. aims for his first championship ring, it's jarring to think he's no better than the third-best wide receiver playing in Super Bowl 56 -- at least based on how the 2021 season has played out. But players like Los Angeles Rams Offensive Player of the Year Cooper Kupp and Cincinnati Bengals Offensive Rookie of the Year Ja'Marr Chase are a long way from converging on the still vibrant legacy that OBJ somehow in just created eight NFL seasons. It was evident this week that there is a genuine peace in Beckham, 29, who exuded remarkable confidence while seeming fully aware of his august place in the league's pantheon. "Knowing the responsibility I have to set a standard, knowing that some of them look up to me, is why I feel the way I am now rather than the 23-year-old me ' says Beckham. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow looked sharp as he boarded the bus with his team ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl 56 match against the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium. He wore a grey-and-black suit with tiger stripes and a black hat. NFL Network co-host Rich Eisen compared Burrow's pregame hat to that of Walter White's Breaking Bad alter ego. The Bengals also shared a video of Burrow's locker upon arriving at SoFi Stadium. USA TODAY Sports has been super-charged coverage of the Super Bowl for the past two weeks.
