Overview: This article presents vital stats and predictions about the Superbowl LVI 2022 and also includes information regarding the artists who will be performing at the event this year.
Superbowl is the annual playoff championship game of the National Football League (NFL). It has replaced the NFL Championship game since 1996. The winning team is awarded the Vince Lombardi trophy. The trophy has been named in honor of NFL coach, Vince Lombardi who led his team, the Green Bay Packers to victories in the first two Superbowl games.
Superbowl LVI is the upcoming championship game of the NFL for the 2021 season. The game arrives on 13th February, 2022, Sunday, with all eyes fixed at the SoFi stadium, Los Angeles – the home of the Rams and the Chargers.
The Rams vs Bengals
The Los Angeles Rams will face off against the Cincinnati Bengals this year. Superbowl LVI marks the first time the two teams will face each other.
While the LA Rams have star players like Aaron Donald, Matthew Stafford and Jalen Ramsey, the Bengals flaunt players like Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase who have been featured on the list of 10 most clutch players of the NFL.
Both teams were on the No.4 seeds in the NFL playoff bracket making Superbowl LVI the first game to not have one of the top three seeds.
Madden picks the Bengals as winner this year
The Sunday game is expected to be tight with Madden NFL predicting the Cincinnati Bengals to win by three points. Though Madden’s accuracy rates have fallen over the years it has still managed to be 61% correct overall. According to the simulation, the Bengals are expected to score first with a touchdown pass to Ja’Marr Chase and Sony Michel making a four – yard run to equalise it.
The Rams are then expected to take over the lead from halftime followed by an intense, nail – biting fourth quarter.
A final blow by Joe Burrow is expected to give the Cincinnati Bengals their first ever Superbowl title with a final score of 24 – 21.
But hey, Rams fans, don’t get disheartened just yet. Madden’s prediction was proven wrong last year when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Kansas City Chiefs by a whopping 10 points!
Halftime stage performances
Fans can expect some massive hip – hop flavour during the halftime show at Inglewood on Sunday. Rap legends like Dr. Dre and Eminem will perform alongside other stars like Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg and Mary J. Blige.
The halftime show will most likely start around 8 pm local time. It is expected to last for about 15 minutes. Fans can expect to hear songs like ‘Still D.R.E’, ‘Nuthin’ but a G’ Thang’ and Snoop Dogg’s infamous ‘Gin & Juice’.
While the Superbowl has millions of fans all across the globe, some of them consist of infamous folks; from the music industry to Hollywood. Fans can expect to see celebs like Niall Horan and Terry Crews cheering for their teams from the stands. After all, the first ever Superbowl was played out 55 years ago in the shadow of the Hollywood sign.
