-This marks the first Super Bowl where both starting quarterbacks have a career losing record in the regular season. (Stafford: 86-95-1, Burrow: 12-13-1).
-The Cincinnati Bengals will be playing in their third-ever Super Bowl, losing both of their previous appearances in 1981 and 1988. Cincinnati is one of five franchises to play in multiple Super Bowls without ever winning.
(Buffalo and Minnesota-4, Atlanta and Carolina-2)
-The Rams will be playing in their fifth Super Bowl in franchise history. The Rams are 1-3 SU and 0-3-1 ATS in those four games.
-Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp and Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase finished first and second, respectively, in combined regular-season and playoff receiving yards. This will be the first time the top two face against each other in the Super Bowl. Kupp led the NFL with 1,947 receiving yards in 2021, and his appearance in the Super Bowl marks the fourth instance the NFL’s receiving yards leader has made it to the championship game. In each of the other three instances, their team went on to win
-This will be the second time in Super Bowl history where two quarterbacks drafted No. 1 overall will face each other in the championship game. In the previous matchup, Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos defeated Cam Newton’s Panthers 24-10 at Super Bowl 50.
-Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow needed the fewest seasons of a quarterback drafted No. 1 overall to reach the Super Bowl, completing the task after two seasons. The previous fastest was Jared Goff who made it in three seasons in 2018 with the Rams.
-Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford can join Tom Brady (2020) and Trent Dilfer (2000) as the only quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl in their first season with a new team.
-Matthew Stafford has played in 188 career games, including postseason. The only quarterback with more career games prior to his first Super Bowl start was Johnny Unitas, who played in 191 games prior to starting Super Bowl V.
-The Bengals are the first team to go 30 or more years without a playoff win and snap that streak with a Super Bowl appearance
-Super Bowl LVI will feature the youngest combined head coaching battle with the Rams’ Sean McVay (36) and the Bengals’ Zac Taylor (38). This is also the first Super Bowl where both coaches are under the age of 40. Taylor worked under McVay for two seasons as the Rams assistant wide receivers’ coach in 2017 and quarterback coach in 2018.
-The Bengals three postseason games this year have been decided by margins of seven or fewer points in each game. No NFL team has ever played (let alone, won) four games decided by seven or fewer points in one postseason.
-Cincinnati won just six games in the 2019 and 2020 seasons combined (6-25-1). That is the fewest wins in the previous two seasons prior to a Super Bowl appearance in NFL history.
-Rookie kicker for the Cincinnati Bengals Evan McPherson has made all 12 of his field-goal attempts this postseason. That ties Adam Vinatieri in 2006 for the most consecutive field goals made without missing in a single post season.
