Los Angeles Rams win Super Bowl LVI

Closing out the 2021-22 NFL season, the Los Angeles Rams were crowned LVI Super Bowl Champions, earning a 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, February 13.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp took home the Pete Rozelle Trophy as Super Bowl LVI’s Most Valuable Player.

Kupp was awarded the MVP trophy after recording eight receptions for 92 yards and two touchdowns, including a game-winning touchdown catch with 1:25 remaining in the fourth quarter. Kupp also added seven yards rushing.

He is also the eighth wide receiver to be named Super Bowl MVP and the first since New England wide receiver Julian Edelman in Super Bowl LIII.

Kupp joins Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Montana (1989) as the only players to win Associated Press’ Offensive Player of the Year and Super Bowl’s Most Valuable Player in the same season.

Kupp recorded 33 receptions during the 2021 postseason and surpassed Travis Kelce (31 receptions during the 2020 postseason) for the most receptions in a single postseason all-time. He also registered 478 receiving yards this postseason trailing only Larry Fitzgerald (546 receiving yards in 2008) for the most in a single postseason ever.

The award is chosen by a panel of 16 media members and fans interactively through the National Football League’s official website, NFL.com.
