The championship capped a triumphant return to Los Angeles for the Rams, which won its only other Super Bowl as the St. Louis Rams in 2000.
The Rams rallied for a late touchdown to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, 23-20, marking the second straight year a team won the Super Bowl on its home field.
The Rams needed more than 59 minutes to seal the victory in Super Bowl LVI, with Cooper Kupp, the game's most valuable player, catching a short touchdown pass from quarterback Matthew Stafford with 1.25 left to play. That put the Rams on top - again - and for the final time.
"I'm so proud of this group," said Sean McVay, the Rams head coach in a post-game interview.
The team also added veteran linebacker Von Miller in November, who helped defensive tackle Aaron Donald pressure Cincinnati. Donald stopped Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow on the game's last drive to cap the win.
California love The game's halftime show, at times, felt like an homage to golden era of West Coast rap, with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre performing the Tupac Shakur song "California Love" — fitting for Los Angeles, where the Rams had previously played for five decades before decamping for St. Louis.
The Los Angeles Rams won't have to travel far to enjoy a celebratory Super Bowl victory parade.
NPR television critic Eric Deggans called the show "the most Black-centered halftime show in Super Bowl history."
Los Angeles Rams come back to win Super Bowl LVI 23-20 at home
This marked the fifth time the Rams have appeared in the Super Bowl. The first time was in 1980, when they lost to Pittsburgh. Until Sunday night, their most recent appearance had been in 2019, when they lost to New England. However, when the franchise was based in St. Louis from 1995-2015, they went to the big game twice: winning in 2000 against Tennessee and losing in 2002 to New England.
