Super Bowl LVI is upon us and the lights will rise over SoFi Stadium on Sunday, February 13, 2022 when the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Los Angeles Rams with the NFL championship on line.
For whichever team wins the Super Bowl a first will occur. The Bengals have never won the Super Bowl in their 54-year history despite two previous attempts.
The Los Angeles Rams have also never won the Super Bowl albeit they have won it before in their franchise history. Let us explain:
The franchise began 86 years ago as the Cleveland Rams based out of Cleveland, Ohio. The team moved to Los Angeles in 1946 and played in the LA Memorial Coliseum before moving to Anaheim Stadium in 1980. Prior to the AFL-NFL merger, the Rams franchise won the championship two separate times in 1945 and 1951, but that was before the birth of the Super Bowl. Following the 1994 season, the Rams moved to St. Louis where they won the Super Bowl in 1999 against the Tennessee Titans in what was known as "The Greatest Show on Turf."

The Rams moved back to Los Angeles following the 2015 season, and appeared in Super Bowl LIII against the New England Patriots, but were held without a touchdown in 13-3 loss to Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
So even though the Rams franchise has won three championships in their history, they have never technically won the Super Bowl as the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams will also seek to be the first NFL franchise to win the Super Bowl since the then-Los Angeles Raiders did it 1984.
Most of the Rams 53-man roster have never won a Super Bowl with the exception of running back Sony Michel and linebacker Von Miller. Needless to say, the players are hungry to take home a Lombardi Trophy.
