In a first for both teams, the Cincinnati Bengals will face the Los Angeles Rams who have reached American National Football League’s pinnacle showcase, the Super Bowl. The 56th annual championship pair-up, which sees the league’s top franchises competing for the top prize in US football, will broadcast live from SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, on both ESPN (Dstv 218, Starsat 248) and ESPN2 (Dstv 219, Starsat 249) on Monday 14 February from 1:00 AM (CAT), with repeats at 7:00 and 13:00 on ESPN2 and at 19:00 on ESPN.

The Los Angeles Rams are quarterbacked by Matthew Stafford (No. 9), who’ll be running onto the field in his first year for this team after spending the previous 12 seasons of his career with the Detroit Lions. Following a standout season in Los Angeles, Stafford currently ranks as the NFL’s 12th All-Time Career Passing Leader with 323 passing touchdowns and 49,995 passing yards. He ranks 11th on the NFL’s All-Time Career Passers with 4,302 completions. All records make a very compelling case for his future consideration to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame, and this Super Bowl could play a role in this fate.

Joe Burrow (No. 9) quarterbacks for Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals selected Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft after he shot to lightning-fast success, in one of the most remarkable college seasons of all time, which culminated in a national championship for Louisiana State University. He immediately solidified the Bengals' offense upon his arrival and was in the midst of a strong rookie season when an injury took him out of play. Now, back in the game, he is likely to garner significant support for Comeback Player of the Year. By making the Super Bowl in just his second NFL season, he became the first No. 1 overall pick quarterback to lead his team to a conference championship victory in either of his first two years in the league.

One of the most anticipated sporting events on the US calendar, the Super Bowl is a truly global cultural event, as well-known as for the cutting-edge commercial spots and half time show as it is for the actual game. This year, the half time show will be performed by an ensemble line up of mega-stars including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige, bringing a total of 43 Grammy wins to football’s greatest stage.   

Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl victory led to G.O.A.T. quarterback Tom Brady becoming the first player to ever win seven NFL championships. His retirement announcement last week rocked the sporting world. Brady will be eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame in 2027, due to the five year period required after retirement.
