The time has come: Our Super Bowl LVI predictions are locked and loaded, as we now know who’s going to take on So-Fi Stadium for the biggest game of the season.

Super Bowl LVI predictions

It feels impossible not to root for both of these teams. They both play tough defense but their explosive offenses are what’s led them all the way here. In reality, it’s just sad one of those QBs has to go home empty-handed after an MVP-caliber season.

So, for those wondering where to watch Super Bowl LVI, we strongly encourage you to gather with some friends, grab a couple of drinks, and take a look at our Super Bowl 2022 picks to put some extra excitement into the ultimate game of the year.

Matthew Stafford throws for 400 yards and 4 scores

The Bengals’ run defense has been stout and solid all year long. With Cam Akers dealing with a shoulder injury and Sony Michel‘s inefficiency, we expect Matthew Stafford to shoulder most of the load for the offense. That’s not great news for a pass defense that ranked 26th in the league this season.

       

We expect Matthew Stafford to go over nearly every single prop for this game. Contrary to what most Super Bowl 2022 predictions could state, we expect him to have a performance for the ages and one of the best games of his career, throwing for over 400 yards and at least 4 touchdowns.

Eli Apple gets burned all day, gets game-changing interception

Eli Apple has talked a big game on social media lately, yet he’s failed to back up that talk on the gridiron. Other than his crucial stop on Tyreek Hill in the second quarter, the Kansas City Chiefs burned him all day long in man-to-man and shell coverage as well.

Apple has become one of the biggest villains in the league and having to deal with Odell Beckham Jr or Cooper Kupp won’t do much to help his case. But given his recent luck, we still expect him to be on the winning side of a major interception and a potential momentum-changing play.

Von Miller sacks Joe Burrow twice

The Bengals’ biggest concern for this game has to be the offensive line. They allowed nine sacks against the Tennesse Titans but gave Joe Burrow way better protection in the AFC Championship Game. Even so, they’ll have to deal with the best front seven in the NFL now.

Von Miller has made a name for himself for his outstanding performances when the season is on the line. He already knows what it takes to win at that stage, which is why we expect him to sack Burrow at least twice and force a fumble lost as well.

       

Ja’Marr Chase puts up 100+ yards and a score on Jalen Ramsey

Ja’Marr Chase hasn’t stopped breaking records since entering the league. Once doubted after multiple drops in the preseason, he set marks for most receiving yards in a single game by a rookie, the Bengals single-season franchise receiving record, and the Bengals record for most receiving yards in the playoffs as well.

We expect his incredible rookie season to finish the same way it went. Jalen Ramsey has shut down some of the best wideouts in the world more than once. But Chase is strong and physical enough to bully him on short routes and sneaky enough to dazzle him with his tantalizing route-running.

Joe Burrow leads the Bengals to first-ever Super Bowl win

The boldest of all our Super Bowl 2022 picks is that the Cincinnati Bengals will upset the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams are 4-point favorites with the game total set at 48.5. However, that projection seems too conservative after looking at these offenses.

We expect the Rams to come out hungry and aggressive right out of the gate. We even think they’ll have a two-touchdown lead at some point in the game. Then, Zac Taylor’s adjustments and the Bengals’ resiliency will lead them to yet another epic comeback. Burrow will set up Evan McPherson for a field goal as the clock expires and Cincy wins 33-30.
