NFL Games of the Week
Super Bowl Rematch
The Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will face off in a rematch of the Super Bowl LVI. The Rams raised the Lombardi trophy that season, but the Bengals are coming off a strong offseason. The Rams have a lot of talent on both sides of the ball, but they will need to be careful of the Bengals’ quarterback, Joe Burrow. The Bengals have a high-powered offense, but they will need to find a way to stop the Rams’ running game. This is a game that could go either way, and it should be a close one.
