The 2022 Super Bowl will pit the Los Angeles Rams against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at SoFi Stadium. The two starting quarterbacks will make their Super Bowl debuts, but took very different journeys to get there. Both were No. 1 overall picks, but Joe Burrow made history by becoming the first quarterback to go No. 1 and take his team to a Super Bowl in the first two seasons. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford spent his first 12 seasons in Detroit, where he never won a playoff game, but he’s now led the Rams to the big game in his first season in Los Angeles.
When is the Super Bowl 2022? Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday. Los Angeles is a four-point favorite in the latest 2022 Super Bowl odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under is 48.5.
