The two sides of the NFL playoff bracket are finally converging as the Los Angeles Rams take on the Cincinnati Bengals in the Super Bowl. 

This is the second consecutive season in which the NFL has used a 14-team playoff with just one team in each conference getting a bye week.

But the bye didn’t seem to benefit the Green Bay Packers or Tennessee Titans, the No. 1 seeds who were both eliminated in the divisional round in their first playoff action.

The Bengals’ dream playoff draw played out almost exactly as we expected before taking a turn for the unexpected. 

We liked Cincinnati’s draw in the NFL playoffs from the beginning as the AFC North champs got a home playoff game against the Raiders before visiting one of the worst No. 1 seeds in recent memory in Tennessee. But the questions came after that. The Bengals would have to take their show on the road to either Kansas City or Buffalo for the AFC championship game – a game we did not think they would win no matter where it was played.

But the magic continued for Joe Burrow and company, who upset the Chiefs and punched their ticket to the Super Bowl as the No. 4 seed.

It’s hard to bet against them now after what we’ve seen.

The Bengals will face the other No. 4 seed, the Los Angeles Rams, in the Super Bowl after the Rams had a few big wins of their own. 

Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford struggled down the stretch of the regular season, throwing seven interceptions in his final three games, including two in the final game of the regular season in a loss to the rival 49ers. 

The Rams ended up losing out on the No. 2 seed and instead hosted another divisional rival, the Arizona Cardinals, in the wild-card round. After winning that rubber match vs the Cards, the Rams had to travel across the country to take on the defending champion Buccaneers in Tampa in what ended up being the likely final game of Tom Brady’s career.

The Rams then went back home to host the 49ers once again – a team they had already lost to twice this season and six times in a row. Stafford and the Rams exorcised their demons that day, finally defeating their rivals and ending up in the Super Bowl for the second time in four years.

This is the first time since the AFL-NFL merger that none of the top three seeds in either conference will play in the Super Bowl.

The Rams opened as -4 favorites for Super Bowl 56 and the line has fluctuated between -4 and -4.5 since the conference championship games.
