The Los Angeles Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 on Sunday to claim their franchise's second Super Bowl triumph.

The Rams defeated the Bengals despite a late fourth-quarter comeback led by Cooper Kupp and Aaron Donald.

The Rams won it after wasting a 10-point lead early on and collapsing into a 10-point deficit. The team triumphed by rallying in the fourth quarter with a 79-yard game-winning touchdown drive led by the team's two stars - quarterback Matthew Stafford and receiver Kupp.

Stafford confidently threw three touchdown passes and a defense that was spearheaded by Donald and Von Miller sacked Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow seven times as the Rams won the Super Bowl in their home stadium for the second consecutive season.

Kupp was voted the game's MVP after hauling in eight passes for 92 yards and two touchdowns.

The Rams will have a chance to become the first team since the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005 to win consecutive Super Bowls next season.

The victory represents the Rams' first in the Super Bowl since 1999 and their first under Sean McVay, while the Bengals earned their first Super Bowl appearance since 1988.

Stafford finished the game with 283 passing yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. He is the sixth player in NFL history to throw for at least 6,000 yards in a single season.

With 10:15 remaining in the third quarter, Cincinnati led 20-13 after Evan McPherson converted a field goal. However, that would be the Bengals' final touchdown.

Matt Gay's 41-yard field goal cut the Rams' lead to four points. Neither team scored until Stafford rallied the offense and led them to a touchdown on their final drive.

Los Angeles went all-in this season on a potential Super Bowl run, surrendering draft capital for veteran players. They bolstered an attack that already featured Kupp by bringing in former Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in the middle of the regular season.

Wins like this one validate the Rams' personnel decisions, which included bringing in players like Donald and Stafford, who were part of a highly publicized deal.

Cincinnati fans erupted for the most of the game, despite the fact that the Rams were playing in their home stadium.

The roars intensified in the second half, probably aided by an electrifying halftime performance featuring a slew of legendary hip-hop musicians, led by Southern California native Dr. Dre.
