With 145 catches and 16 touchdowns, Cooper has been the best wide receiver this season. Cooper has played a critical role in taking the offense game of the Rams to a whole new level.
Undoubtedly the best defense cornerback in the NFL. Jalen's role seems to have changed a bit under the defense coordinator Raheem Morrison.
Joe is regarded as the core of the team, who was injured in late November 2020, returned in time for the second season, and led the Bengals to the playoffs. He also was named the Comeback Player Of The Year. Fans are expecting this young and swag quarterback to create wonder at the Superbowl.
Ja’ Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd
This trio of players gives the Bengals one of the league's best pass-catching players. This combination is sure to play a crucial role in the super bowls.
Of course, there are quite a few noticeable players but this is just a small list of them.
How did the teams get their names?
Los Angeles Rams
Ram's name was coined as a tribute to the college team from the 1930s Fordham Rams. Fordham ram was a firecracker of a team back then. Los Angeles Ram team originated in Cleveland in 1936 and then moved to Los Angeles.
The name was picked by the team founder, Paul Brown. This name was a homage to the last pro football team by the same name. Fans suggested the title-"Buckeyes", which was rejected as it was used as a homage to Ohio state. The Bengals were earlier the part of AFL but later on merged with NFL.
