We are just a few hours away from the kickoff for Super Bowl LVI, can you believe Martin Prado Jersey it? Seems like just yesterday we were debating who the best team in the AFC North was. Not many had the , but here they are, one win away from glory. The were an interesting story, too. With the trade for quarterback , expectations for the 2021 season went through the roof. While there were ups and downs, the former Detroit Lion is just one win away from cementing his legacy.These are the two teams that emerged on the other end of the grueling 17-game regular-season slate. All of the coaches and players deserve credit for that. From top to bottom, both the Bengals and Rams have talented rosters, but which position groups from these two teams are the most elite? Which position groups are the most lacking?Below, we will rank the Super Bowl position groups from worst to first. A couple things to note first: The Rams pa s-rushers are included in the Rams defensive line section, and then postseason performances were something we relied on in creating this list. Credit to the CBS Sports research team for helping provide the information found in this piece. Let's jump in.14. Bengals offensive lineThe Bengals offensive line has jeopardized Cincy's magical run along the way. Joe Burrow has been sacked a total of 12 times in the postseason, which brings his sack total up to 63 on the year. This includes a record-tying nine sacks taken against the Titans, which easily should have been at least 11. (Burrow took two sacks that did not count.) While Burrow was sacked just once against the Chiefs, he spent a good amount of the time dodging linemen and pulling off miraculous escapes. There's no doubt the Bengals are trying to game-plan to help this unit contain one of the best defensive fronts in the NFL. 13. Rams linebackers headlines this group. He had a career year with 91 tackles, six tackles for lo s, six pa ses defensed and two interceptions. He's one of three linebackers this season in the NFL to record at least 90 tackles, five tackles for lo s, five pa ses defensed and two interceptions. He's third on the team with 14 playoff tackles.12. Rams special teamsThe Rams have a solid special teams unit, as made his first Pro Bowl this year and has made four total. Gay is 9-for-9 on extra points and 7-for-9 on field goals in the postseason.11. Bengals special teamsAll hail . He has not mi sed a kick this postseason, going 12-for-12 on field goals and 4-for-4 on extra points. He has the -- and he's a rookie! He's coming off of two game-winning field goals in the divisional and championship rounds. Can he make it three? 10. Bengals linebackersI love this Bengals linebacking corps, but it was tough figuring out where to place them. has been an absolute monster. He led the Bengals with four interceptions in the regular season and made the game-saving pick against the Titans off a deflection. He led the team in tackles this year with 100, and no one has been better at taking down ball-carriers in the postseason, as Wilson has notched 30 tackles in three games. has been big as well, as he's recorded 21 combined tackles in the playoffs and made the game-winning interception against the to seal Cincinnati's first playoff win in 31 years.9. Bengals secondaryThis unit has made big plays all postseason. In the first two playoff games, it allowed Wei-Yin Chen Jersey a touchdown apiece to and . Cincy's defensive backs made Tannehill look especially silly, as he threw three interceptions that resulted in the No. 1 seed getting upset in dramatic fashion. An interception has saved the Bengals in each round, including against the Chiefs, as and teamed up for a nice pick of in overtime.The most shocking stat of probably this entire article: All three of Cincy's final defensive plays in the playoffs have been interceptions. Talk about clutch. 8. Rams secondary had another big year, as he led the Rams in pa ses defensed with 16 and tied for the team lead in interceptions with four. He was the only player in the NFL with 15 or more pa ses defensed and five or more tackles for lo s. hasn't played in the playoffs just yet due to injury, but he has a Andre Dawson Jersey chance to suit up for the Super Bowl. He was the L.A. player Ramsey tied with for most interceptions this season. has been solid in Rapp's absence, as he's fourth on the team in postseason tackles with 13. Getting Rapp back will be big, but this unit could be higher on this list if was healthy and playing. and the other corners have tough a signments this week as well.7. Rams offensive lineThe Rams offensive line finished seventh in the NFL . It's truly incredible that is still one of the best left tackles in the NFL at age 40. Remember after the Super Bowl LIII lo s when he gave that wild quote saying ? It didn't sound like he would come back, but he did and he's still playing at a high level. This offensive line as a unit wasn't always dominant in the regular season, getting out-physicaled on occasion, but it's still solid. Stafford has been sacked five times in three postseason games compared to Burrow's 12. 6. Bengals defensive lineThere was concern for this unit when went down with a season-ending injury during Super Wild Card Weekend, but these linemen haven't mi sed a beat. and have both made big plays inside while and have been effective on the edge. Hubbard leads the team in postseason sacks with three, with two coming last week against the Chiefs. Hendrickson, of course, turned out to be a huge free-agency addition, as he set a Bengals single-season record with 14 sacks. He hasn't fallen off in the playoffs, either, as he has 2.5 sacks and four QB hits.

He has 1.5 sacks and six QB hits this postseason after leading the Rams in sacks with 12.5 and tackles for lo s with 19 in the regular season. was also a big pickup for this defensive front, and he has recorded at least one sack in six out of his past seven games. His counterpart, , is an underrated pa s-rusher, and he has 20 combined sacks in his last two seasons. Additionally, is tied for the team lead in postseason tackles with 16, and could return for the Super Bowl as well. This is one of the best units in the NFL.4. Bengals QBBengals fans will be mad to see Burrow listed below Stafford, but Stafford has more yards, touchdowns, a better completion rate and fewer interceptions in the postseason. I Jose Fernandez Jersey don't want to take away from Burrow's rise to NFL stardom, especially since he's done it without much protection. Burrow has already tied Boomer Esiason for the most playoff wins by a Bengals quarterback with three. He's an effective deep-ball pa ser, as Burrow led the NFL with 12 completions of 50-plus yards this season, and had the most pa sing touchdowns of 30-plus yards with 16. He did all this despite being sacked 51 times, which led the NFL and set a franchise record. Burrow is here to stay, and he can take his stardom to another level with a win Sunday.3. Rams QB Matthew StaffordI gue s that trade with the worked out. Stafford tied a career-high with 41 pa sing touchdowns in the regular season, and went a career-best 12-5 as the starter. There were times in the regular season where his play dipped, but he's clearly rebounded to get this team to this point. In the playoffs, Stafford has pa sed for six touchdowns and just one interception while completing 72% of his pa ses. He and Kupp saved the day against the Buccaneers to set up the game-winning field goal in the divisional round, and he helped the Rams score 13 unanswered points in the fourth quarter against the 49ers after scoring just seven points in the first three quarters. There's no doubt Stafford has stepped up as of late, and after the many sad years with the Lions, you can feel as though he's been waiting for this week his entire life.2. Rams WRs, RBs, TEsThe Rams' weapons are headlined by . We don't have enough room to break down all that he accomplished this year, and he should be in the MVP conversation as he became the first player since 2005 to lead the NFL in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. He's just the fourth player since 1970 to achieve this, joining Jerry Rice (1990), Sterling Sharpe (1992) and (2005). He already has four receiving touchdowns this postseason, which is a Rams playoff record. His 13 games of at least 100 receiving yards is an , and he dominated in all areas, whether it was working Miami Marlins Jersey the middle of the field or beating defensive backs downfield. There's not many stats I can give you about . that will amaze you since he played in just eight regular season games for L.A., but there's no longer any doubt about him still being a legitimate star. He has 19 receptions this postseason, which already ranks third-most in Rams history. OBJ could be hitting his stride at the right time, as he caught nine pa ses for 113 yards vs. the in the NFC Championship. Both were postseason career-highs. The underrated wideout of this group is , who finished second on the team with 802 receiving yards and six touchdowns this season. Sure, he's never had a 100-yard receiving game, but he's a talented route runner who will burn you downfi
