LA Rams reign supreme in Super Bowl thriller

It’s one of the biggest sporting spectacles of the globe, and on Monday (AEDT) it lived up to all the hype – the Los Angeles Rams won a thriller, 23-20, against the Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium in southern California.

Super Bowl LVI was watched by more than 100 million fans in the US alone, and millions more around the world.

The match was a clash between two underdog teams – before this season the Bengals hadn’t won a playoff game since 1991, while the Rams franchise had only won the Super Bowl once before this year (in 2000).

Meanwhile, Gen X and Millennial music fans were treated with stand-out performances from rap and hip hop royalty Dr Dre, Mary J Blige, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent.

Today on Please Explain, The Sydney Morning Herald’s chief sports writer Andrew Webster joins Bianca Hall to talk about the worldwide phenomenon that is the Super Bowl.
