Super Bowl LVI | Rams vs Bengals live updates

On Sunday Joe Burrow will take the field in SoFi Stadium with one thing in mind, victory. The young QB in only his second season, has taken the Cincinnati Bengals to the cusp of a Super Bowl title for the first time in more than three decades. Who is he? Has he been here before? Let's find out.

Who is the Bengals' QB Joe Burrow?

At 25 years of age and playing in only his second season in the league, Burrow may seem a kid amongst men, but when one takes a look at the performances that he's put in during the post season and the poise with which he has done so, it's perhaps his opponents who should be concerned about the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 draft. Recently awarded the NFL's Comeback Player of the year, Burrow battled back from a left knee injury that brought a premature end to his rookie season. What was he doing before that unfortunate moment? Quite simply, Burrow was on track to complete one of the most productive starts to a career by a QB in NFL history.

From Bengals single-season passing records to NFL rookie passing marks for attempts, completions, passing yards and 300-yard games, his 264 completions were the most ever by an NFL QB through their first 10 career games. That's without mentioning his 404 pass attempts which according to his team profile, were second-most and his 2688 passing yards which were fifth. There was also the matter of five 300-yard passing games to tie the Bengals single-season record and stand third-most by a rookie in NFL history. In other words - if it wasn't obvious - the 'young buck' as Tampa Bay's Rob Gronkowski referred to him, is very good and only likely to get better.

Has Joe Burrow won a Super Bowl Ring before?

As is the case with his direct rival Rams' QB Matthew Stafford, this is actually Joe Burrow's Super Bowl debut. Of course when considering the long list of accolades and titles that he picked up before arriving in the league, one gets the feeling that winning is what Burrow does. A Heisman trophy winner - by the largest margin history - the former LSU player registered arguably the most successful single season ever by a college QB in history en route to delivering a National Championship.

How will Joe Burrow stack up against Matthew Stafford?

While Stafford at 34 years of age has literally 10 seasons more in the league than Burrow, when it comes to their matchup it's hard to pick a favorite. Having both drafted at No. 1 overall there is certainly no shortage in quality. Of course some will point to the wisdom of the ages that Stafford will undoubtedly lean on when the big game arrives. That, however, is exactly the quality that many have observed in the younger Burrow, as he has continued to show a calmness under pressure when the Bengals have needed him most. So what will it be? Experience or the brilliance of youth? If we take a look at the legendary Joe Montana, who won his first Super Bowl with just 26 starts to his name - the same as Burrow at present - then maybe it becomes a little harder to predict.
