Super Bowl 56 started off badly for the Bengals and it has nothing to do with the score.
The Rams picked tails to start the game and it came up heads. The Bengals elected to defer so the Rams opened the game with the ball.
The last seven years, the Super Bowl team that has won the pre-game coin toss has gone on to lose the game. The last team to win the coin toss and win the game was the Seattle Seahawks at Super Bowl 48 when they correctly called tails and then proceeded to destroy the Broncos.
The city of Cincinnati hasn’t claimed a championship in any of the five major sports in 30 years. A coin toss win is not going to deter this fan base that has been suffering for decades.
Rght now, the Rams hold a double-digit lead, but we seen what happened with the Chiefs after they had a 21-3 lead in the AFC Championship game.
It’s not over until it’s over.
