LA Rams WR Cooper Kupp hit the Bengals like a whirlwind during Super Bowl LVI. He caught the game-winning touchdown pass, which gave the Rams a lead of 23-20 over the Cincinnati Bengals with just 1 minute and 25 seconds remaining.
It slightly crippled the team’s receivers when the Rams lost Odell Beckham Jr. in a non-contact injury on the left knee during the second quarter.
Kupp was able to manage when OBJ was taken out of the game and showcased all qualities that an offensive player might have; even under pressure. The athlete was named as the MVP of Super Bowl LVI against the Bengals on Sunday.
Cooper Kupp is Fired Up
WR Kupp played a prominent role for his team with 8 catches for 92 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also took a clubbing blow from a Bengals’ safety athlete in the process. QB Stafford targeted Cupp for two of the three plays.
After winning his first Super Bowl ring and earning the Super Bowl MVP, Cooper Kupp attended the post-game press conference where an interviewer asked about his feelings after winning the playoffs.
The athlete responded: “I got to play in a place where I was validated, not from anything that happened on the field but because of my worth and in God and in my father. And I’m just so incredibly thankful.”
Cooper further said: “I’m just in that moment you’re talking about. It was just so undeserving of what’s in that moment because, the people that I’ve been able to play with; people that I’ve been around and the players that I get to play with, they’re coming to work with every single day; The coaches that I get to work with to, collaborate with. It’s just been the perfect team, the perfect setup. I am just so thankful for everyone that’s been around me.”
The playoff was full of impactful and brawny performances, and Cooper was the most valuable among all. He led the league with 1,947 receiving yards, 145 catches, and 16 touchdowns during the regular season; presenting one of the best seasons a wide receiver has ever had.
