The Los Angeles Rams are Super Bowl champions, defeating the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 to win the franchise’s first title since the 1999 season.

Cooper Kupp caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford with 1:29 remaining, and Aaron Donald forced an incomplete pass from Joe Burrow to clinch the win for the Rams, who came into the game as the favorite and were playing on their home field at SoFi Stadium.

This was only the second time in Super Bowl history that one of the teams played on its home field. Tampa Bay won at home last year.

Donald had two of the Rams’ seven sacks in the game. Stafford finished with 283 passing yards and three touchdowns, two of which went to Kupp. Kupp, who caught eight passes for 92 yards, was named the game’s Most Valuable Player.

Tee Higgins had two touchdown catches for the Bengals, who are still looking for their first Super Bowl title. Burrow finished with 263 passing yards and a touchdown.
