All those receptions, the two TD grabs, sparking the Rams’ game-winning drive, but it may have a been a seven-yard run for a first down, that proved to be Cooper Kupp’s biggest play of Super Bowl LVI…The run was an LA Rams’ first down, and it came on their crucial game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter…We have been telling you, if they give Thomas Hennigan, from Northwest Guilford and Appalachian State University a chance, he could become a major Cooper Kupp-like force for some NFL team…Kupp, from Eastern Washington University, and Hennigan, are very similar in how they go about their receiving business…Kupp and Hennigan are both bigger than former St. Louis Rams and Carolina Panthers receiver Ricky Proehl, but very much alike in that they are all big-play receivers, and they run for miles after the catch…It was interesting on Sunday from LA, and it will be interesting to see if Thomas Hennigan can make to the league….
INGLEWOOD, Calif. — All season, whenever the Los Angeles Rams needed a big play, it was receiver Cooper Kupp who delivered it.
And when it mattered most on Sunday night in Super Bowl LVI, it was Kupp who found a way to finally get the Rams back to the top of the NFL mountain as they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 to win the Lombardi trophy for the first time in more than 22 years.
Kupp caught the game-winning 1-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Matthew Stafford and finished with eight catches for 92 yards and two scores en route to earning the game’s Most Valuable Player award. He’s the eighth wide receiver to win Super Bowl MVP and the first since the New England Patriots’ Julian Edelman in Super Bowl LIII.
