Throughout the last six Super Bowls, only one NFL running back has recorded a 100-yard game. That was – perhaps somewhat surprisingly – Damien Williams against the 49ers in Super Bowl 54.

It’s no secret that running backs aren’t the go-to offensive engine that they once were in the days of yore. Still, Super Bowl 56 will feature an impressive stable of explosive playmakers from both the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals.

And yes, you can and should bet on them. 

Rams head coach Sean McVay is well-known for his ground game, yet big plays in the passing game have directed much of the focus on quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Cooper Kupp

As for the Bengals, Joe Mixon was slamming linebackers to the turf long before Ja’Marr Chase was added to the mix, and there’s plenty of reason he’ll continue to do so this weekend.
