Two quarterbacks who were drafted No. 1 overall, the Rams‘ Matthew Stafford and the Bengals‘ Joe Burrow, will square off when Los Angeles and Cincinnati collide in the 2022 Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium. Stafford, now 33-years-old, was taken No. 1 by Detroit in the 2009 NFL Draft and traded to Los Angeles last offseason. Burrow, now 25, was selected by Cincinnati with the first pick in 2020. Only once has the Super Bowl featured starting quarterbacks who were drafted No. 1: Super Bowl 50 between Peyton Manning (Broncos) and Cam Newton (Panthers).
Kickoff is 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 13. Los Angeles is a 4.5-point favorite in the latest 2022 Super Bowl odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under is 48.5.
