Cooper Kupp joins Larry Fitzgerald in playoff history books with Super Bowl 56 touchdown

0

Cooper Kupp burst onto the scene in the 2021 season. After being a solid but unspectacular wide player for the Los Angeles Rams for the past four seasons, he posted a triple crown season, got a vote MVP and became the most dominant offensive player for the NFC Champions. In Super Bowl 56 against the Bengals, nothing changed.

Kupp, who won Offensive Player of the Year, continued his playoff dominance with a second-quarter touchdown from Matthew Stafford. He picked up a big conversion on first try earlier in the game.

Kupp’s touchdown, the second of the game for the Rams, put him in the history books alongside legendary Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Those two are the only players to catch a touchdown in four single-inning playoff games. Fitzgerald accomplished the feat in the 2008 season when he scored seven touchdowns in his first four playoff games.

Kupp entered this game with the chance to make history in many ways. He’s already done that in just the first half of the game. Los Angeles has asked a lot of its star receiver. He did nothing but deliver incredible performances.

The Rams’ powerful offense has always gone through Kupp. The connection he and Stafford made throughout their first season together is a thing of beauty. While it’s still debatable who the best wide receiver in the NFL is, Kupp has made a monstrous case in a single season by leading the league in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns. Although matching his insane stats from this season is a tall order, Kupp warned the league.
