The Los Angeles Rams captured their second Super Bowl championship in franchise history and first since relocating to the West Coast with a 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium.
Virtually every member of the 2021 Rams received their rings in a private ceremony this past July, including players who moved on to other teams and those who retired.
The Rams will now close out their championship celebration by raising a Super Bowl LVI banner from SoFi Stadium’s iconic canopy roof above the 500 level on the south side before their Week 1 matchup against the Buffalo Bills, via Greg Beacham of The Associated Press:
The Rams say they'll hang a Super Bowl LVI Champions banner in the rafters on the south side of SoFi right before next week's season opener. A new banner for the 1999-00 Super Bowl champs will already be in place when fans arrive Thursday.

Rams COO Kevin Demoff revealed in a letter to season ticket holders that fans who attend the opener will receive their own commemorative banner.
The Rams also plan to unveil a new banner for the 1999-00 Super Bowl champions, which will be in place before fans arrive at SoFi Stadium next Thursday.
Andrew Whitworth will lead additional festivities before kickoff. Highlights from last season will be displayed on the Infinity Field screen, and fans will have the opportunity to participate in an augmented reality experience.
The ceremony is set to begin at 4:50 so fans attending the game are being advised to arrive extra early to account for traffic and parking delays.
