Rams franchise legend Kurt Warner and family members including wife Brenda were among those in attendance at Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, watching as Matthew Stafford led the team to a thrilling 23-20 victory over Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals.
The former grocery bagger turned football superstar and star of the surprise box office hit movie ‘American Underdog’ offered advice to Stafford before the game, and it paid off in a big way as he threw for 283 yards and three touchdowns, along with two interceptions.
“You still have to play on Sunday afternoon; nothing is given,” Warner said to Stafford, advising him against taking the Bengals lightly.
He also told Stafford to ride the wave of the game, which included lots of ups and downs as the former MVP predicted.
“Usually the team that does that the best (at that) comes out on top,” Warner said according to WHO13.com.
Warner, who led the Rams to a 2000 Super Bowl victory at the Georgia Dome over the Tennessee Titans and won two league MVPs, was expected to participate in a flyover of SoFi Stadium in an F-16 jet before the game, as the pictures below from the Defense Visual Information Distribution Service show.
