Warren Sapp predicts a rough Super Bowl for Cincinnati Bengals' Joe Burrow

Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp predicts Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals will be in for a long afternoon during the Super Bowl LVI. The Rams have one of the most dominant pass rush in the NFL, while the Bengals don't have a strong offensive line.
Burrow has taken many hits this season and many expect that to continue when the Bengals take on the Rams at SoFi Stadium. The Rams pass rush is led by Aaron Donald and Von Miller. The Bengals offensive line will have a hard time containing Donald and Miller and protecting Burrow.
Sapp tips the Rams to beat Burrow and the Bengals
"I'll tell you what," Sapp told TMZ Sports. "I love that kid Joe Burrow, but if he can stand up from this rush of Von Miller and Aaron Donald, he'd be the greatest quarterback ever in the history of the league.
"But, I don't see it. I don't see it. They'll be all over him all game long." Burrow took nine sacks against the Tennessee Titans during the divisional round but the Bengals still won. Meanwhile, Tom Brady is expected to root for Burrow.
If the Bengals beat the Rams, Burrow will become the first player in football history to win a Heisman trophy, a national championship and a Super Bow. Recently, Burrow, Brady, Jim Grady and Larry Fitzgerald appeared on Brady's Let's Go!
Podcast. "Before we came on the air, Tom said something that gave me quite a chuckle and he probably didn't want to say it because of the sensitivity around it but I can, I'll repeat it for him. He said, he hopes you are the first person to win the Heisman Trophy, a college football championship and a Super Bowl.
He said if that happens, you should go out on top and retire," Gray revealed. It remains to be seen if Burrow can make history on Sunday.
