Amazing angle of Matthew Stafford’s clutch Super Bowl pass goes viral

You might not have been able to fully appreciate the degree of difficulty on Matthew Stafford’s clutch Super Bowl pass in real time. But that will likely change once you see the incredible angle that is going viral of the pass.

The Los Angeles Rams quarterback had a gutsy throw on 2nd-and-7 with the Rams trailing 20-16 in the final minutes of Super Bowl LVI. Stafford threw a no-look pass to Cooper Kupp that ended up going for 22 yards to jump-start the Rams’ scoring drive. They would find the end zone for the game-winning touchdown several plays later.

On Monday, the Rams’ official Twitter account shared an amazing angle of Stafford’s pass. In the video, you can see Stafford looking off Bengals safety Vonn Bell before throwing the other way to Kupp, catching Bell flat-footed.

It takes a lot of courage to throw a no-look pass like that in the final minutes of the Super Bowl with your team trailing and in need of a touchdown. But Stafford, in his 13th NFL season, definitely rose to the occasion.

Stafford was also playing with a heavily-taped ankle in the second half after suffering a nasty-looking injury on a sack. As such, his performance may ultimately go down as one of the gutsiest in Super Bowl history.
