As the designated home team for the Super Bowl, the Bengals were given the choice of what combination they wanted to wear first. Their opponent, the Los Angeles Rams have not announced their uniform combination but will not be wearing their blue primary jerseys. The Rams have a bone-colored secondary jersey and a white alternate.

The Bengals’ combination is the same pairing the team wore for the Wild Card Weekend win over the Las Vegas Raiders. The past two weekends the Bengals wore their white secondary jerseys, white pants with black stripes, and black socks as the designated road team in the AFC Divisional and Championship rounds.
