Ben Skowronek is a Super Bowl champion. The former Notre Dame wide receiver caught two passes on five targets for 12 yards and had one tackle in the Los Angeles Rams’ 23-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at SoFi Stadium. The Rams are the second team in NFL history to win the Super Bowl at their home stadium, joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2021).

Skowronek, a 2021 seventh-round pick by Los Angeles, is the 45th former Irish player to win a Super Bowl. He’s the first former Notre Dame player to capture a Super Bowl ring since 2017 when Michael Floyd, who was not on the active roster and was injured, won with the New England Patriots.

Skowronek caught a five-yard pass from Matthew Stafford in the first quarter. He then tipped a pass that led to an interception by Chidobe Awuzie in the second frame. Skowronek immediately tackled Awuzie after a one-yard return. The Rams defense then held the Bengals to a 38-yard Evan McPherson field goal on the ensuing drive.

Skowronek took a short pass to the right for seven yards on the Rams’ next drive, which ended in a 41-yard Matt Gay field goal to trim the deficit to 20-16 at halftime.

Former Notre Dame defensive lineman Khalid Kareem, a 2020 fifth-round pick, had two tackles (one solo) for the Bengals.
