Minnesota Vikings teammates Patrick Peterson and Justin Jefferson congratulated their fellow LSU football alums on getting to Super Bowl 56.

A pair of Minnesota Vikings in Patrick Peterson and Justin Jefferson congratulated their fellow LSU football alums on reaching Super Bowl 56.

With the Cincinnati Bengals representing the AFC and the Los Angeles Rams representing the NFC, that means former LSU stars like Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase of the Bengals and Odell Beckham Jr. of the Rams will be playing for the NFL‘s ultimate prize. More interestingly, Andrew Whitworth is in the twilight of his career with the Rams having first played for the Bengals.

Here is Peterson’s shoutout on social media to his Bayou Bengal brothers.

And here is Jefferson echoing Peterson’s sentiment with his own shoutout of a tweet.

No matter who wins the game in two Sundays, it will be the first Super Bowl championship of Beckham, Burrow, Chase and Whitworth’s careers. For Beckham, this helps his outside shot at Canton a ton. When it comes to Whitworth, a Lombardi Trophy almost ensures he will get in eventually. As for Burrow and Chase, their illustrious NFL careers are just getting started.

While these may not be the two biggest brands playing in the Super Bowl, there is a great deal of intrigue about this game. Los Angeles may be a slight favorite, but that has not stopped the Bengals from winning two games on the road. Though many of the Rams from the 2018 NFC Championship team are still there, this is completely untrodden territory for the Bengals.

Either way, at least two former Bayou Bengals of note will become first-time Super Bowl champs.
