The Cincinnati Bengals have been riding momentum all postseason long thanks to the efforts of a shutdown defense. Players like Jessie Bates III and Vonn Bell are getting a ton of credit, but don't overlook the pass-rushing unit. Defensive tackle BJ Hill is playing some of his best football lately.

The fourth-year pro has a chance to turn Super Bowl 56 on its head on Sunday night if he can get to Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford in the backfield. That reason alone makes him a name to keep an eye in the race to be named Super Bowl MVP.

BJ Hill Super Bowl MVP Odds

FanDuel Sportsbook lists Hill at +40000 to win the award, which understandably makes him a long shot option. He won't be dancing in the end zone after a touchdown or kicking a game-winning field goal. However, the idea of him wreaking havoc along the line remains a possibility.

Hill tied a career-high mark with 5.5 sacks during the regular season and has added 1.5 more to the tally across three playoff games. The NC State product also had one of the best games of his career in the AFC Championship, racking up 5 tackles and making a game-changing interception in the fourth quarter.

It's been a roller coaster year for Hill after he was traded from the New York Giants to the Bengals just prior to the start of the season. Capping it off with not only a Lombardi Trophy, but a Super Bowl MVP Award as well, would simply be icing on the cake.

Has a Defensive Tackle Ever Won Super Bowl MVP?

Hill certainly has his work cut out for him, though. Ten defensive players have been named Super Bowl MVP, but only one defensive tackle has ever earned the honors. Randy White of the Dallas Cowboys accomplished the feat back in 1978 thanks to his role in forcing eight turnovers.

This game has all the makings of one that comes down to the wire. Seeing Hill sack Stafford at the most crucial of times could allow him to lock up the award.
