So says EA’s annual Super Bowl simulation, at least. If the Xbox One version of Madden NFL 15 is to be believed, the ball-obsessed QB will nab his fourth Super Bowl ring this Sunday when the New England Patriots top the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 to win Super Bowl XLIX.
According to the sim, it’ll be a nailbiter . . .
It’s coming off a bad loss, however. Last year’s Madden NFL 25 predicted the Broncos would beat the Seahawks 31-28, which was just a hair off the actual outcome of 43-8, Seahawks. Only missed it by 38 points, guys . . .
But it’s occasionally been brilliant. In 2013 it correctly picked the winner, point spread, and MVP of Super Bowl XLVII, and was two completions away from perfectly nailing 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick’s stat line. Madden was even more prescient in 2009 when it was one point off from the final score and managed to predict the exact number of receiving yards for Steelers wideout Santonio Holmes.
