In just a few days, all eyes will be on the small screen as Super Bowl LI kicks off in Houston, Texas as the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons compete for the title of Super Bowl champion, with EA’s annual Super Bowl Simulation giving an early prediction on the victor.
EA’s Super Bowl Simulation with Madden NFL 17 has revealed its annual predictions for the upcoming Big Game, with the ultimate prediction going to a win for the New England Patriots on Sunday, with a final score of 27 – 24. The predictions also call for the Patriots’ Tom Brady to stand as the first NFL quarterback to ever win five Super Bowl games and to earn the title of Super Bowl MVP, to become the most decorated player in Super Bowl history.
The Madden Super Bowl prediction has become an annual tradition ahead of the Big Game each year, and has had surprisingly accurate guesses in the past. In particular, for the 2015 Super Bowl (and the last time that the Patriots played) the predictions correctly guessed not only the game’s final score, but also called that the Patriots would overcome a 10-point, 3rd quarter deficit, and also predicted accurately (within three yards) the total yardage of Julian Edelman.
Madden NFL 17 is available now for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 – you can check out the highlights from the Madden Super Bowl prediction below:
