EA Sports’ popular John Madden video game is touting itself as a great Super Bowl predictor. They boast that they have correctly predicted 9 of the last 11 big games, so naturally people were curious to see how they predict Super Bowl XLVIII will play out.
EA released video of their prediction on Monday, and the video is pretty awesome … if you’re a Broncos fan. Yes, Madden has Denver winning 31-28 in overtime. They also have Richard Sherman delivering a pick six on Peyton Manning. Can you imagine that happening? Madden has the Seahawks scoring twice to come back and making a 2-point conversion to tie the game and send it to OT, which would obviously be thrilling.
I have the Seahawks winning the game and I think it will be lower scoring, but this prediction was fun to watch.
