Madden simulation predicted Super Bowl almost perfectly
If you don’t have time to watch the Super Bowl next year, just make sure you catch the annual Madden simulation from EA Sports ahead of time. That will tell you everything you need to know.
This year’s Madden simulation predicted the outcome of Super Bowl XLIX almost perfectly. The computer had the New England Patriots beating the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 after a go-ahead touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Julian Edelman, and that’s exactly what happened.
Not only that, but Madden also predicted that the Patriots would be trailing 24-14 in the third quarter. Aside from Malcolm Butler’s incredible game-ending interception, the video game essentially predicted the future.
If you watched the Madden simulation for the first time after the game, you’d swear you were watching the highlights. The only difference is this call from Pete Carroll made the loss sting for Seahawks fans even more than Madden predicted it would.
