Madden's Super Bowl Prediction Was Wrong Yet Again

Chiefs win.


[UPDATE] Super Bowl 57 took place on Sunday, February 12, with the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 38-35. The Madden simulation predicted that the Eagles--the betting favorites for the game--would win by 31-17. Madden's annual prediction has now gotten it wrong three years in a row. In the past 10 years, the simulation has a record of 3-7.

EA Sports has released the results of its annual Super Bowl prediction. According to the simulation of the big game using current rosters from Madden NFL 23, the Philadelphia Eagles will defeat the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 31-17 to win Super Bowl LVII.

The simulation predicted that Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will complete 29 of 39 passes for 249 yards and one touchdown in the loss. Wide receiver A.J. Brown of the Eagles will catch eight passes for 114 yards and one touchdown, according to the simulation. Chris Jones of the Chiefs will have a performance in the game, picking up four tackles and two sacks, according to the simulation, which added that Eagles safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson will have five tackles and one interception.

EA's annual Super Bowl simulation is on a losing streak, as it is 2-5 for the last seven Super Bowls. Over the years, the simulation has been spookily good and terribly wrong, but past performance is not indicative of future results, so anything can happen.

In other Madden news, EA has discounted the game significantly--as it usually does during the Super Bowl week--to capitalize on the hype surrounding the big game. You can currently buy the game's standard edition for $21 on Xbox and PlayStation.
