Every year, EA Sports releases a simulation of the upcoming Super Bowl to promote the next edition of Madden NFL.
This year, the popular sports video game predicts that Super Bowl 52 will be a close one, with the Patriots ultimately winning 24-20, and Tom Brady winning his fifth MVP award.
It predicts Brady will manage 342 yards passing and Eagles QB Nick Foles will have 241.
And although the simulation may seem arbitrary, Madden has successfully predicted the last 10 of 14 Super Bowls. Last year, it was eerily accurate. It predicted the Patriots would come back from behind in the fourth quarter to make up a double digit deficit.
It also weirdly predicted the exact score of Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 where the Patriots won 28-24 against the Seahawks.
You might say this is concerning for anyone who’s not rooting for the Patriots. But this is probably what Philadelphia fans need to hear right now. The City Of Brotherly Love needs to go into Sunday with an attitude. Just as the Patriots seem to play better when the odds favor them, Philly just seems more authentic when all of America is rooting against it.
Full Disclosure: *The Daily Caller is a pro-Patriots office that fully recognizes and honors the historic achievements of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, and I therefore acknowledge that I run the risk of losing my job once this article goes live. It ultimately doesn’t matter because I love my team enough to let them ruin my life.*
