A time honored tradition has taken place. With every Super Bowl, there’s the official use of Madden to attempt to predict the results. EA has done it for Super Bowl LIV, and the results could be a good omen for the Kansas City Chiefs. In the simulation that EA ran, the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 35 to 31.
A few other details about EA’s fake Madden Super Bowl 2020 match-up were revealed, in the event real-life ends up mimicking virtual reality. In the Madden 20 version of the game, the star of the game ended up being Patrick Mahomes, though Damien Williams and Travis Kelce also ended up making some touchdowns. (Mahomes was at his best, getting four touchdowns.) Though the 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo didn’t perform too badly either, as he ended up with two touchdowns during the game.
Whether Madden 20 will be accurate will be seen soon on February 2, 2020. The recent streak has been a bit spotty. Madden 19 said that the Los Angeles Rams would beat the New England Patriots 30 to 27, but in real life the Patriots won 13 to 3. For Super Bowl LII, it said the Patriots would beat the Philadelphia Eagles 24 to 20, but the Eagles won 41 to 33.
But, we’ll always remember the time Madden almost got everything right. That’s what happened with Madden 15 and Super Bowl XLIX. It said the Patriots would beat the Seattle Seahawks 28 to 24, and it was right. It also came very close with its predictions regarding Tom Brady’s performance.
