Madden NFL 15 Super Bowl Prediction: Seahawks Vs Patriots


Every year, the biggest event in sports is simulated by the most popular football game in sports.  Many folks were looking forward to when Madden NFL 15 would do their simulation of the 2015 Super Bowl, also known as Super Bowl 49.

The NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks are scheduled to take on the AFC Champion New England Patriots in the big game, with Seattle having the chance to become back to back Super Bowl champions!

However, Madden NFL 15 doesn’t think that the Seattle Seahawks will accomplish that feat.

The simulation that ran showed the Seattle Seahawks getting out to an early lead with some strong defense and an interception on Tom Brady that was returned for a touchdown.  But the Patriots didn’t sit idly by and let that Seattle lead stand.

In a game that went down to the wire, a touchdown pass from Brady to Edelman made the difference in the final moments of the game, making it a 28-24 final score in favor of the New England Patriots.  Quarterback Tom Brady was named the game’s Most Valuable Player.

Here is the video showing the highlights of the simulation of the 2015 Super Bowl from the official EA Sports YouTube account:

This is the 12th time that Madden has run a Super Bowl simulation.  They have a solid track record of being accurate in their predictions, being correct 8 of the 11 times so far.
