Madden simulations can be eerily accurate. If that ends up being the case for this Super Bowl LI simulation, we’re in for one hell of a game Sunday night.
Our simulation has the game being decided in overtime, which has never happened in Super Bowl history. It’s all because of a brilliant touchdown drive led by none other than Tom Brady with one minute left in the fourth quarter.
With the score tied at 28, the Patriots got the ball first in OT. They finished the drive with a field goal to take a three-point lead. The Falcons responded with what looked to be a promising drive before Matt Ryan threw an interception, ultimately costing Atlanta the game.
Here’s how it all went down…
Final Score: Patriots – 31, Falcons – 28.
The Patriots are favored by three points over the Falcons, so this simulation definitely isn’t unrealistic. Of course, OT would be insane, but can you really rule it out in this matchup?
Our simulations of the conference championship games correctly predicted both winners, so it’s time to get excited if you’re a Pats fan.
