EA Sports has yet again run another simulation of the Super Bowl on Madden, and Eagles fans will not be happy about the outcome.
According to Madden NFL 18, the New England Patriots will beat the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII, 24-20, after a dramatic final two minutes.
The simulation shows Patriots QB Tom Brady fumbling the ball with 1:44 left in the game, giving the Eagles one last opportunity to score. However, a Nick Foles pass to Alshon Jeffrey in the end zone is batted away by Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore, securing the win for the Patriots.
Madden has accurately predicted 10 of the last 14 Super Bowl winners, but before Eagles fans get too depressed, in the last seven years it’s only predicted four winners correctly.
The Patriots are current 4.5-point favorites in Las Vegas, with an over/under of 48, which falls in line quite neatly with Madden NFL 18‘s prediction.
We’ll find out this Sunday, February 4th, when Super Bowl LII airs on NBC at 3:30 p.m. PT.
Madden NFL 18 is available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
