So, did you watch the NFL’s virtual Pro Bowl on Sunday? They did it using Madden NFL 21 because of the pandemic. I’m not sure why playing the Pro Bowl would have been any different than the games that were held over the past 20 weeks or so, but whatever. The real Pro Bowl usually blows for anyone over the age of 10 anyway.
This year the NFL had Snoop Dogg, Deshaun Watson, Derrick Henry, and Keyshawn Johnson competing for the AFC, with Bubba Wallace, Marshawn Lynch, Kyler Murray, and Jamal Adams playing for the NFC. Spoiler: Kyler Murray was the game’s MVP.
So, in that spirit and because it’s basically an annual tradition, everyone and their brother fired up their game of Madden NFL 21 to see who the game thinks will come out as the victor in the 2021 Super Bowl.
Is it going to be the Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Or is it going to be Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs?
Either way, someone is going to make history as Brady is going for his seventh ring and Mahomes is attempting to go back to back in just his fourth year in the league, third as a starter.
There are numerous 2021 Super Bowl simulations to choose from on YouTube, but the one I picked by far had the most views – over 306,000 as of this writing – so that’s what we’re going with today.
I have gone ahead and skipped to the actual game part of the video at the 2:38 mark for you.
Here’s how the scoring broke down…
KC: Hill – 73 yard TD pass from Mahomes: Chiefs 7,
Patriots Buccaneers 0
KC: Hill – 6 yard TD pass from Mahomes: Chiefs 14, Buccaneers 0
KC: Bell – 22 yard TD pass from Mahomes: Chiefs 21, Buccaneers 0
TB: Evans – 6 yard TD pass from Brady: Chiefs 21, Buccaneers 7
KC: Edwards-Helaire – 8 yard TD run: Chiefs 28, Buccaneers 7
TB: Brown – 24 yard TD pass from Brady: Chiefs 28, Buccaneers 14
TB: Brown – 1 yard TD pass from Brady: Chiefs 28, Buccaneers 21
Congratulations, Kansas City.
